One of the initial steps in spreading and smoothing concrete is screeding. After being poured, the finisher uses a screed as a straightedge to strike off excess wet concrete, while bringing the surface level of the material to a predetermined height for floating and finishing. It is important for the finisher to use a straight tool with high structural integrity, to create the most even surface.
Once you hold one of our Elite Series™ Professional Drywall Knives, it becomes clear why this has become a finisher’s favorite. Each features a non-rust stainless steel blade and handle, ideal for scraping, paint preparation, and drywall finishing.

But which is right for you and your job? Some basic information about metal properties can help guide you in the right direction.
