  • FINISH FASTER » LEVEL5 medium-flex blue steel blade is ideal for applying and floating coats of joint compound efficiently until a smooth finish is achieved.
  • SUPER COMFORTABLE » LEVEL5 grip profile was developed through years of finisher feedback to minimize hand fatigue. Solid composite handle is lightweight, durable and solvent resistant.
  • PROFESSIONAL GRADE » The handle core is double riveted to the back plate using stainless steel rivets prior to overmolding. A heavy-guage aluminum back plate provides outstanding strength and rigidity.
  • NOT CORROSION RESISTANT! Blue steel blades offer outstanding finishing performance, but require special care between uses (see below). Choose from our stainless steel blade options if you require corrosion resistance.

Overview

LEVEL5 Blue Steel Drywall Taping Knives provide outstanding flex, feel and work-ability. These are lightweight workhorse drywall knives which offer premium build quality, precision results and fast application rates.

DESIGN FEATURES

  • Premium blue steel blade with precision flex for a smoother finish.
  • Wider, thicker and stronger blade in comparison with competitive models.
  • Lightweight solid polypropylene handles that are both impact and solvent-resistant.
  • Alloy-Metal hammer end for setting drywall nails.
  • All LEVEL5 hand tools feature large hang holes.

Care Instructions

High Carbon Steel and Blue Steel blades are often preferred by finishing professionals because they provide outstanding flex, feel and work ability. However, unlike stainless steel, they will oxidize/rust without proper care between uses. We recommend that the knives be cleaned thoroughly then lightly coated with WD-40 or a similar product prior to storage. The knives should also be stored upright while they are drying, to ensure water doesn't collect near the handle.

As an alternative option, we offer most of the same knife configurations with stainless steel blades for easier care and convenience (but a slightly stiffer feel).

PLEASE NOTE - On all of our carbon steel and blue steel finishing knives, we apply a thin, temporary protective lacquer finish to the blades; this provides protection from any minor oxidization between the factory through to the end user. The lacquer wears off quickly during the first few uses. However, if you would like to lightly sand it off, we suggest using 220 grit or finer sand paper. Be very careful - if you sand too aggressively, you may introduce grooves into the blade edge which can then appear in the mud finish.

Here's Scott Murray of Level5 Tools with a quick overview of how to properly care for your blue steel and carbon steel tool blades.
