Produce a top-notch finish easier and more efficiently, while simultaneously reducing wrist and hand fatigue.

LEVEL5 Offset Taping Knives feature handles that are offset slightly from the surface of the blades. This design enables you to lay the blades flatter against the wall for smoother, tighter finishes while avoiding hand contact with the fresh compound.

LEVEL5 Offset Taping Knives also feature a unique, ergonomic handle design that enables you to remove the hammer end so you can mount these knives to a standard painter’s pole or a LEVEL5 extendable skimming blade handle (using an optional adapter). You can then adjust the knives to the ideal angle for any job.


  • Premium Quality Blades - LEVEL5 Offset Taping Knives are manufactured using premium, precision cut stainless steel.

  • Ergonomic Handle - Comprising a strong, glass-filled polypropylene core over-molded with soft grip TPR elastomer for all-day comfort.
  • Heavy Duty Construction - The handle is permanently affixed to the 5mm thick aluminum blade mount using multiple heavy-duty stainless steel rivets. Unlike other designs, this handle will not spin or loosen over time with heavy commercial use.

  • Removable Hammer End - On top of the handle is a die-cast zinc hammer end that can be used to reset drywall screws. It also serves as a cap to ensure joint compound can’t fill the handle when in use without the provided pole adaptor. 

Available in Two Blade Configurations

0.6mm (0.24-inch) STIFF - This 3.5-inch deep blade is Ideal for applying/smoothing joint compound on walls and ceilings, as well as for filling joints and outside corner beads. This sturdy blade also works great for scraping applications, such as removing popcorn ceilings. Features a square-edge stainless steel blade.

0.5mm (0.2-inch) FLEX - This 4-inch deep blade is ideal for finishing coats and offers perfect flex for maximum feel and control.  Features a rounded-edge stainless steel blade to reduce lap marks.  Also great for overhead finishing or wiping down tape when mounted to a pole using the adaptor provided.
