The LEVEL5 9-in-1 Painter's Tool is a multi-purpose knife that lets you complete a variety of tasks on the job site.  It is so handy, it often resides permanently in the back pocket of the professional painter.

Multiple Uses

Multi tools like this 9-in-1 knife are designed to incorporate as many useful items that one could require when completing a painting project.  If you are starting a project you will need to unscrew light plates from the wall, open paint cans, remove caulk, scrape away old paint, remove and hammer nails and so on.  Having one such tool, fabricated from durable carbon steel and featuring a comfort grip (no slip) handle can create better work flow and help save space in your toolbox.

Key Features

Premium Carbon Steel Blade

When designing the LEVEL5 painter’s knife, we considered the aggressive scraping demands that would be required and chose a hardened and tempered carbon steel blade for enduring performance.  The mirror polished blade also makes it easy to clean.  As it is a carbon steel blade and not a stainless steel blade, make sure you follow the care instructions (below) to maintain your knife's top-notch performance over a long life.

Full-Length Internal Tang

The knife’s tang runs the full length of the blade handle for maximum strength and rigidity. This tool is designed for regular use without breaking, bending, or losing its sharpness.

Ergonomic Soft Grip

The handle is composed of a strong, glass-filled polypropylene core that is overmolded with soft grip TPR (thermoplastic rubber) which provides a comfortable no-slip grip.

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.  Follow these guidelines to prolong the life and performance of your high carbon steel tools:

Step 1 - After use, clean the tool's surface of any dirt, paint, or debris, giving careful attention to any nooks and crannies where moisture can collect.

Step 2 - Dry completely with a clean cloth or towel.

Step 3 - Use a lubricant, such as WD-40 to prevent corrosion. Coat the tool's entire surface, including any joints and crevices.

Step 4 - Organize your high carbon steel tools to promote optimal airflow and prevent moisture buildup. 

Whether you are rounding out your tool set, or just getting started with automatic drywall tools, LEVEL5 has a wide range of products to choose from.  Backed by one of the best warranties in the industry, these tools are crafted for professional applications and designed to improve your workflow and quality of output.
