LEVEL5 has put years of cutting-edge innovation and design into the construction of our full range of drywall joint knives.
Drywall finishing is an art and you need tools which are made with this in mind.
Although joint knives (also known as "Putty Knives") seem simple on the surface, LEVEL5 has put years of cutting-edge innovation and design into the construction of our full range of drywall joint knives. In this video, L5 CEO Scott Murray gives you the rundown on why exactly the LEVEL5 Putty Knives are the best on the market.
This LEVEL5 6" Welded Joint Knife offers outstanding quality and a Lifetime Guarantee. It features a patent-pending, full length internal tang that has been robotically welded at four points of contact for extreme durability. The world's strongest drywall knives. They feature a premium, lightweight stainless steel construction, are extremely comfortable in the hand and clean up like a dream.
How does this differ from the competitors? Massively. As Scott points out in the video, most of the other manufacturers of hand finishing tools implement a partial tang into their joint knives which can lead to uneven stress dispersal and eventually an earlier failure relative to the full tang design we use.
Does a full tang blade cost more to produce? Of course, but we position ourselves in the service of the finisher and at the end of the day, we want to offer the best quality tools you can get your hands on.
Does a full tang knife last longer? You bet. That’s why we confidently offer lifetime warranties on all of our stainless steel, soft-grip and welded knives. Break the knife after years of heavy use and we’ll replace it free of charge!
