Scrapers & Putty Knives
Choose quality putty knives for glazing and caulk
Putty knives have many purposes, from adding window glaze to tooling the caulk you put around the window. Flexible knives are best for applying glazing, caulk and tar. Stiff putty knives double as scrapers and can guide trimming cuts when hanging drywall or wallpaper. Craftsman, Stanley and Red Devil make both types of knives in a range of sizes. You may want to have several different sizes of these affordable tools on hand to suit various purposes. Many brands, including Vim Tools, sell them in sets for convenience. Better putty knives feature stainless steel blades that resist corrosion and are easy to clean.
