Types of Masonry Trowels
– Brick trowel: used for spreading mortar on bricks or concrete blocks
– Bucket trowel: wide-bladed tool for scooping mortar from a bucket
– Concrete finishing trowel: smooths concrete surfaces
– Corner trowel: shapes concrete around corners
– Gauging trowel: round-nosed tool for mixing and applying mortar

Uses of Masonry Trowels
– Brick trowel: precise control of mortar placement
– Bucket trowel: buttering bricks and smoothing mortar
– Concrete finishing trowel: smoothing concrete surfaces

Specialized Masonry Trowels
– Margin trowel: works mortar in tight spaces and corners
– Pointing trowel: fills small cavities and repairs mortar joints
– Pool trowel or round trowel: prevents digging into wet concrete
– Step trowel: shapes inside angles on concrete steps
– Tile setter: holds more mortar for smoothing large bricks and blocks

The Masonry trowel is a hand trowel used in brickwork or stonework for levelling, spreading and shaping mortar or concrete. They come in several shapes and sizes depending on the task. The following is a list of the more common masonry trowels:

  • Brick trowel: or mason's trowel is a point-nosed trowel for spreading mortar on bricks or concrete blocks with a technique called "buttering". The shape of the blade allows for very precise control of mortar placement.
  • Bucket trowel: a wide-bladed tool for scooping mortar from a bucket; it is also good for buttering bricks and smoothing mortar.
  • Concrete finishing trowel: is used to smooth a surface after the concrete has begun to set; it is held nearly level to the surface of the concrete, and moved with a sweeping arc across the surface.
  • Corner trowel: used for shaping concrete around internal or external corners; the handle is located at the center of a 90-degree bend in the blade for balance and the ability to apply even pressure to both sides of a corner.
  • Gauging trowel: a round-nosed trowel used for mixing mortar and applying small amounts in confined areas; it is also used to replace crumbled mortar and to patch concrete.
  • Margin trowel: a flat-nosed trowel used to work mortar in tight spaces and corners where a larger pointed trowel will not fit.
  • Pointing trowel: a smaller version of the brick trowel. Useful for filling in small cavities and repairing crumbling mortar joints.
  • Pool trowel or round trowel: a variation of the concrete finishing trowel; rounded blade prevents it from digging into wet concrete.
  • Step trowel: similar to the corner trowel, it is used for shaping inside angles on concrete steps; the center of the 90-degree bend in the blade allows for rounded edges.
  • Tile setter: a brick trowel with an extra-wide blade to hold more mortar than a standard brick trowel. It is ideal for smoothing mortar on large bricks and blocks.
  • Tuck pointer: used for neatly packing mortar between bricks and blocks when repointing and repairing crumbling mortar in masonry walls.
