    What's your technique are trowelling the tile with the ribbed edge as well as the wall on large format tiles

    I use a round notched trowel on to wall and back spread the tile to achive a near 100% coverage. My current trowel met a sad end under bag of adhesive so it needs replacing.

    You want a ragni 4x10mm round notch

    Thank you. Any reason you know why they aren’t on sale in many tile shops? Only the squared notches. Is the round notch method not necessary?

    It's easier to achieve solid bed with a round notch I find and those trowels on the tile and substrate bed in very easily to achieve excellent coverage. In wet areas and externally solid bed is crucial however you achieve it

    Selco sell the carbon steel version.

    Amazon sell the stainless steel version but only the left handed trowel.

    I have both. I bought the left handed trowel by mistake so knocked off the rivets and re-hung the handle for a right hander.

    I still use square notched trowels too, depends entirely on the application.

    Thank you. What thickness of bed does it leave - again they are suitable for all tile sizes?

    I find it leaves a bed depth similar to that of a 10mm square notch, I think I made my own from a genesis trowel as I prefer those handles

    The handle on the steel ragni trowel is horrible, it’s plastic.
