Custom Knife Simplifies Drywall Work
The secret lies in rounding the corners.
I’ve found that by rounding the corners of a broad 9-in. taping knife, I can apply drywall compound faster and with fewer ridges to remove later. I’ve also found that I can minimize sanding if I go over an area with this knife after the compound starts to firm up.
