Bon Introduces New Steel City Trowels

Steel City TrowelsBon’s offering of contractor-grade hand tools has expanded with a line of the highest grade professional finishing trowels. Bon Tool is marketing the new trowels under the brand name Steel City Trowels by Bon. Over 200 new trowels are in production, covering all the most popular sizes in demand for concrete and plaster/stucco work.

The Trowels Feature:
  • Highest grade finish trowels available
  • Both lightweight and durable aluminum shank
  • Premium blade materials
  • Precision ground

Steel City Trowels are produced to the highest quality standards, setting a superior performance standard in the marketplace. Bon’s new trowels feature an industry exclusive rivet system. The blade utilizes two copper rivets to which they attach the aluminum shank. This provides maximum strength and durability.

Tom Harford, the Engineering Manager at Bon Tool, states: “It is a tool that has been relatively “unchanged” for decades to the naked eye, but improvements in manufacturing equipment, riveting systems, hardening and tempering, and ergonomics gave us an opportunity to further improve on one of Bon’s most sought after product lines. At Bon, we are all about continual improvement, and we are proud to see these top of the line trowels rolling off the production line right here in the Steel City, Pittsburgh.”

Bon Steel City Trowels are available in four blade materials which are of the finest grade and precision ground: Golden Stainless Steel; Razor Stainless Steel; Blue Steel; and also Carbon Steel. Options include either square end or round end, short or long shank. The wide variety of available styles and sizes come with choice of Bon’s patented Comfort Wave or Camel Back Wood handle. Both handle options have ergonomic designs for comfortable, all day use.
