Continental filler knives like that are great, I only have a cheapo set but I really like them.

I'm a DIYer doing a bunch of filling on wood projects and my internal walls at home - if you want a review (video or written) from me I'd be happy to do one.

They fit comfortably in to your palm unlike the usual ones.

Turned up yesterday, thx Puma.

I think they are great. The handle looks good and fits your hand very well almost setting you in the right position to apply filler.
I'm not a fan of the normal ones as it's always uncomfortable, these crafted handles not only eliminate that but they then become a pleasure to use.
Nice bit of flex on the steel too, just right for my needs.

So definitely recommend.

Thanks for the offer but I just need the one review here for the moment.

They are for sale here https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Filler-Filli ... 3042164505 if you fancy them. In my opinion, as you have to hold them for hours at a time sometimes, they are worth buying! :-)

Mate, I honestly like em and can see me buying replacements. It's that grip - like I said - sets you up nicely.

I will also be trying your paint stirrers when my current ones get toooooo heavy!
