Refurbishing an old trowel
The larger trowel has a substantially thicker blade and shank then the 45-5 model. I would expect these attributes to make it less prone to the fatal blade *snap* you sometimes encounter when popping up large chunks of dirt (or stabbing at the dirt, too). It also feels about twice as heavy. I'm not sure yet if that's a good thing or not.
This can be done with any trowel. I have a hard time finding a 5-inch trowel locally, but the 6-inch model (45-6) seems to be everywhere. If I ever need to replace my trowel, this one should be easy enough to grind down.
Now, if I could only find some fieldwork...
