What Size Putty Knife Do You Need? (For Drywall, Home Repairs & DIY Projects)

LEVEL5 offers one of the broadest range of hand tools (joint/putty knives, pans, mixers & more) in the industry. Here’s Lydia (aka @DrywallShorty) with a look at which sizes best match your professional or DIY needs.

Available in six sizes (3”, 4”, 5”, 6”, 8”, 10”), there’s a LEVEL5 putty knife for every finishing scenario you might find yourself in. Here’s how you might use the full range:

00:00 – 👉 Introduction.

00:14 – 👉 The 3” knives are perfect for tight areas and awkward angles.

00:41 – 👉 4”, 5” and 6” knives are universal knives, specifically great for picking angles, hand taping angles, and screws. Starting from scratch? The 4″ is our beginner suggestion!

02:43 – 👉 8” and 10″ knives are fantastic for wiping tap, wide liners and tub surrounds. Perfect for large patches and wider work.
