Talking Beveled Trowel for drywall finishing? Where to buy?

Where can I get a 14" (or similar length) beveled trowel? I'd like to have one for finishing drywall but no one locally seems to carry one. I've checked Home Depot and Lowe's and one drywall store. So, I'll just order one online if someone can recommend a place.

Thanks,

Rick

It's also known as a curved or finishing trowel. The long ends are slightly raised in the center (maybe 1/8"-1/4" in the center). It allows you to form a slightly raised surface on the drywall joint easily.

I found one here... kinda pricey, though:

Know any cheaper sources?

All-Wall

trowels are going to be much more expensive than knives.
I just got a new All-Wall catalog today and the trowels are 30.00 -40.00

good place to get stuff if you do any drywall

Get one 4 1/2 x14. That is the one Myron uses. I am going to use a 4 1/2 x 12 as that stores in my pan easier and I use a 12 inch knife otherwise.
