The Speed Rocker drywall knife adds a “tape hook” on the thumb rest so you can hold a measuring tape and make a score mark at the same time, and some drywall guys love the fact that there’s a fold-out drywall saw hidden in the handle. But at $20, it’s a bit expensive for some people’s taste.
It’s solidly built — nice and heavy-feeling in your hand — and one side of the handle is also a drywall rasp for truing up edges, though we wonder if you’d still want to grab it after filing down drywall with the handle.
We’ve seen this knife a couple of times in the toolbelts of professional drywall workers, but we’re still a little held up on the price — and its specific combination of features. What do you think? Let us know in comments.
