What other tools are available?

While you don’t necessarily need a multi-tool to remove grout, it’s certainly easier and quicker. However, if you don’t own a multi-tool, another alternative is to use grout rakes and tile adhesive scrapes.

Although these are suitable tools, they’re much more labour intensive compared to the Carbide Tipped blade as they will require a lot of pressure to achieve results. Plus, reaching into tight corners can be difficult, especially when using a tile adhesive scraper due its large surface.

However, the Carbide Tipped blade allows you to effectively plunge cut at rapid speed. Therefore, helping you save time and effort, especially when you’re trying to tackle a problem.
