After spending months filling nail holes, repairing cracked plaster, and talking to a painting contractor with 30 years of experience, we’ve found that the Craftsman 1½-inch Flex Stainless Putty Knife is the best putty knife for most people. There are three basic things that make this putty knife great: The 1½-inch width is perfect for filling small holes; the stainless steel blade won’t rust and can be easily cleaned; and the handle is long and very comfortable.

Craftsman 1-½-inch Flex Stainless Putty Knife, our pick

Craftsman 1-½-inch Flex Stainless Putty Knife

Our pick
Putty knives are basic tools, but what sets the Craftsman apart is a comfortable handle, a stainless blade that resists rust, and an extra half an inch of putty-pushing leverage.
We recommend
Husky 1-1/2 in. Flexible Putty Knife, runner-up

Husky 1-1/2 in. Flexible Putty Knife

The Husky is the same tool as the Craftsman, but a small design detail in the handle makes it slightly less comfortable to hold.
