i use a hawk and trowel for most application work, knives where holding the hawk is awkward, and boxes where the speed pays. if its a room or two I'd rather trowel and save cleaning out the flat box. That may be a function of my Blueline boxes being a pain to adjust. A lot of guys here use the boxes to run the butts, and i will for texture ceilings, but for a good finish I can't beat the feedback of a trowel.. it occurs to me that might also be because Canada exports its good lumber and keeps the crap to drive its trades nuts with. framing is never square straight or plumb once the furnace gets the wood twisting. so there is always something under the drywall to correct for.
