After removing the old horseshoe, the first step in horse hoof trimming is to use a knife to remove material from the bottom of the hoof.
Knives are a must-have tool for farriers, so the blades need to remain sharp for a long time. Our knives are made from high-quality tool steel that makes them last for lifetime and still a pleasure to use.
Hoof knives need to be comfortable and balanced for easy use by the farrier. The wooden handle gives it a natural feeling and a good grip. The blade is aligned with the lower part of the handle for better precision and accuracy while trimming the horses sole.
Hooks made with a smaller radius make it easier to trim each horse. Also, by having a small hook, farriers can accurately form smaller holes in the hooves when removing abscesses.

Right, Left or Loop Blades?
Hoof knives are available in the right and left versions; some farriers have both left and right blades. We also offer the loop blades knives.
