The Bar and Sole Rasp-2-C Wide has a half-round form with knife blade style teeth, made of high carbon steel. It can be used in one or two hand grips to remove excess horn over the bars and sole of the hoof. These knife teeth shave horn to leave a very smooth surface. The SR-2-C is 1 1/8" wide and best for use in larger hands and on larger hooves. The teeth on the SR-2-C are slightly larger or coarser than on the SR-2-F. These teeth can be repeatedly re-sharpened using our special Honing Pad. After extensive use and wear, the cutting edges on the teeth can be restored using a fine, narrow flat rasp. There are three different arcs for use on
different shapes of sole. All Bar and Sole Rasps have a hoof pick point for cleaning dirt and grit from the the frog, the bars, and the white line. This tool is an easier to control
alternative to using a hoof knife on sole and bar horn that places less
stress on your wrists. There is no risk of gouging the sole--or
yourself--when using a Bar & Sole Rasp. The use life of these rasps is similar to that of a high quality hoof knife.
