The “Mini” offset hoof knife is a smaller version of the standard offset hoof knife. The handle is made to fit a smaller hand size, and the blade was designed for those who prefer a narrower blade. The offset blade helps keep the handle from getting in the way while removing sole in the hoof trimming process. All Ringel Knives come sharpened and are sent in a protective tool case. The “Mini” hoof knife also comes in the more traditional straight blade style.
