The “Mini” straight hoof knife is a smaller version of our standard straight hoof knife. Because the handle is smaller than the standard’s, it may provide a better fit for a smaller hand size. The blade is designed for those who prefer a narrower blade. This is our version of a hoof knife style that has been used by farriers, veterinarians, and horsemen for centuries. All Ringel Knives come sharpened and are shipped in a protective tool case. The “Mini” hoof knife also comes in an offset blade style.
