MFC 10 inch One Handled Foal Nipper
This 10" one-handed foal nipper has a hook that goes over the top of your hand and finger loops for your fingers, enabling you to open the nipper with only the one hand while you hold the hoof of the fractious baby with the other hand.
No more need for a nipper spring which seems to work okay in your hand but then does not go nicely into the shoeing box.
Ideal for horseshoers who do a lot of breeding farm work, or who do a lot of miniature horses.
These nippers are made from H13 steel and forged by hand at the anvil. No dies are used, they are only crafted by the skillful hands of MFC's smiths.
The blade edge is hardened to Rockwell 65 hardness, the base of the blade to 60, and the handles to 50 (so they will not bend).
