More about this item

Here we have a nice vintage Hand Forged 1800's Farriers hoof parer, used for cutting/ trimming/ shaving the horse hoof. The wooden pad is positioned against the farrier's shoulder and pressure is applied by moving the shoulder forward. The butteris is used by some farriers for part of the functions normally accomplished with the hoof knife.

Tool is 19 3/4" long

All surface rust has been removed, ready for paint or oil.


A little history for you.

The making of wrought iron became established in Europe about 500 B.C. The wrought iron was much harder than bronze, and the iron ores were more widely distributed. The other ingredient, charcoal, was also readily available.
 Wroughtiron, though not as hard as steel, did have a quality superior to steel in that it resisted rusting due to its silica, or glass, content. The silica arranged itself in thin layers in the wrought iron and restricted the formation of rust.

The mild steel used today to make types of objects from an earlier time may not resist rust to the degree wrought iron does.
