The butteris is used by some farriers for part of the functions normally accomplished with the hoof knife.

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.
