Hastings knives hold an excellent edge and are easy to sharpen. The loop knife is for paring the sole and is drawn toward the operator with the lower front-edge sharp. All knives are made of knife-grade carbon steel.
The knife stays sharp and works well. Nice handle for good leverage.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts! We're glad you're enjoying your Hastings Loop Knife
I was very excited
to get my knife and use it, to find out its not sharp when it arrives. So I had to order a sharpener for loop knifes. Nofice trimmer just starting to trim my own. Curious why they don't come sharp.
Thank You for your review, all hoof knives should arrive sharpened. Can you send us a photo of the cutting edge of the knife. Thank You
