Great Product

I love these rasps and won’t use anything else. They last far longer than any rasp I’ve used before. The best part is that they require much less effort.

Thank you for taking the time to share. We're glad to hear you're so happy with your Cody James Dymondback Rasp. It is exceptionally sharp and clog-resistant to make trimming quick and easy.

Will never go back to traditional rasps!

I’m a professional barefoot farrier with over 20 years of experience. I was a huge fan of the Exim Maxcut rasps, as they were sharp and far more efficient than traditional rasps. I was so upset when they went out of business in 2020, and I had to go on the hunt for a new rasp to try. Honestly, I grilled the owner of the CodyJames rasps for 45 minutes. I was very skeptical of the funky design, but I finally decided to give it a try. It only took about 3 hooves to get used to it, and 3 trims to feel totally comfortable. And I kid you not, after horse number 3, I was literally talking to my new rasp going “where have you been all my life?!” This rasp is SHARP and EFFICIENT. As they claim, it does NOT clog. And I’ll admit I am frugal, but I did almost 100 trims on this rasp before finally changing it!!! I use the soft side of my old rasps for finish work, and while slightly annoying to switch rasps, it is FAR worth it to enjoy this rasp. I had shoulder surgery, and it made my draft horse almost a breeze to do. Also, if you are a barefoot farrier who trims regularly, you will know the dilemma of a hoof that has just a little too much growth to rasp easily, yet not enough to warrant using the nippers…enter the Cody James rasp and viola- rasp it without a second thought. I’m telling you, these rasps are amazingly to use. They are outside the traditional norm, but you won’t regret giving them a try. You, too, will find yourself wondering “where have you been all my life?!!!” -Jeannette with Coast to Coast Barefoot.

Thank you for taking the time to share. We're glad you found your way to the Cody James Dymondback Rasp and it's working so well for you. Sometimes, a non-traditional design is exactly the step forward we need.


bought this 3 years ago the medium, love it , love it so much I bought my friend one as well, we both do our own horses feet , I am just now buying a new blade for it , still works great, but will be less work on me to purchase a new one and just the blade being only $45 is a no brainer , I have 3 horses, one is a mini and my friend has 6, we barefoot trim them every 4 weeks, LOVE THIS PRODUCT ( been trimming hooves for 5 yrs now )

Thank you for taking the time to share. We're glad you've had such a great experience with your Cody James Dymondback Rasp; they're certainly a wonderful tool for a trimmer to keep in their trimming kit.

Disappointed, but would buy again

Seriously, I wonder if I was shipped the fine instead of the medium. There is no marking to be able to tell the difference. This rasp does not remove as much material as the older style rasps, so I need to take more strokes to remove the same amount of hoof, meaning I'm slower. I can't give up the conventional rasp for rounding toes or doing any outer wall work, and I'm switching rasps to get a finer cut instead of just flipping it. Sometimes I need the conventional rasp to more quickly level off a high spot. Also, the tang is shorter. No doubt, I don't work as hard, however. Other plusses are: it vibrates the hoof less, it doesn't grab, so the hoof is not rotated or torqued when working it on the hoof stand, it has a lot more real estate, allowing longer strokes and more coverage area, it goes through the frog better, letting me keep the wall level, but overall it is harder to get a good level hoof. Finally, it is lighter. I would buy it again. To keep your frames from wearing along the edges, put a little heavy grease between the frame and insert where they touch.
