"You get what you pay for"
Despite the description "Super sharp blade", the knife came out of the package quite dull. I have butter knives that are sharper than this. With some work I was able to sharpen it and actually got a decent edge on the blade. This knife is not ergonomically designed and the handle is kind of clunky. It is too long between the loop and the handle for good dexterity unless you grip it shorter up the neck. Women with very small hands may have a problem with it. The loop is too big for opening abscesses, but with a sharp edge it is useful for trimming bars and frogs. If the folks who make this knife could redesign it with a shorter neck and a better contoured handle it would work pretty well for horse owners who want to trim their horses feet without a huge investment in professional quality knives.
"Not worth buying, imo."
Sorry, this was disappointing. The loop is too big to be useful and the blade is not sharp and I haven't been able to get it sharp.
