The Multi-grip Contouring Bar & Sole Rasp Original (SR-1)
with white handle

The Multi-grip Contouring Sole Rasp Original (SR-1) is curved to fit into every aspect of the sole and bars. Its unique shape provides a variety of hand-grips for enhanced leverage.
The pointed end makes a very effective hoof pick.

Somewhat similar to our popular round sole rasp, but the tines and action are more aggressive and versatile. With the Multi-grip Contouring Sole Rasp Original you can safely trim the bars with more gradual control than a hoof knife. Used carefully, the Sole Rasp is easier than a hoof knife, with less worry of accidentally soring the sole. An excellent tool, but when addressing the sensitive areas of the sole, always use with caution. Features white vinyl covering on either end for an easier grasp. Becoming very popular with customers from dry climates where the hooves are rock hard and difficult to work.

Please note
that the Sole Rasp Original has regular pointed rasp tines. The new Sole Rasp Pro has "knife-like" teeth.

The Multi-grip Contouring
Bar & Sole Rasp Pro (SR-2)
with black handle

The Multi-grip Contouring Sole Rasp Pro has rows of "knife-like" teeth. These teeth 'shave' the horn surface, leaving a smoother finish than the pointed rasp teeth on the Sole Rasp Original (SR-1) which have more of a 'scraping' action.

The Sole Rasp Pro (SR-2) is also somewhat easier to use, especially on clean and healthy horn. With rougher surfaces it can be best to use the Sole Rasp Original (SR-1) first, followed by the Sole Rasp Pro (SR-2) for the best results.

Also, the hoof pick point on the end of the Sole Rasp Pro (SR-2) is wider than that on the Sole Rasp Original (SR-1) and works even better for scraping the hoof clean in preparation for trimming.

Made from high carbon steel, these rasps have a long life when cleaned and oiled on a regular basis (WD-40 works well for this).
