Standard GripSlim Grip

All my handles are hardwood with a comfortable ergonomic shape and a beautiful clear finish. With the JH Forge knife there are several handle choices. Please select left or right-handed and then consider the following choices: A long handle which measures 6.25" or a short handle which is 5.5". The Slim Grip also comes in long or short and is designed for those seeking a more full wrap around grip and less mass in your hand. See the video link below for more information.

"I have used JH Forge hoof knives exclusively for the last 4 years and haven't even looked at my old hoof knives since I made the switch. In my practice, I do a lot of lameness work. I really appreciate how the shape of the handle and the curve of the blade allow me greater control and precision when sorting through these complicated feet."
