Dear Hoof-Care Professional,

Despite the many different ways to sharpen knives — stones, files, diamond hones, Dremel tools, and more — many farriers have a hard time with these methods because each removes too much steel and leaves scratches in the blade that inhibit smooth cutting.

To learn a new approach to sharpening your knives, download American Farriers Journals’ FREE Checklist, “Sharpening Knives with a Buffer.”

Sharpening knives with a buffer provides the smoothest finish with less resistance than other knife sharpening methods. This technique sharpens the knife without removing any steel and polishes the blade so it slips through the hoof with a minimum of resistance.
