Evo Spring Powered Nipper
Essential natural trim tool
My friend Les Emery at Evolutionary Hoof Care Products has created a new "game changer" in nipper technology. Here's Emery's description and its precision engineering makes it ideal for natural trim mechanics:
- Powerful integrated springs for fast one- or two-hand use.
- Unique flared handles for easy grip and greater leverage.
- Closure screw for easy storage.
- Thin, fast cutting, easy to sharpen blades.
- Ideal for bevel cut on wall to create Mustang Roll.
- Two spring strengths: Firm and Soft Action for larger and smaller hands.
The action of the spring is to retract the blades from the hoof epidermis following the cut; thus, one does not have to commit this work energy when trimming, and time is also saved because the spring quickly reopens the nipper jaws. While I am not an advocate of one-handed trimming for many reasons explained in my books, the nipper's spring-action in principle and practice can play into the efficiency of experienced two-handed trimmers like myself. There is a learning curve involved due to the perpetual spring tension impacting one's grip, thus beginners, who might find this tension awkward, may prefer to master the spring-less GE nipper first.
Les and I agree that heavy-handed knifing and rasping of the volar dome is injurious to the horse's hooves. Precision nipper work, aided by minimal use of the hoof knife and rasp, is a direction we both welcome. I will add that ISNHCP clinicians can provide important instruction in nipper use; go here to learn more.
I use a 3rd party ap to get the best possible shipping rate, however it is not integrated with this website due to technical limitations. But after you place your order, I always refund the difference between what you pay at checkout (the USPS retail rate) and what I will save you using my 3rd Party ap. This typically amounts to substantial savings for both U.S. domestic and international orders, especially when you order multiple and heavier products.
