>> Sharpening the Zip: Frequent honing keeps this blade razor sharp. Use a fine grit, tapered, conical diamond knife sharpener.
>> CAUTION: The Zip Knife is RAZOR sharp—be careful! Protect your blade: do not use the Zip on dirt, grit, rocks, or hardened horn: these are not hoof picks.
>> Specialized for Frog, Bars, and White Line Trimming: The Zip is specially designed for precise, controlled trimming of the frog and thin shaving on bars and white line. It is more like a scalpel than a carving blade. The extra-thin blade is not meant for scooping hard, heavy sole and bar horn. Use the EVO Bar and Sole Rasps clean away all dirt, rocks, and excess sole and bar horn before applying the Zip Knife.
