Hair and grease is removed very quickly and easily, this is one piece of grooming kit you don't want to be without when your horses our moulting! It is also possible to use the shedding blade with one hand in a loop when the two ends are secured with the metal loop. The reverse of the blade is flat and can be used as a flexible sweat scraper. Can be used straight with two hands, or with the handles secured together for use with one hand. Best to only be used on soft areas of the horse, not boney bits!
