A tool ("blacksmith cutting tool" ?) which I had never seen

Recommended Posts

We used to use a cutter like this to cut stock for horseshoes. I had one that fit in the hardy hole. The trick to them was getting JUST the right heat to cut. Not too hot but just cooled to a black heat. Somebody invented the nice cold shears that most shoers use today and they took the place of that tool,at least for farriers.
