Hm, it looks interesting. I wish they had a better picture of it so that I could see what the blade looked like though.

I will say that the if the video is real, it looks awesome though.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

A new hacksaw blade is like $2 at the most but a used one works well for shedding out a horse. I use it because it will curve when going over the hips and such. Just pinch each end with your thumb and forefinger and you're in business.

smrobs, Id like to see the blade as well...a friend told me this "a fine-toothed hacksaw blade imbedded in a slot cut into a piece of staircase railing and glued into place".

Saddlebag, never used a hacksaw blade before...but from the sounds of how this new shedding blade is...sounds pretty similar!!

It's definitely working, but I would want to see the underside, too. I like being resourceful and saving myself from spending unesessary money when I can avoid it by finding an alternative.
My Easy Block works just the same. Only disadvantage is that they wear down (but, so does a curry comb)

I have to say, too, that in my experience, those circular curry combs don't work nearly as well as these ones: Shedding Blade 26 Inch - Statelinetack.com
