I bought a really cheap one and it worked pretty good for the first few times I used it, but it got dull pretty fast.
I saw one that was completely metel for $20 or so and thought that one would probably be a lot better!
I would suggest getting a fully metal one, as it would probably stay sharper, longer and do a better job.
I can't remember where I bought it now but I bought a fully metal one with and this was the great thing, removable blade so my other half just unscrewed it everytime it got a bit dull and ran itover his sharpening stone.
I gotta agree a bit with previous comment relation to pulling, we do it alot with our horses but I have to say I have never been a fan of it I cringe when I see it being done. Many, Many people have said to me oh don't worry they dotn know whats going on and to be fair some of our just stand there expressionless but then there are the few who really kick off when its being done and I hate it, I feel bad for doing it. Just my thoughts anyway.. Im sure sheep arent that keen on beng shaved but hey ho.
