Copper mouths are great but get a good quality one. I had a copper dee ring and the copper was too soft. You could see bite marks in it, and had a sharp edge from the wear.

I would shop for a brand name one. Might be a little more expensive but it will last. Its hard to tell without looking at the bit, and trying to scratch the copper.

That is the bit I use. It says Korsteel on the side. I like it and my horse seems to like it. No chance of pinching the corners of the mouth.
I paid I beleive $29.

I've heard that if it does get sharp edges you can just file them down. Don't quote me on that though as I haven't owned one.
