There are two types of bits and ONLY two types of bits.
Snaffle: a bit WITHOUT shanks
Curb bit: a bit WITH shanks and a curb strap or chain.
The moutpiece has NOTHING to do with whether it makes it a snaffle or curb bit. The absence or inclusion of shanks does.
Bit makers will call a jointed mouth bit with shanks a snaffle, but it simply isn't.
