Currycomb
A currycomb is used to clean a horse or cow. The coarse dried dirt can be gently scraped off the skin with it. The currycomb also opens the sweat holes of the horse skin (1). The currycomb consists of a metal plate with two to eight rows of short (approx. 3 mm) blunt teeth and a handle (approx. 10 cm) or strap for putting the hand through. The working part can have different shapes. For example, it can consist of serrated plates that are mounted parallel in a wooden or to an iron plate or frame (approx. 15 by 10 cm). It can also be a semi-cylindrical plate, where both sides are serrated, or consist of different serrated rings that are mounted on a plate or crossbar. Nowadays a rubber disc with studs is also used. The currycomb can be combined with a mane comb, the blunt teeth of which are much longer. Distinguished from the soft horse brush, used to clean and smooth the horse's short hair. [MOT]

Diamond cleaver
The cleaver splits the diamond crystal with this knife. It is made of steel and can be of different sizes and weights. It is rectangular in shape, approx. 3 by 10 cm, and weighs approx. 70 gr. The blade should not be sharp as it should split and not cut. Before splitting, a cut is made in the stone with a sharp diamond or laser. The notch must be V-shaped. Then the cleaver is placed against one of the sloping sides of the kerf. With the splitter hammer, an iron bar of 20 to 30 cm or a wooden hammer, you give a short blow to the cleaver to divide the stone into two pieces. The aim is to give the rough diamond a good shape, so that it can then be sawn and / or cut. [MOT]
