On a Swiss Army knife, there are many useful gadgets. Most of them are logical and people know just what they are, such as the magnifying glass, or the scissors, or the corkscrew, etc. As well as several different blades and hooks.
But then there’s the “thing for getting stones out of a horse’s hooves”. Absolutely everyone knows that that is what that little spike is for - but they don’t know what its name is, and more than likely they’ve never had to dig a stone out of a horse’s hoof with it.
My question is - what is it called? And does anybody really use it for that?
On a related note, do the Swiss Army ride horses?
