Square mouth piece

I have never used one, but, a very well respected horseman says it's the way to go on certain horses. I took the liberty of working on my inlaying skills on this one. I do need the practice and she won't mind.
 I use 4130 steel on the shanks, and 304 stainless steel for the hinge. Fine silver for the inlay-ed initial and edge.
I kind of had my doubts when this bit was described to me, but after getting it built I think it will really work well. I'm sure I will build more after this one gets used after Christmas.
