I only use panzer for initial 2 passes at 7 degrees depending upon the sidewall and ski. Then I sharpen with panzer at 1 degree more than my final angle. So if I want a 3 degree as the final angle, I will use the panzer at 4 degrees until edge is sharp.


then I switch files to a 100 mm 13 or 15 TPC no -chrome (Usually Homenkol) file at my final bevel angle of 3. 


Then progression of stones, generally, 200, 400, 600 and then a final hone/polish with a surgical stone or ceramic all using 50/50 water/denatured alcohol mix and wiping down the edge with a rag between each stone. 


Remove the hanging burr with an arkansas, surgical, ceramic or true hardstone and then a couple of NO pressure passes with a HARD gummi downthe edge point and you are ready to slice and dice!

I'd love to see what you did to it. Pictures would be fine great if you didn't have time for a video.


Here is what I did to improve my Side Of The BEAST Pro.


Now I go skiing.  Sunny day at Bachelor!  See ya!
