How To Check If Your Ski Edges Are Sharp

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Here is a simple way to check if your edges are sharp or not.   In this example, the ski was run through a progression of diamond stones after much skiing, no files used.  The initial edge setting was with files then a progression of stones.  At some point a file may be used again, but for the most part maintenance can be done with a progression of diamond stones to maintain a sharp edge.

Well, not quite.  Some pen plastic is softer than others.  This is a great simple check.  Yes, I do prefer the Paper-mate Pens you see me use.  They are pretty hard.

Have you used the plastic tuning sticks they sell?  Is that basically the same thing?

Well.....call me a cheeps cape!  I have too many pens!  I'm not as cheep as the Ski-Visions guy though!  I buy waxes and brushes!  :beercheer: 

 

BTW, I do use these sot of things as well!

Hey, Jacques — didn't you post this in another thread?  I've been using this method for a while, and it works great (though I'll have to consider my selection of pens).

More than likely I have.  I will post my videos here wherever it seem appropriate.  Yes, pen choice is "critical"  Ha ha.  Really though the type I used are super!
