I have been slowly losing my fight with keeping my edges sharp on my rossi St Tis. After about 70 days of skiing on them, 35 of which has been on man made and ice, I decided it was time to take it to the shop for a base grind and to reset the base. After a brief discussion, the guy at the shop told me that I really need to plane that layer of titanal which abuts the metal edge of the Rosssi. According to him, it will hinder the sharpening of the edges. He said to take the edge planer and adjust it so you can take that down enough so it does not hinder the file. Seems to make sense because I am beginning to feel like my files are beginning to "ride" on something. Anyway, he is going to take care of this for me.
So here is my question. I have a SKS sidewall cutter. Very simple tool with a simple blade. Will that blade take down that layer of titanal? I have the Rossi LT as well, so I would have to do it that ski sooner or later. Thanks Pete
