Aside from taking my skis to have them stone grinded, what alternatives are there for removing the burnished case hardened damage that rocks and other debris cause to the edges of skis?

Otherwise progressive diamond stones and ceramic or arkansas stones to finiish and I never touch my base edges at all after original tuneup except to knock off any hanging burr from working on side edge. You do this freehand flat on the base edge with a arkansas stone or very coarse gummi.
