Some good additions to go with this tool

This tool offers greater precision and versatility compared to similar on-the-go sharpeners such as Toko (you can exchange diamond stones with files etc). It is also more compact and sturdy and easy to carry with the rest of your equipment. It can't replace machine tune-ups though, but it can definitely help to get the best of your edges and prolong maintenance intervals.

Use gently to avoid scraping the diamonds off the backing. This is a good pretreatment for more refined work - I am using the skivisions tool next.

No it is not a accurate a shop bevel. I live in South Carolina now and it does a good job. Be careful to properly anchor your ski and clean the debris from the tool after every other pass. It will do a good job.

Overall this tool works well. Setting the angle is easy, changing the stone from side edge to bottom edge is easy. Easy to set the stone in different positions for more even wear. The tool is a little tough to handle on the front and back curves of the ski, though not a big deal. You do have to be somewhat carful when using the mill file as burrs tend to get caught along the sliding surface of the tool and can put minor scratches on the base of the skis. This is not a problem if you are paying attention and clean the tool as needed.

I don't like this tool - what's the point? I don't think you should be re-setting the angle on your edges unless you're a shop, of you really know your stuff. In either case, you'll have much better, dedicated tools for this. If you want to use it as a guide because you don't trust yourself to free-hand sharpen with a diamond stone or such, then maybe, but I think you'd be better off with simply a blue diamond stone, and free-hand it carefully. It'll be much easier, and you'll get better results. Otherwise, seems well-built and durable and whatnot...other than the fact that you're sharpening with exactly the same spot on your stone over and over again.

After using the Fk Multi Edge Tuner with the file and followed diamond stone I went for a day of skiing on the existing spring like conditions. Needless to say I am very happy to have been told that this tool and it's accessories is a welcome addition to my repair and maintenance kit for my skis

This tool is great for quick tune-ups to keep edges in tip-top shape all season. A few strokes using the DMT 3-Diamond Stone Set (sold separately) removes burrs and sharpens the edges while maintaining the bevels. My ski club held a tuning and waxing clinic, and I demonstrated how easy and effective this tool was. By the end of the evening a lot of people were asking where they could get one. (I only use the file when I need to do some aggressive material removal. The diamond stones do a neater job and are better for routine maintenance.)

I never thought at this price I would get such quality. Fantastic tool. Works great. Had a swix similiar tool that had broken and was looking for a replacement. The FK multi is in a class 10 or 100 times better. The swix is a toy compared to the FX. Who says a brand name is worth it? Not me. I am a convert - so long swix.

Have had this product for 10+ years and have found it reliable and does the job with both file and stone.

Flimsy, mine broke. Doesn't work great
