The SkiSharp tool includes a pair of hard chromed laser cut files, a brass cleaning brush and a tuning stick. The recommended Green and Ceramic stones are not included with the tool but are available separately.

If you are looking for one tool to perform all edge tuning, this is it; it performs exactly as described, and is fast and accurate and easy to use. If you get both sets of stones and the files, you will find that you don't need any of your old tools anymore, because it is faster to just use this system. Be sure to get the redressing tool, because it is needed to keep the stones in like-new condition.

My daughter has started racing, and I could see the expense of tuning her skies adding up. After researching for a Tuning kit, I stumbled across Ski Visions tools. WOW!! I can't say enough about this tool. After working on her skies for 10 minutes, even her coaches were impressed with how sharp the edges were for a race this past weekend.
I then used it on my 10 year old skies, and it has brought the edges back to life!! And this is after having the ski shop tune them twice already. Read all the info and watch the videos as there is some Great information on tuning the skies. I bought all of the tools and stones knowing I can now do a better job tuning our skies than the ski shop!
On a side note, several other parents saw how easy it was for me to sharpen the edges, and they were going to buy the tool also!

wow. this has saved me a lot of time. it sharpens the base and edges at the same time. the system uses two files or stone rather than more like I used to do. I recommend you watch his videos. there's a lot more instruction than the text description on his website. learned a ton from this guy

This tool does a great job of keeping the edges up to new ski preformance. Plus a time saver. Also leaves little to no burr. On race day maybe a hand file. To bring them up to world cup level.

This is a great tool for a speedy edge tune up because it does the side and edge at the same time. It seems to be accurate too. But bevel is tough to measure. This is my second purchase in 10 years because it has been dropped on cement so many times the nobs are broken off. Don't drop it!

Great product and simple to use. Plenty of videos on YouTube demonstrating the use of it. Make sure you get the Green and Pink stones for regular maintenance.

Great little tool - easy to set up and the youtube videos make it ultra easy to work out how to put it to use being a first time tuner. The file insert got a sharp edge up in no time - even with a little rock damage damage on the edges - they were aggresive and only took a couple of passses. Green stones polished the edges nice and smooth. I used the flattener first to ensure a flat base to work off and set factory bevels - can't wait for season opening in a few weeks and try the skis out. AC Victoria Australia.

I have three of these. My first tool the plastic broke under the foot that slides on the ski base. The second one I dropped on the floor and it shattered a chunk of plastic out of it essentially making it a functionless piece of equipment better suited for a door stop and the final one I am using now. As for my opinion I think buying three of them explains something. They work good for the average tuner. I have all the stones and accessories for these units so I had to get another one just to keep using the stones. I have found an FK tool although taking longer because I can only do one edge at a time makes a fantastic edge and I dare someone to break mine. The tool is just more rugged. I still use ski visions products regularly because they do work

I was in the market for a new edger tool and was impressed with the Ski Visions Ski Edge Tuning Tool. I do all my own tuning and occasionally for other instructors. I have used this several times before detailing my comments here. PROS - The tool is easy to use with accurate dials to easily set the edge angles. Use light pressure with multiple passes for better results. I also purchased the green and pink stones to complement the package and use them progressively from Steel file to Green honing to Pink Ceramic to get nice polished edges. The inserts are easy to change and the angle is not affected as is can be by changing between physical tools. CONS - I find that the inserts would knock against my vice (center mount) with each pass requiring the vice to be clamped at the riser or toe piece of the binding and the ski to be mounted a bit higher that usual. Also the retention screws lack a 'pad' of some kind to lessen damage to the stones as there is an audible grind when securing the stones into the tool. The stones need to be dressed frequently or at least rotated to avoid ware or soiling after multiple passes. I would recommend hand filing badly damaged edges before finishing with this tool so stones last longer. Overall this is a convenient tool that is compact, easy to use and very portable.

that says it all ! this great tool minimized the work and simplifies the edge "engineering"
to the point that ski tuning has become enjoyable. AND it is small and portable, yes i take it with me, even in the back-country...
