- This aggresive stone is designed specifically to sharpen the steel cutting blade on the Ski Visions Base Flattener.
- This is the same stone compund as the Green Stone, however unlike the Green Stone the grit on the Blade Sharpening Stone is not crushed, leaving it aggressive enough to sharpen the steel cutting blade but far too aggressive for ski edges.

- Stone measures 4" long.
- Made in the USA.

This is a review about the Ski Visions system. This system is great for working on your bases, getting them ready to wax and having them in prime condition for skiing. It is not expensive and easy to use..
Get one...you will love it.
I don't know any other tool to bevel my skwal base. The fact is : it works! Don't forget a fast hard dewaxing after the job is done, in order to remove any P-tex hair. And last : a light shave. Then you can start waxing...
I would have given 5 stars if the stone had been longer to span across the whole base width... I'm quite sure skivision will produce such a stone shortly.
If you like tunning as I do, that's (one) of your must have tools!
puts a much better edge on the blade than emery cloth. can shave the base with less pressure and do a much smoother job.
Easier to use than the small green stone
Keep the steel blade sharp to avoid chatter
I use their Ski Sharp Edge tuning tool too. This Base Flattening & Structure tool is even easier to use that that one. Do read their web site's instructions - very helpful - before you start. It only took 2 or three passes (4-6 strokes per pass) down each ski to flatten and texture the ski. I used hardware store acetone to remove wax from base first. I'm a spring skier so I'm going to purchase the course texture stone.
I never liked stone grinds. They were expensive and frequently my skis were really difficult to ski on after a new grind. With this tool, I never go get grinds any more, my skis work really well, and I save a lot of money. I am really happy with it. I do like the coarse stone more than the medium, it does more work when needed.
Took a couple pairs of skis to get the hang of using this but once I did I'm happy with the results. I'm not trying to shave every tenth or hundredth, just want a ski that performs well. Definitely don't need to go beyond the medium grit stone unless you are removing a lot of material.
