These quality files are hard chromed for longer life and better glide. They are 2nd cut files with 18 teeth/cm, and are well suited for all-around edge filing. With a Rockwell hardness of 67 they easily cut through edge material. Ski edges have a hardness of around 48, a file from your local hardware store will likely have a hardness of around 50. We offer them in 6, 8 and 10-inch lengths. If you want to keep it simple just get an 8-inch and you'll be covered. If you're looking for a slightly more aggressive file, take a look at the Viiala Hard Chrome 1st cut files.

Ex ski shop guy, have been tuning ski's for 30 years. This is the sharpest file I have ever used. 8 inch good all around size. Don't see a need first cut file
Really nice file for tuning the edges on my skis. Very happy with this purchase! Product arrived quickly and exactly as advertised.
Sharp and Economical. Makes edge tuning a breeze. 5 passes and sharp
Very sharp, does a great job on my edges.
Great file, very good quality
I'm an ex-racer that has always taken the utmost pride in my hand tuning techniques. Until now, I've always used a 'run of the mill' (pardon the intended pun) bastard file from the hardware store. I cannot believe how far superior this higher end file is, it's ridiculous. There's 35 years of my life I'll never get back..... Don't waste your life away, spend a few extra bucks and buy this file!!!
Before we got this file we had the "other one," the one you find in every big box and hardware store in the country and our tool box just snickered at us. Well. We got this file and reverently laid it in the top drawer. And we swear. As we left the shop our toolbox imperceptibly smiled and raised a finger to the brim of its fedora.
