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.

Just further to earlier review - it's a review of the 6" file. And the 2nd cut is the universal file I find for all my tuning needs.
Great file. Maybe a bit on the small side (4 star), but for the price (relative to the one the next size up), it's a great deal (hence 5 stars)as it should last almost as long for tuning. And the Chrome makes it last much longer than a regular (non-chrome) file; probably twice as long in my experience.
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
