Steel edges on skis and snowboards are made of a harder metal than files you get in a hardware store! You can't tune your edges with a file that is made with softer metal than your edges. It will wear down the file immediately. That's why we offer the Swix 8 inch medium coarse tuning file
is specifically designed for ski and snowboard tuning.
This traditional medium coarse 8 inch non chrome file is the perfect tuning file for starting the tune and taking down metal. The 6 inch file should be used for finish work. Great for recreational tuners.
