Sidecut Diamond Guide
Sidecut Diamond Guide 1 1
Pricey but well made and works efficiently The guide should be reviewed with the diamond discs as neither can be used on its own. The concept is good as the disc can be rotated to ensure the whole abrasive surface is used evenly, unlike rival products with an an oblong diamond file which only wears at the ends because of the waist and curvature of the ski edge in the vertical plane. However the abrasive does wear out and replacement stick on pads are expensive - I use silicon carbide paper between the ski and the discs which are easy to cut out, cheap and disposable. The device is not designed to file the ski bottom nor can the angle be adjusted, but the guide is well machined and does not mark the ski base. 23 April 2013

This Diamond Guide has a stainless steel plate which gives it a heavier weight, increased longevity, a nicer glide and feel on the base.Highly sought after because you can file with your File Guide, set it down and then work with you Diamond Guide. This means there is no need to change the File for the Diamond Stone, therefore you save time and can dedicate your Diamond Guides for sharpening/polishing AND use oil or water on them without the need to clean the File Guide each time you exchange the file for a stone. The Discs last longer then tradional rectangular Diamond Stones because you can easily spin the Disc, thereby using every bit of the Diamond surface.
Diamond Discs NOT included, so please dont forget to order your Diamond Discs.
