  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Why on earth would anyone use the BD tool (or any other). I don't have to align things 2mm to one side or the other for cutting, just mash it against the edge, and slide your way to a set of perfectly cut skins.

1st time and perfect

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The idea of cutting skins never appealed to me. Imagine screwing it up?

After watching the videos on using this tool, I put it to the test.

Perfect cut, easy to use and no blood! Have at it!

Best Skin Cutting Tool Ever!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After working in shops for years and cutting a ton of skis, I know to just throw BD's cutting tool in the garbage and to hold onto any of these for dear life. They make the cutting so much easier!

A greater tool than I

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is the best trim tool out there, by far. It's ergonomic, has bi-directional blades, and has a perfect offset to leave your edges exposed. Gone are the days of nudging your skins over as you trim them, trying to make sure everything is lined up perfectly. Just keep this bad boy pressed against your edges and VOILA you are now the Michelangelo of skin trimming.

Worked Great!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Used it to trim some Black Diamond skins and it cut great. Very sharp and cut the right amount "in" on the ski. I've never put skins on skis but the process was very easy with the use of this tool.

Don't cut a skin without it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was skeptical at first to use the tool because I thought it was going to take too much material off but it work perfectly. If you left any additional skin it would be extremely difficult to line the skin back up when you try to put it on. The G3 tool is excellent.

Worth it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I picked up this tool when I bought some Black Diamond skins based on reviews and I am happy I did. This tool takes a lot of guess work out of things, cuts smoothly and reliably, and the finished product was great. I had to cut two sets of skins in a short period of time and this tool made it a lot more tolerable job without question.

The only time I didn't use it was to cut the skins to length and to make the angle cuts on the tip after attaching the tip clip. I used the more straightforward BD tool for this.

Great Tool

    I used this to trim my first pair of skins this weekend. It really couldn't be any easier. No need to line up 1 edge and then move the skin around. I just centered my skins and the built in offset trimmed the perfect amount off of the skin so the ski edge was exposed. Totally worth the $5.

    Awesome Trimmin Tool

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This tool is a lifesaver. As other reviews have mentioned, the built-in offset for edges is very convenient and makes the cutting process much easier. I mos def recommend this tool to anyone.

    10X better than Black Diamond trim tool!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    For whatever reason, this trim tool is 10 X better than the Black Diamond one that comes with their skins. This tool easily instructs you on how to place the tool against the base of your ski and is dialed in to trim the skin a few millimeters inside your edge. This way you have your edges when needed on the skin up.

    I attached a photo so you can see the amount it cuts and exposes the edge.

    10X better than Black Diamond trim tool!

    Right tool for the job

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This little guy makes trimming your skins quick and easy. Much easier to use that the trim tool included with BD skins, and well worth the hefty price tag...

    I've heard rumor that this is only good for one pair of skins before it dulls, but I've used mine for two sets of skins and I didn't notice any dulling issues - just clear out the scraps and glue gunk after each pass

    great tool

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I just used this to trim my first set of skins (BD Mohairs) and they worked great and made life a lot easier. A good tip that helped me (courtesy of :

    Take a short strip of the wax paper that comes attached to your skins when you buy them, and place this along the edges of the skins where you're going to trim. This makes the trimming even easier because you're no longer fighting against the glue.

    Greatest invention

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I watched my friends mess up their skins as they tried to figure out how to use the BD trim tool. I got some G3 skins and we were all impressed with this tool. Mine is dull because it's trimmed 3 or 4 pair of skins so far.

    A great little tool

      A great tool to get the perfect trim on a pair of skis. Super easy to use and leaves the proper amount of edge exposed. No wasting time with BD's templates and silly blade. Just put the skin on the ski and trim.
