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.

Easy to use

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

I have never trimmed a pair of skins before and this was super simple and provided a nice clean custom fit.

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!

Great tool but...

Buy a few of these if youre gonna trim multiple pairs of skins, it dulls pretty quick, but they work great!!

Right tool for the job

  • Gender: Male
  • 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

Super easy trimming

Shave those things to just the right fit, this does it every bit.

Best Trim Tool Ever!

I just got this to cut my BD skins. This thing basically does all of the work for you and is way better than the trim tool that comes with the BD skins. Definitely worth the 4 dollars.

great tool

  • Gender: Male
  • 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 http://www.wildsnow.com/4724/climbing-skin-cutters-review/) :

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

  • Gender: Male
  • 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.

5 5

So easy!

Eliminates the need to reposition skin to trim the other edge. Not sure how others have had problems. Make sure to trim from tip to tail or you will be fighting the entire cut. Used this tool for my first time cutting my own skins. Worked great on the BD Ascension STS. Well worth the $4.
P.S. G3 also has a great Twin tip Connector Kit that is compatible with the BD STS skin.

G3 Trim Tool

Great tool, sure makes trimming your skins much easier...A few touch ups after..and you are good to go!

Easy and Accurate!

Trimming my new Alpinist skins was unbelievably easy with the trimmer. It left enough space for the big edges of my pow skis, and cut through like warm butter.

I highly recommend this trimmer.

The only way to cut skins

Best 4 bucks i have ever spent! Rather than using the stupid envelope cutter that comes with every other skin, this thing totally rocks and makes my life better.
