Providing fast and easy sharpening for on-the-go ice climbers.

Why send your dull ice screws to some company for a good sharpening when the Petzl Lim'Ice lets you quickly do it yourself and get back to the ice world? All you have to do is stick your ice screw through both sharpening guides and slide the sharpener across the screw, and voilà, your screw is shiny new and ready to work in the same way it did when you first got it.

Doesn't match Petzl's grind

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

Notice that all of the other reviews are for sharpening other manufacturer's screws. Contrary to the product specifications, this sharpener does not match the grind of Petzl's latest generation screws. The angle is tens of degrees off. What good is it to have a more aggressive modern grind if your sharpener grinds your teeth back to a previous generation profile? Falsely advertised and unacceptable service from a company that usually turns out great gear.

Works like a charm

I've used it several times

As many others will tell you, the BD screw profile is different, but with a little more commitment, they are sharp as new. The one I received was defective (malformed shape), but I called Petzl, sent it in, and they sent me a replacement.

Works well!

I've used it several times

Sharpened several BD turbo express screws. Since it's a different profile from the BD screws, it took a while to get them sharpened initially, but after having them re-profiled, they are fast and easy now. Makes sharpening quicker and easier. Great tool!
