Good Lower End Edger
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've been tuning my own skis since 7 and have worked with World Cup Techs so I've seen the entire gamut of side and base edge bevelers and guides. The Swix North Pocket Edge Sharpener does add a super simple option to this category with the ability to switch between side and base edge beveling/sharpening and has a few degree options with one plastic piece. The file bit that come with it is pretty good as well as it is on the moderate side of aggressive so it'll do the job while not taking as much material off the edge. I did find the plastic mold a bit flimsy for its intended use and the guide would let the bit go when I would be pressing hard. A decent simple option to help keep your edges sharp and beveled close to correct.
