I've tried most of the edge bevelers out there, even the stoopid Swix with wheels. After my first full tune with this tool (new bevels cut, three files, five stones, then ceramic) I'm very pleased to say SVST with SS plate is superior to them all in practical ways. It's longer than the Swix WC, so if you want to get longer stones and use fewer strokes you can. As I was cutting with files I thought something was wrong - "Where are the filings?" The notches on the deck actually work to catch them! Swix says the WC does this, but it doesn't. This is an awesome tool. As I acquire more SVST tools I'm coming to expect this from them.
SVST products are the best in the industry, and this edge beveler is no exception. Highly recommend it, whether you're tuning a few or a bunch of skis.
Good product, easy to use, durable. Everything you want in a side edge sharpening tool.
Don't waste your money with anything else. The SVST machined aluminum side bevels are bullet proof and will last a lifetime. The only thing better is the SVST solid stainless steel side bevels. Both will be the best side bevels you'll ever use.
Engineered well, works great, these will be the only tools I'll be using going forward...
I have been using SVST tools for years. You can't beat the price, quality and serivce. And, they're right here in Boise, Idaho!
As advertise. The stainless steel siding keeps the movement very smooth and consistent.
I love the SVST beveler + screw down clamp + secret sauce. I use the SVST ice file to sharpen dull edges, the moon stone to do some between day tunes, and a gummy stone to make things all smooth and beautiful. The secret sauce makes the file and stones run smoothly and almost never chatter, which makes for great looking edges. I use this combo on both snow boards and skis. PS...I hate the SVST beveler + spring clamp. It's fine when you're working on your workbench, with even footing and good balance, but sometimes you're on vacation and are doing your skis on a stair rail or something. If that spring clamp slips and you are a bit off balance, you have some razor sharp skis to contend with (as a large scar on my hand can prove). Long story short, buy the screw down file clamp. It's awesome and you it never lets you down.
used it last weekend and the great thing about it is the stainless steel base plate. it glides much smoother on the base than the all aluminium guides.
I've had a 3 degree beveler for decades, both as a racer and as a coach and now just to hold on for dear life when it's icy! I bought the planer and the 4 degree bevler jsut to augment the 3. I used it the other day on two pairs of Head GS'es, short and long, FIS illegal. What a grip! I was on watery hard snow - not desperate ice but on stuff that needed a good purchae. My skis ran like they were glued to a curved planet. The tools worked superbly and easily. Bad thing...you have to buyt the top pice with screw and rubber plate seperatly now. The sS&H is more then the parts. They should have used USPS instead of UPS. Great telcon with great service. Qiuickyly mailed and I was emailed about it. Wonderful service from SVST as always.
I have two S/S bevel guides and just added this side bevel guide in 4 degrees. I love the weight and ease of switching stones with this tool. I highly recommend it.
