The edges can be functionally blunted with the Wax'n Board edge eraser or sharpening eraser. This can influence the properties of skis and snowboards.
An edging eraser belongs in your basic package of wax tools. On the one hand you can remove the rust from the steel edges, on the other hand you also make them slightly less aggressive so that they are less likely to bite at the front, which you will certainly have noticed before in hard and aggressive snow.
The extreme sharpness goes away from the edge when the sharpening eraser is passed over the edge, which you do after filing your edges. It is important to know that the edge does not immediately become blunt and therefore still provides the grip necessary when cutting corners. By slightly blunting the ski edge or snowboard edge, your material becomes a little calmer.
Tip! You don't have to cut off the entire edge, just the front 20-30 cm is sufficient, because that's where you cut the snow when cornering.
