Yes, A good edge kit will help you, but even $35 (+8.00 shiping???) is a lot. What angles do you plan on using? The One Ball Jay Edge Kit sells for $18.00 (ships free) and includes dual angle sharpening tool, specialized edge file, ceramic stone, High Performance wax. One Ball makes a great Magnetraction Edge tool as well which fits much better into wavy edge boards.

Well, now that you own it, it's a moot question.

The thing I don't like about a lot of the pocket file guides is that you can't fit a regular-size file in because of their length and you can't fit a regular diamond stone in because of their thickness.

Generally you don't use a file anywhere near as much as you use a diamond stone. You generally use a file once or twice to set your angles and then various grit diamond stones to keep those angles sharp throughout the season. You can kinda wedge another file in there if you need to, but it's a PITA to do that all the time with diamond stones.

I've got a couple of those pocket bevel things, don't think I paid more than $12 for one.

i got it from a burton store here in Mass so did not pay shipping.

I was wondering if the ceramic stone can deburr the edges and sharpening them and use the file just when i have deeper cut on the edges.

I guess i can buy separately if i really need but if i can do without it i wouldn't mind save some money.

[QUOTE=Wiredsport;318172]Yes, What angles do you plan on using?

I have the blunt and i think it comes with 1 degree bevel on the base and 89 degree on the side edge. i do mostly free riding but i try to go to the park to learn some tricks.
is there way i can check for sure the specification of my board?

Well, a fixed angle does a much better job and the diamond stones are what you'll use the most to get good results. You'll need to replace them and the file soon enough. Hopefully, you can get Burton replacements in a store near you for cheap because "normal" ones don't fit.

Whatever, you've already bought it. I couldn't justify that price for that and I told you why.
