Pomoca Cutter

Brand: Pomoca

Availability: Out Of Stock

While this cutter is about 5 times more expensive than the letter-opener variety, it makes trimming skins about 100 times easier. If you value your time and the quality of your cut, the math works out in your favor. Stick your untrimmed skins on your skis and run the trimming tool down the edges. Then store it somewhere you will remember for next time. Finally, go ski.

Maybe I'm a biased reviewer since I've used the basic "letter opener" trim tool that comes with other skins for nearly two decades now.
And I've generally been perfectly happy with that.
Except for tricky retrimming jobs where only a few mm are being removed from each side.
And even trickier when the laminate for those jobs is rather soft.

I thought this far more elaborate tool would be better for such tricky jobs but ... I had my first try with it for that application and, eh, ended up going back to the tried & true letter opener.
I see how in some straightforward situations this tool might be better, but so far I'm just not convinced that it's noticeably better overall than the much-derided freebie semi-disposable versions.

Question from Steve
 
is the blade offset so when you trim them the ski edge is showing?

Hi Steve, yes. It reveals about 2mm of edge without having to move the skins around from side to side. Just center the skins and cut.

I am a detail-oriented (polite way of saying anal-retentive) person by nature and this thing turns skin trimming from a time consuming and frustrating experience into a quick and painless one. I don't think I will ever trim skins again without something like this.

The only thing that surprised me when I got one was how big it was. I was expecting something not much bigger than a razor blade, but it is actually about the size of a fist. The larger size makes it easy to hold when you are trimming.
