Swix’s Diamond Stone is good for polishing edges and removing burrs from rocks or aggressive filing. Less suitably used on finger nails and woodshop projects, this Diamond Stone is perfectly tuned for making sharp ski edges even sharper. Eliminate burrs and make your skis slice through snow like a knife through butter. This a medium grit stone which is a good for backcountry skiing.

by Jonathan S (downright abused product)
If all your ski mountaineering takes place entirely on snow, then you don't need a diamond stone.
However, if your skiing surfaces include occasional interludes of rocks and other non-snow surfaces, this diamond stone is an absolute must for your tuning kit.
Or even if you don't have a tuning kit, this diamond stone will still be hugely helpful all by itself in removing overhanging burrs caused by close encounters of the rock kind.
If you do have a tuning kit, or at least have the ability to sharpen your edges with a metal file, you'll still want to use a diamond stone first to spare excessive wear on your metal file from attempting to remove burrs, plus rock hits can often case harden a metal edge: if your file is suddenly skipping over a section of the metal edge without sharpening it, a few passes back and forth with the diamond stone will magically remove that case hardening effect.
