Kuzmin™ 017 Plus (+) BladeWith the more aggressive edges’ geometry for more effective results.

For optimal structure at warmer temperatures, we have to employ a rougher surface. Plus provides the same random structure as Universal but the depth of the structure becomes deeper/coarser. From the aeration point of view, such pattern works very well. Most effective structure at +3 °C and warmer. During wet snow, you should also use a texture tool (riller), such as XRiller, for maximum glide. Even the steel scraping is much faster with this scraper.

Note. 017 Plus (+) Blade must be attached to Holder-017 Plus

The design is different in comparison with our early ski scrapers: All early ski scrapers have four edges; the Blade-017 has two edges.

There is a quite hard to get all four edges (Kuzmin™ 014) equally sharp, because of grinding wheel rotation and scraper’s geometry.

By the new geometry it is possible to grind both edges of Blade-017 fairly equal and with very similar burrs on all Blade-017.

Another important reason to go with Blade-017 design is to save on material (HSS). So far the ski scrapers are a disposable tool. However, with a new design we reduce weight of the non-refundable part of the Kuzmin™ 017 Ski Scraper – Blade. By this reason, we make the new ski scrapers even more environmental friendly.

014 vs O17 Models

  1. For the moment, the 017 line does not contain any “Minus” scrapers. Last two winters there is not much demand for Kuzmin™ 014 Minus. Winters become warmer and warmer;
  2. The Kuzmin™ 017 Plus is much more aggressive, more powerful and efficacious. Please, be careful. No need to press down the scraper! Additionally, the Kuzmin™ 017 Plus makes distinctly deeper random structures;
  3. The Kuzmin™ 017 Universal is more efficient. However, the SRS topography after treatment is very similar to 014 model;
