I give it 3 stars soley in its looks. The package contained a thick book of other products made by swix, but did not contain any material on how to use the sharpener. Tried YouTube, that's was marginal help. Some instructions would be nice.

The scraper and the file are the only two useful pieces to this kit. I bought it hoping I could do everything with it but the wax sucked so I went and bought melting wax. The file works okay but you're better off getting a file for 15 dollars, a scaper and wax for 10 dollars.

Wax is wax, and Swix is the brand that is probably best known. The kit includes wax, a wax scraper, some polishing devices (think the green side of your kitchen sponge), a mediocre adjustable edge sharpener, and a relatively huge carrying bag.
This is NOT a professional tuning kit, but a stop-gap measure for buffing your edges and adding some wax when necessary. It is perfect for tune-ups, but not full tunes.
I wouldn't pay the MSRP for this item, but for the Sierra Trading Post price, I couldn't find nearly as good a deal on the included pieces I needed.
The bag is large enough to also hold a waxing iron, however, so that is convenient.
