Base Brush

The Toko Base Brush Copper is a durable brush for structuring and cleaning dirty bases. Run it from tip to tail after you scrape your wax so that your bases work more efficiently. Structuring your base prevents your skis from getting a suction-cup effect which can drastically slow you down.

Top of the Line Brushes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I recommend these for anyone serious about a good brushing. I have both a nylon and a copper. If buying your first brush, I would go with the Nylon/Copper mix and not worry about having multiple brushes.

Great brush that won't harm your base

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Have used this for years and bought another one. Wider surface area than Swix and won't harm your base. Easy enough to clean the wax out with a vacuum.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Really well made and ergonomic.Can't go wrong here.

Exactly what I needed

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This brush is easy to handle, perfect length and stiffness of the bristles. Recommend pairing this with Toko's nylon brush, and you'll be good to go.

Burly enough to tame my cowlick

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This brush is da bomb diggity. It is comfortable to hold, solid construction, and the bristles are the perfect stiffness. I have the full nylon brush and I use it to prep/clean my bases before tune/wax, as well as to brush after wax.

As others have said, you could probably get away with just the nylon brush, however I definitely wanted a bronze/copper/brass to assist in base cleaning. For this brush I went with the Swix Bronze All-Around (SWI0021), however the OneBallJay Brass brush (OBJ0057) is a great alternative as well.

If you plan on cleaning/tuning/waxing your own skis, this brush is a must!


Best Brush hands down

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you do your own ski or board tuning you need this. Trust me.

First time with Toko

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a good quality brush. I have waxed the whole families skis twice since I got this, and it along with a Toko nylon brush give me a beautiful finish every time.

Nylon Brush

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Needed a brush for finishing up my skis after a wax. The nylon brush is great and removes a good amount of wax. Comfortable in my hand and works really well.

Must Have!

    If you take the time to wax you MUST HAVE a brush. Like this one because you get 2 for 1 with the nylon and copper both on one brush. I use this to clean before I apply the wax and then again at the end.

    Completes the wax

      This is a good brush. The nylon really completes a fresh new wax job. It's not so big that you have to use to hands, but it is just big enough that you can if you really want to dig in to it. Dimensions measure 6x3x1 in.

      Buy if you race

        Toko brushes are the way to go. Brushing your skis provides a whole new world of speed and enjoyment to all levels of skiing. If you are a racer, be sure to get a metal brush, either copper or steel, for initial wax removal and structure detailing.


          Make sure you know what your doing before you tune nordic bases with this brush. The copper is the first brush you'd use after scraping, and you take off quite a bit of wax with it followed by nylon, and horsehair. Always run tip to tail with brushes, and never use any back and forth motion, as the pattern in your base can get damaged. Gets dirty fast, but you can beat it against the counter and it'll come clean. Essential for any wax buff. Another thought: two hands fit perfectly onto it, one right on top/behind another for really gettin into your brushing.

          To clean a brush what I do is run/scrape my metal scraper along it to get all the bits of wax out. Causes a dandruff cloud of wax so watch where you do it!

          Big difference

            My first year snowboarding, a buddy taught me to wax my own board--but he never used a brush, so I figured i didn't need one. Now, two years later, i decided to see if it would make a difference--and wow! I feel like a freaking moron for not using one all along.

            This brush is quite large, which makes it great for waxing my wide 153cm board. The bristles are a lot stiffer than the nylon ones i'd seen for sale at my local shop, which makes me more comfortable when I didn't scrape as well in an area.

            It is a brush

              It is a brush and it works like a brush.
