Skate Sharpening

Done by hand the right way—(no automatic machines here!) Custom cuts, Flat Bottom Cuts, recreational, figure skates….the best sharpeners anywhere !!

Consistency is the key to good skate sharpening. Skate blades which have been neglected or poorly maintained are harder to sharpen and don’t perform well on the ice. Clean strong edges improve control and a skaters confidence in the blades. If the blades are of poor quality steel or have been overheated by bad sharpening, the blade edges are considered to be weak. Weak edges are more prone to roll or snap off because they are brittle. Some sharpeners try to compensate this problem by sharpening with a deeper hollow, but this only compounds the problem. The deeper hollow gives the skater an edge, but the skate controls the skater and we all know the skater should be in control of their skates.
