Tale of the Edgeless Horseman

Pictures from my new skate sharpener of SOMEONE ELSE'S SKATES.

Before Sharpening

After Sharpening

I mean how can you not feel something like that? Those blades had no inside edge at all! I don't know if the skater just rode her inside edges a lot, or had a bad sharpening.

You can test your blades at home with a straightedge or a quarter (although that takes a bit of an eye).

  1. Uneven edges are bad, m'kay? If you've got edges this uneven, either you're waiting *MUCH* too long to get your blades sharpened, or (more likely) the sharpener doesn't know/ care to do it right. Either behavior is harmful to your skating quality and should be corrected. :-(
