Things That only Figure Skaters Understand #12

How you look when handing your boots over
 to a new sharpener for the very first time

How you feel when you think about
all the things that he can do 
wrong to your blades


  1. The bigger the sparks, the better the marks!

  2. Sharpener at rink shop once completely took the inside edge off my husband's blades. He pretty much did the splits when he got on the ice - and he can't do the splits. He had to crawl off. Sharpeners have been carefully vetted ever since.

    1. I just got some pictures today of skates with no inside edges. I don't know how the skater managed not to fall.
