Another tip for sharpening: ALWAYS sharpen at a rink or trusted sports store, anywhere else and you can expect poor results. For some reason i sharpened mine at a Food Basics supermarket and the indent on the bottom of the blade was very deep. needless to say, i couldn;t stop properly
Yes, once you find a place to sharpen your skates stick to that place only. I used to get mine done wherever and would get random edges, kind of ruins your league games when your left skate has no edge. Very cool that you can get your skates sharpened at a supermarket. Love to see you try that down here in SoCal.
