The main thing using these tools is technique.

If you're using a rock, make sure it is FLAT and NEVER slips directly on one of the skate edges. These rocks are meant to file out the outer part of the metal, bringing in the concave just barely shorter enough to make a difference.
Once the rock slips and grinds that edge out, well you ****ed up.

Some blades are still way too dull for a rock to do anything sometimes.
