I don't have any problems skating backwards or pivoting. I like my skates done very sharp and I notice sometimes I don't get them like that. I can't seem to find a place in Edmonton to do my skates consistently well but I live with it.
I also use one of those things that helps with edges on your skates. It's basically like two stones split apart and the blade goes in the middle, you just run it down the blade. I completely forget what it's called but I have heard it's not good for the blade. Can anyone confirm this if they know what I'm talking about?
