How sharp is a hockey skate with a good fresh frind that has had the burr honed? You can cut a sheet of paper just like that demonstrated with a sharp knife...

the edge being one sided isnt so sharp that simple pressure will cause a severe cut like a razor but add a little slide to that pressure and its a cut that you may not even feel.

Mckinley HS in Buffalo NY had a player checked from behind who then went several feet head first into the boards. Broke his neck and died from the injury. Around 1983-84? Explorer Hockey League...
