Skate Sharpening Chart

We offer several types of "cuts" for your skates. All options are the traditional Radius of Hollow (ROH) and are the most common.

Things to keep in mind when selecting your cut:

  • The sharper the cut, the deeper you will dig into the ice. This causes less glide and forces you to work harder. However, with doing a sharper cut, you will be able to dig in on turns and use your edges more.
  • The flatter the cut, the less deep you will dig in and get more glide. The more glide means more speed. The downfall is that your edges aren't as deep and edgework might be slightly different.
  • For lighter the person, a sharper cut might work better to help their edges dig in more. Viseversa for a heavier¬†person.
