The Process

At Blades Skate Shop all staff members have been trained in the Maximum Edge skate sharpening system. Maximum Edge uses a seven-step patented squaring and finishing process:


  • Machine Calibration
  • Blade Preparation 1
  • Machine Sharpening
  • Blade Preparation 2
  • Finishing Pass
  • Blade Calibration
  • Blade Finishing Process

Using this finely honed process you will receive the same consistent results from any of the members that many professional players are receiving from their equipment managers who have taken the Maximum Edge training program.

If you use a hair dryer to dry out your skates use the lowest heat setting available. High heat will cause the adhesives to soften and undermine the integrity of the boot. Specially designed dryers are now available that limit the amount of heat.
