This is the handiest tool ever for hockey players and skaters of any type. It fits into your pocket so easily you dont even know it's there. The surprising thing is that you get a top quality sharpening tool that's as good as any drop it off sharpening shop - really. Get two as everyone will want to use yours and eventually you will " lose" yours. Coaches throw 3 or 4 of them into the team hockey bag for a fast tune up. Highly Recommended.
Blade Barber is a great sharpener! The tool will do as advertised and sharpen your skates as well as a machine. Follow the video before you try to use it. Apply light pressure and feel it glide down the blade. Make sure to knock out shavings between passes. The customer service is also top notch with these guys. They will help you with any problem and try their best to make sure you have a great experience. Thanks Tim Maxwell for the help and the awesome product. I will be back.
My son and I have been using this device for a few months now and I really like how it works and the sharpen that you get from it. It did take a few times to feel comfortable using it. My son keeps it in his hockey bag and has used it a couple of times now when he has lost an edge on his skates. He really likes it. Great tool for a quick fix.
