Choose a Specialty radius if you are particular about your radius. If you don't know what radius your skate blades are then the Standard 1/2" ROH is your best bet.
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.

The Blade Barber is fantastic! It does a perfect job on my blades - better than most shops and rinks you go to where the 'kid' is working. The instructional video is well worth the watch!

I have been using the 1/2" ROH for about a month now. It works great. Its really hard to get skates sharpened in Wellington New Zealand. We have to ship our blades to Auckland. Now I can do them anytime. The only problem is that my mates keep wanting to use it. I suspect Blade Barber will have quite a following from down here! Keep up the great work.
