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!
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.
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.
