A great way to sharpen your skates is to use an Ice Skate Sharpening Stone. Sharpening stones are extremely popular in sharpening knives, and the same principles hold when sharpening skates.
Benefits include easy transportation, convenience, and affordable price. It’s quite similar to the skate blade sharpener, yet it requires more skill to use. Also, sharpening with a stone has a more exciting feel to it.
