Tip: How often should I sharpen my skates?
It depends how often and hard you skate. You are often the best judge, try and remember that feel of a freshly sharpened skate and when that feeling goes then it is time to be sharpened. The rule of thumb is every 20 hours or at least every 2 months. Make sure you take it to someone who knows how to sharpen figure skating blades and always remember to wear your hard guards whenever you are off the ice!
