Lets keep it simple.
Hollow Grind is the degree of sharpening that is cut into the width of a 3mm skate blade. Hollow is based on diameter of a ONE INCH CIRCLE.
Smaller the circle, deeper the hollow cut.
ex: "3/8 hollow"
Larger the circle, the flatter the hollow cut.
ex: "5/8 hollow"
with other hollows in and between.
The portion of skate blade (the pivot point) that actually contacts ice. Pivot points can be altered to be made longer
(11 Ft RADIUS) or shorter (7 Ft RADIUS).

You'll skate with more confidence, cut stronger and with less effort. And our sharpening will hold 3 times as long as anything else.
HOCKEY IS 100% BLADE TRANSITION.
A puck gets turned over at center ice, you need to change direction FAST! You need BETTER blade pivot point positioning and you need LESS of it.
The next time you hear a rookie with a skate machine
(who has never even played the game)
says you need a 13 FOOT RADIUS, think again.....
Longer contact points restrict mobility
and do not make you faster. Don't be misled.
