As with any other pair of hockey skates, we recommend you take your Flare Skate Blades to a reputable sporting goods shop and have them sharpened by a skilled and experienced technician.
Flare Skate Blades must be sharpened prior to first use. While we recommend using our stock profile, Flare Blades can be profiled, please see here for more info on profiling
Because the Flare Blade is wider where it meets the ice, Flare users are required to adjust their sharpening hollow.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FOLLOWING IS A GUIDE
✓ Know that the centre is the same as with traditional blades.
✓ Follow Flare's suggested Hollow Conversion Chart to adjust your traditional Hollow to the Flare Hollow Equivalent.
✓ Cross-grinding and radiusing / profiling is the same as with traditional blades.
✓ Hold the honing stone parallel (flat) to the flared (angled) part of the blade only. Using the honing stone any other way will dull your blade.
✓ For best results, we strongly recommend using a modified quick square to ensure your Flare edges are now level.
