Skate Sharpening and Services

Skate Sharpening

At the Ice Barn we offer two different styles of skate sharpening, thanks to our Blackstone Machine. The traditional Radius of Hollow (ROH) and the newer Flat Bottom V (FBV). Price for single ROH Sharpenings are $10 and FVB Sharpenings are $12.

We offer all ROH Hollows from 1&1/2 to 5/16. We offer FBV Hollows 95/50, 90/1, 100/50, and 100/75

Skate Sharpening Cards

We are excited to announce our skate sharpening card program. You will be able to purchase ten skate sharpenings for $100 and receive the eleventh sharpening for free. We will keep track of all of the cards and sharpenings so you do not have to. We will also have your skate, desired hollow, and contact information on the card. If there are any urgent repairs that need to be done to the skate(s) we will do so and you can settle any repair costs before you purchase your next sharpening card. There will be a nine-month expiration on all cards. We recommend that you get your skates sharpened every eight to twelve hours on the ice. The skate sharpening card can only be used for one pair of skates. You cannot have a "family" skate sharpening card.
