For the Seattle area Ice skaters here where you go for trusted ice sharpenings? I use to get mine sharpened at Highland Ice Arena and they were EXPERTS with a capital E. I swear some of those guys back than could do it for an NHL team.

Now I have gone to all the usual places, Hockey Wolf, Pure Hockey, Play it Again Sports, and Kraken Ice Arena. The cuts only last maybe 3 skates at the most and some are complete butcher jobs.

I am thinking of getting a Sparx Machine but that costs about 800 bucks.

Its drives me nuts to get Russian Roulette ice sharpens.

Here is what reddit has to say about it. I agree completely.

Crickets!!!!

The Ice sharpening saga continues. Pure hockey nailed it with my CCM skate sharpen at .5 inch than a week later messes up my Bauer skates at same radius. It feels like the entire profile of the Bauer skates has changed from neutral to forward pitch. They use the Sparx machine. Driving me nut getting a consistent cut.
