What depth should I sharpen my skates?

When it comes to skate sharpening Fredericton sportcare has you covered and the depth at which skates should be sharpened depends on the preference of the individual skater. Generally speaking, a depth of 3/8” is recommended for recreational skaters, while a depth of 1/2” is more appropriate for competitive skaters. These depths can vary depending on how often the skates are used and other factors, so it’s important to consult with a professional skate sharpener to determine what depth is best for you.

What depth should I sharpen my skates?

Players used to request a high, pointy cut; now they’re more likely to get one that’s much flatter. Montreal Jesperi Kotkaniemi skates on a 11/16ths inch cut. NHL refs prefer skaters with a smooth glide, so they usually sharpen their blades at around an inch.
