bildeer Posted August 26, 2019 Share Posted August 26, 2019 Hello all, I recently had my mother take my skates to a shop that I had been patronizing for about seven years, and my skates have a black steel coating on them (graf) while I usually do not get them sharpened there, but as the place down the street from the store was closed, my mother took them to the shop in question where they proceeded to side hone the skates, thus removing the coating from the blades (you are not supposed to side hone black steel). When we called the owner of the shop and asked him why he side honed the skates, he said that it was because he felt that using the suggested method of using a piece of leather was insufficient. Naturally I am quite a bit upset that he would do that at the expense of my skate blades that now look as if they have been put through the garbage disposal. So my question to you all is whether my frustration is justified or if I am just off of my rocker. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
