I'll scrape them up a but on the ice and by the end of the first period they're more or less fine. I've experimented with larger and shallower hollows. Going shallower just feels like I'm skating on butter and the sharpen doesn't last as long and obviously going deeper just makes me scenario worse. Unless you have an alternative to my situation, I don't think "you're at the wrong hollow" is necessarily correct in all situations. (though it's probably still a pretty common solution) Whilst definitely subscribing to the “you’re at the wrong hollow if you rub your blades on the doorway after a sharpening”, I get that sometimes, there is that sweet spot that can only be achieved by that method. Sometimes it is part of ritual and has superstitious implications. It’s just like me with my new dietary restrictions- mashed potatoes are going to be better for me, but I just plain DETEST mashed potatoes. I am trying to choke them down, but it is beyond difficult. I won’t judge you on your post sharpenings if you don’t judge me on my outright HATRED of mashed potatoes. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
