Check your edges before using the ProSharp HOME skate sharpener
It’s imperative that you check your skates edges before placing them into your ProSharp HOME. To do this, we suggest ensuring you have a BAT which is used to check skates edges are level. Why we suggest doing this before use is to determine the condition of your edges before they are sharpened. If the condition isn’t good, they may require a little more attention. Your ProSharp will perform 1 pass (or cycle) which is in other words the sharpening wheel going from left to right then right to left (if looking at it from the front). For a regular sharpen, we would recommend anywhere from 3-4 cycles. If you find your edges are uneven, we would recommend anywhere from 6-8 passes. Check your edges with the BAT after honing the blade to ensure they are level.
