Fred's Skate Sharpening is an independent service specializing in figure skate sharpening, blade mounting and analysis of skate-related problems. I am located in the Detroit Skating Club. World, Olympic and National Skaters and Champions and have depended on my services for predictable perfection.
Some of these competitors have included Tara Lipinski, Charlie White and Meryl Davis, Jeremy Abbott, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, Alyssa Czisny, Todd Eldridge, Shizuka Arakawa, Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto, Federica Faiella and Massimo Scali and many others over the years.
Though much an old world approach to sharpening, my feel for edges is a perfect balance between science and art.
Most work is done on an appointment basis, though walkups are never turned away when time permits. Click here to schedule an appointment.
