Check the sharpening
Our Blade Edge Checker (BEC) is a tool for checking the sharpening. It is a fast and accurate system to control whether a sharpening is centered underneath the skate blade (which is very important).
Place the black part pressed down on the skate blade. Put the gray part onto the blade near the black part. Use a finger to flip the gray part slightly so that it comes into oscillation. Read the result when the oscillation has stopped. If the sharpening is centered, then the upper edge of the gray part will be in line with the center line of the black part. The lines at the outer edges mark 1° to 5° angle with the center line.
Important! Use a whetstone on the skate blade before you use the BEC. Otherwise the measurement can be skewed.
