The Skate Sharpener is Joe Brady. He has been a figure skater and
instructor for over 45 years. He is experienced in both freestyle and dance.
Over the years he has had his skates sharpened many times,
sometimes good, many times bad.
In 2003, after years of mediocre and sometimes
distructive sharpening by others, he purchased a
small table top sharpening machine and learned
to sharpen his skates himself. Soon he was sharpening for other skaters.
Today, he is one of the few sharpeners in the area specializing in the custom sharpening of figure skates. His clients include coaches, competitive and testing skaters as well as recreational skaters and a past Olympic competitor and World Professional Champian.
