    Is the person who initially sharpened them the same person who normally sharpens your skates? That can make a big difference, as well as the transition to a more forward pitch.

    Sounds like you have the discomfort thing is worked out, but you can always re-bake the skates. It won't ruin 'em.

    The initial sharpening was not done at the place where I normally get it done. Discomfort is gone but either these skates really pronounce the difference in my leg strengths or my weaker skate is funky. Will start with a sharpening and move on from there. In general I am pleased with the grafs. I am hoping my normal sharpener will make everything better.

    Is this the first time you are skating on a forward pitch skate? If so it will take a bit to get use too.

    Graf's are the best. Love my Grafs.
