Has anyone tried the ”flat bottom V" cut? Are there any places around socal that can sharpen like this? My buddy in Texas said I should try it, but I had to look it up to see what it was. He said he likes it. Just curious, and wanted some more opinions.

No where in SoCal as far as I know unless you know a pro trainer.

I know people will talk crap but the last time I got a sharpen at Hockey Giant, it was the best sharpening I had ever gotten on my skates. I should have asked for the guy's name. It was just a regular cut. Whatever that means.

I just got a 3/4" hollow. I had a 5/8th before, but my right skate wasn't gliding at all. I can't hockey stop either, but I've only been on ice maybe 5-6 times in the past few months.

Muddfisher told me about someone who does it in Anaheim, I believe.... I am going to pm him and find out the place again. I think it's a place that does mostly figure skating. I can't remember the name. U.S. something-or-other...

I got the Flat bottom V cut in Anaheim on broadway west of AnaheimIce at USAskates. Their website is Figure skates, hockey jerseys, ice skates, figure skate blades, hockey socks, hockey skates, roller skates and much more! USASKATES - We cater to ice skaters with a large selection of ice skates, figure skates, hockey jerseys, hockey socks, hockey sk
Located between Harbor and AnaheimIce on 411 West Broadway, Anaheim, CA - (714) 999-1400.
I have noticed that my edge control is stronger with the V-cut and the glide is much smoother.
