A skate sharpener is basic standard equipment in every ice rink. The hollow of the blade enables skaters to execute movements on ice. The depth of the hollow depends on the kind of blade (ice hockey, figure skating, public skating), the hardness of the ice, the weight and the technique of the user. New skating boots needs to be hollow grinded. Used blades loose sharp and evenness of edges by the time. They have to be sharpened regularly. Sharpening machines are designed to provide sharp and even edges and the correct depth of hollow.
