I have been working with Brian Holtham and PBHE for over 3 years. He is a very important person in my figure skating life. Every time I go to PBHE he’s always so nice to me and he always greets me with a smile. Brian doesn’t just help my skates, he motivates me to be the best that I can be. Without Brian I wouldn’t be the figure skater that I am today.
Throughout my competitive career I’ve relied on Brian to repair and maintain my skates at any given moment. The combination of ingenuity and passion for his work is in a league of it’s own. The custom technology he has built, to give the utmost care to the skater’s equipment is eye opening, and only the best. Most importantly, I’ve always felt that I was part of a family at PBHE. Brian understands how every skater is unique, and gives every ounce of effort to meet a skater’s needs. Since day one, the attention to detail that he has always given to my equipment goes a long way towards my success. Thank you for being a part of the team Brian!
Impeccable service…with a smile. I used to call Mr. Holtham the ‘Miracle Worker’. He always made my skates and blades feel so comfortable which made my edges responsive and effortless. Not only did I always get service with a smile but also a detailed explanation of the process which made me feel confident that my skates were in good hands. I also appreciated his knowledge about insoles, orthotics and physiology; All of which combine to give the best skating experience possible.
Brian took the time to educate me on my blades, their sharpening and boots, and with that I became so in tune with the very skates that let me do what I loved. Whether it was running to him (every few days) for adjustments or punching out new boots, he was always there for me and worked tirelessly until any issue was resolved. As skaters we often take for granted how important it is that our skates are an extension of our body until something goes wrong. For me, knowing Brian was always there to help and make sure everything was perfect, kept that fear at bay.
Getting expensive dance blades sharpened by Brian means that they last for many more years than if they are sharpened elsewhere. Also, once your skates have been sharpened by Brian, no other sharpening is ever good enough! His knowledge and craftsmanship is legendary and he’s always a pleasure to deal with. Thanks to Brian I’ve attained my senior silver level and it’s because I’ve had the right equipment.
PBHE spared no effort in making sure that I received the best in quality service, and worked tirelessly to solve any problems that I faced regarding equipment fit. I trust PBHE completely knowing that they are always willing to help in the pursuit of excellence.
Brian is the NASA scientist of skate sharpening! His attention to detail and highly detailed precision in restoring any blade to its factory specs is unparalleled.
