I switched to Brian as my skate sharpener at a time when I was having frequent blade and boot problems. Brian immediately identified the issues I was having and helped take steps to remedy them and I rarely have had a problem since. In my years involved with skating I have never met anyone more knowledgeable about boots and blades and as enthusiastic to help every skater regardless of age or ability. Now, as I have retired from competitive skating and coach part time, my first recommendation is always Brian and PBHE when it comes to sharpening, mounting, boot fitting and any other consultation related to boots and blades. He is a true expert in his field and I am fortunate to have had his expertise in my skating career. I highly recommend Brian and PBHE!
