For the ultimate performance on the Ice, count on Mitchel & King Blades. MK Blades are manufactured in Sheffield, England, using the finest quality steel and the latest Laser Technology process to give sharper edges and world class precision and uniformity. Each blade is scientifically hardened for the optimum skating edge and precision sharpened providing unparalleled feel on the ice. MK uses state of the art technology to ensure each blade is built to the highest standards.
The Tapered Hollow Ground is for Advanced Blades where the blade is thicker at the rake of the blade and is thinned consistently down the length of the blade to the tail. Tapering of the blade results in reduced blade resistance when skating in a forward direction. These Blades are also hide Hollow Ground, which is the removal of steel at the factory to reduce blade weight but more importantly provide more defined edges and increased Angle to the Ice for tighter turns.
The Rake is Cross Cut which is multi-directional milling and provides added lateral stability when performing jumps. The more dominate the picks the greater the potential for jumping elevation.
