About ice skate sharpening with Sparx

Considered accurate and fool-proof, the Sparx Sharpener Pro was designed to produce perfect blades and correct inaccurate blades. The Sparx Sharpener is a unique 2-in-1 system that includes both the standard Sparx Sharpener Base and the heavy duty metal and glass Sparx Sharpener Pro Base. This combination allowed Circuit Cycle to operate, what traditionally is a messy process to, a clean ice skate sharpening operation. “When we first opened in 2016, I looked at bringing ice skate sharpening to Millet, but the cost and maintenance was prohibited for us at the time,” stated Hahn.

In December of 2020 we introduced ice skate sharpening as a service, by offering free ice skate sharpening for four weeks. “The response was very good” stated Hahn. A local Millet couple Ida and Rob Howe, of Millet, Alberta and a Leduc company Petra Holdings Ltd., sponsored the introductory offer. “We are very appreciative of their support in making this service in Millet possible.” said Hahn.
