DO MY NEW SKATES NEED SHARPENING? Absolutely, new skates out of the box must be sharpened. Skate manufacturers do not put a finished edge on new skates.

HOW OFTEN DO MY SKATES NEED SHARPENING? Under normal conditions, a skate sharpening for the serious hockey player should last for about three to five hours of ice time. Skating on outdoor ice only one time may require the skates to be sharpened before their next use. 
HOW CAN I TELL WHEN MY SKATES NEED SHARPENING?
When skates begin slipping on hard turns, pushing-off, or cross-overs, this is an indicator of dull skates. Visually inspect by looking down the length of the blade. If you see stripped edges, gouges, or dull looking (worn) edges it's time.
