How to Measure a Figure Skate Blade

How to Measure a Figure Skate Blade



Measuring the length of a figure skate blade is even easier than it sounds - it doesn't require a ruler, a tape measure or even a level surface.  When talking about the length of the blade, it's not the actual blade length - from heel to toe pick - that's being referred to; it's the length of measurement from the tip of the toe plate to the end of the heel plate.  To make it easy, skate blade manufacturers stamp the length of the blade in a number of possible places.  All that is needed is to find the imprint.  The picture below can show you some typical places to look.
