DLC was originally developed by the aerospace industry for exceptionally low friction and extreme hardness. We tailored it for use on hockey skate blades. Using leading edge technology to apply the coating, resulting in blades that offer a combination of unprecedented edge retention and glide.
Profiling is a proven method, that allows skaters to select exactly how much blade is in contact with the ice.
More blade = faster speeds & more stability.
Less blade = easier pivots, turns, and agility.

Tydan Blades is the only place I will take my skates. Jim and his staff do a tremendous job making sure my skates are perfect every time. I send all my students from beginners up to the NHL players to see Jim, and every single person comes back extremely pleased. If you want better glide, the ability to turn on a dime and to always feel in control of your blades...you need to go to Tydan Blades.

I have never had an issue with Tydan Blades since we have started using them! They never break and hold an edge longer than anything I've seen! The customer service is top notch as well!
Kasey LaMore, Equipment Manager, Hamilton Bulldogs OHL
Tydan Blades are amazing to sharpen...it seems like they hold the edge forever! We haven't had any break and they have an incredibly quick turnaround time! I have had multiple former players request Tydan Blades from me to use with their current teams! Thanks to Tydan for a great product!
Tydan Specialty Blades Inc. was founded in 1996 by Jim, who specializes in the manufacturing of industrial blades. The Tydan Performance Blades Skate Shop was born in July of 2012, when Jim & his son Tyler were trained to use the MAXIMUM EDGE skate sharpening process. Shortly there after, Jim & Tyler began dealing with replacement blades, but were never completely satisfied with the quality or performance. They decided to take matters into their own hands and created the first prototype of Tydan Blades! 5 years later, Tydan Blades are one of the best quality, high performance replacement blades on the market, used by professionals, junior and minor hockey players all over the world!
