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 professionally trained to sharpen skates. Shortly thereafter, 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! 6 years later, Tydan Blades have become one of the best quality, high performance replacement blades on the market, used by professionals, junior and minor hockey players all over the world!
I'm very impressed! I've noticed more confidence in my edges and the retention of the sharpness. Very happy! I suggest trying them out!
— Ryan Ellis, Nashville Predators
Your custom profiled blades have really made a difference in my acceleration and turning!
— Sam Gagner, Edmonton Oilers
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!
— Wally Tatomir, Retired NHL Equipment Manager, Blade Expert
The Pittsburgh Penguins are using them. Most guys, anyway. Same with the Nashville Predators. Auston Matthews of the Toronto Maple Leafs has some. More than 150 players have been outfitted with Tydan Performance blades.
