Welcome! We are both former Professional Figures Skaters. We met while touring with Walt Disney’s World on Ice in 1992. In the fall of 1994 we retired from show skating to begin coaching. We made a great team and enjoyed working together. For 10 years, we coached skating full time, when not on the ice we were busy selling figure skates. Our students ranged from recreational to competitive skaters. Our resume included Jr. National and Eastern Sectionals competitors. In 2004, our daughter Hannah was born as was Sharperedgeskates.com. With the internet growing, we soon realized we could sell skates online and be home with the kids.
Jonathan English was born in the Northeast of England; he lived and skated in the UK until he joined Disney on Ice in 1990. Jonathan worked in the skating rink growing up and has many years of knowledge with sharpening and mounting skates. Many of our customers are National, World and Olympic Competitors from the past and present.
Sheila English is from Gloucester Massachusetts, and grew up skating and competing on the North Shore and Boston Area. She assists her husband in running the business, answering emails and running the web store.
We are located just north of Boston in Peabody Massachusetts. Our shop is open by appointment only because we believe you should have individual attention when being fitted for a new pair of skates. You should not have to wait hours and see different people. Jonathan is the only person that does the sharpening and fittings. You will only get the best. We strive for exceptional customer service and promise to work with you to choose the right skating equipment for you.
