Since 1978, Geppetto’s Skate Shop and Mr. Edge have been serving the needs of skaters throughout the Midwest. Mr. Edge’s experience and knowledge have made him one of the world’s leading authorities on boots, blades, and sharpening. His current book, “Anatomy of a Figure Skating Injury” explains and provides solutions to the common blade, boot, and sharpening problems. The book also explains many of the common injuries to the ankle, foot, hips, knees, and lower back that competitive skaters are prone to throughout their career and how they can be reduced or avoided altogether. The book is currently undergoing some revisions and when ready will be released under a new cover and title.
