Designed to Perform

The World’s Best Blades

The Parabolic’s advanced tapered design narrows to the mid-section of the blade and returns to full width at the blade’s heel and toe — translating into less steel and a lighter blade overall. Since the Parabolic concentrates even more of the skater’s weight on the very center of the blade, it relies less on the ends of the blade. Therefore the heel and toe of the blade will typically see less wear than with standard blades. Blade maintenance is easy and there is no difference in sharpening between the Parabolic and traditional blades.

Skaters wearing Wilson & MK blades have won more medals at international skating events than all other blades combined. 3-time US National Champion Johnny Weir is a proud wearer of Riedell boots and John Wilson Gold Seal blades.

John Wilson: Coronation Ace Coronation Comet Coronation Dance Four Aces Gold Seal Pattern 99 Super Dance 99 Wilson Precision

Technology Gives the Competitive Edge MK blades are produced by highly skilled craftsmen using premium steel. To achieve the most optimum skating edge, the steel is scientifically hardened, then highly finished and sharpened. Experience the enhanced feel and unsurpassed performance that MK blades offer.

models available

MK Blades:

Longer Blade Life Because the Parabolic keeps the weight of the skater on the center of the blade, less of the blade surface is used. This improves not only stability, but also has benefits for blade sharpening and overall blade life. The narrow center allows the blade to be sharpened in fewer passes. Since fewer passes are required, the life of the blade will typically be longer than that of standard blades.

Gold Star MK Dance Phantom Professional Vision Vision Syncro

For best results, blades should be sharpened by an authorized John Wilson or MK dealer.

Master of Perfection For more than 300 years, John Wilson has been designing and manufacturing skate blades worthy of world champions. Through an unwavering commitment to research, design and innovative technology, John Wilson creates the most advanced blades using the highest steel quality. Every blade is laser cut and precision hardened to create the very finest blade available.
