The Step Blacksteel replacement blade features a coated layer of carbon nanoparticles to create an incredibily fine, hard edge for players all around the world. To enhance glide quality, Step Skates heavily polished the black steel to give it a mirror finish. With the use of diamond-like carbon particles, Step has engineered its Blacksteel to reduce friction with water molecules to result in a much harder surface. The carbon-coated blade is designed to withstand high impact and constructed to last longer, all while offering a great look.
The Blacksteel fits perfectly with Bauer's TUUK Lightspeed Edge holder. The superior hardness of the blade, along with an increases blade height, gives the player more control as it lets you dig deeper into the ice, providing you a boost in confidence and precision when you turn and stop.
Step has exclusively developed a Grip Claw system for their products and is featured on the Blacksteel itself. This system eliminates movement between the front of the blade and the holder, allowing you to perform at your peak. The blade is topped off with an extended sharpening life, giving you the power to not hold back once you hit the ice.
