ALL MK and Wilson Blades Closeout Priced
We have decided to stop selling skate blades. We will be
concentrating on our apparel and
We have the following blades available at closeout prices:
If you are looking for MK or Wilson blades,
there are several websites located in the UK have have far lower
prices than you can get in the US, even with paying the additional shipping.
Here is why. In the United States, HD Sports, the blade manufacturer, enforces a
Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) policy. No dealer is allowed to advertise below a set
price or they will have their dealership revoked. That is why you see the same
price on every US website. ex. Gold Seal Blades are $ 540.00, etc. In the UK and
Europe, Minimum Advertised Price agreements are illegal, so each dealer is
allowed to advertise and sell for whatever price they choose. The exact same
Gold Seal blade is currently advertised for anywhere from $385 to $487.00 in the
(these prices do vary with the exchange rate between USD and GBP).
So, do yourself a favor, save some money and help spread the word that we in the
U.S. should not have to put up with these policies that restrict competition and
keep us paying artificially high prices.
Check these websites:

and just for fun, the US wholesale prices and

You will find that you can buy blades from the
UK at about the same prices as the wholesale dealer price
in the USA. (Scroll to the end of the document for a list of US wholesale prices
