There's a little test you can do for the sharpening of your blade. Place your skate upside down with the blade facing straight up. Place a coin on the blade and check if it's perfectly level or perpendicular to the blade. If it's not perfectly 90deg to the blade, it was sharpened off-center and it will cut into the ice more when turning one way than the other. At least that will help you eliminate that possibility.
