I also go a long time between sharpenings. I had mine done probably five weeks ago, which was maybe 10-12 skates, and they still feel fine. I also don't like the new sharpening "edge", although it's got to be the edge and not the hollow because I'm on FBV. I usually don't feel I have enough edge if I go any "shallower", but after about one skate I'm good to go.

I do use the stone every couple skates and if I get a bad nick, I'll sharpen them up. Usually though, when I lose an edge, there's NOTHING back there.

But going a full year without a sharpening is not possible for me, since I play outside in the winter and that will wreck the edges fairly quickly.
