A guy with 3/8 will need more sharpenings (in general) than a guy with a 5/8.

3/8 - Smaller radius, deeper groove, more acute edge angle, easier to dull, more sharpening.

5/8 - Larger radius, shallow groove, less acute edge angle, slower to dull, less sharpening.

But even still how often you sharpen is also personal taste.
