Beth try a 9/16 sharp the edges will last a bit longer, and you will skate a little faster.

That being said the shallower the hollow the longer your edges should last. I sharpen at 9/16 and sharpen at least every 5 skates, or about once a week to week and a half.

I do like fresh edges, and I really should use a 3/4 hollow I'm a big guy. and I get my skated profiled every year to try to keep them consistent.
