Smaller numbers (3/8") means deeper groove, so the edges of your skates dig in the ice deeper. Better for control and turning, but more tendency to bite if you aren't used to it.
Larger numbers (5/8" 3/4" 1") means shallower groove, less bite. Better for gliding, easier to do stuff like stops and 180degree transitions (forward<->backward).
