It shouldn't be a "V" the whole way down the blade, it should be more of a square shape. This allows you to shift your body weight from side to side, onto each edge.

The above picture should give a good look at what a skate looks like ultra-close, although the inward "U" isn't really that pronounced. It is actually more square, kind of like how you mentioned.

If your skate has been sharpened correctly, the two edges on either side should be quite sharp when you run your finger down it.
