I have no idea what a figure skate type cut is, but I would never go into a store and tell them "regular goalie cut" as most of them wouldn't have a clue of what that is.

Personally I get mine done at the beginning of the month and the middle of the month. I skate anywhere from 2-5 times per week.

During the warmer months I have mine done at 1/2", but as it is getting colder and the ice is getting harder I will go to 7/16" or 3/8".
