Also, depending on your skating ability, a shallower hollow will make it easier to exploit your blades' outside edges.
And edge is an edge. Doesn't matter if it's on a 3/4", 1/2" or 7/16" etc. It's the depth of the hollow that most people feel and articulates as 'sharpness'. All skates sharpened at whatever hollow is 'sharp', it's the depth that counts.
