3mm V chisel

How much a difference will a 3mm v-chisel make vs. a 6mm? I'm watching the grape vine ribbon and reeds on a turning video in which Mary uses a 3mm. I would like to do vines, leaves, etc., of that size, so if the 3mm helps, I'll get one.

If a 3mm is an advantage, why? You can see better? Is the swoop at the bottom a different size and that somehow matters?

My 6mm V chisel is probably the hardest tool for me to sharpen. Is the 3mm going to be even harder?
