    Using the unsharp mask allows you greater control over the degree of sharpening that takes place.

    Unsharp mask and sharpen are both sharpening tools. Sharpening sharpens a predefined value. UnSharp mask got its name from a darkroom technique for sharpening (weird name huh), in photoshop, unsharp mask allows a better control over the sharpening.

    How sharp, is kind of depends on one's preference...
