This maybe a bit crazy but experimentation has lead to new techniques, new steel alloys etc. Has anyone ever done this with a toothy one side and smooth on the other? Or perhaps have any hypothetical results based on your existing experiences with dealing in general with smooth vs toothy edges? I have heard people changing the sharpening angle to more broad near the handle for harder cutting techniques but I have never heard anything about side-alternating finish type? I suppose a logical more sane additional side-question out of this idea is where do you stand on the idea of sharpening one length of the blade, for example the back part, as toothy and having the front half finished to a smoother higher grit level? What are your thoughts on the practicality/benefits of either of these?
