I dunno, what the hell does it do anyway??
well, Take say a BIC lighter and spin it realy fast thru water, and then take a Steak knife and spin it fast thru water Which has less friction?

well i kno that laskeyracing.com or something like that does it for 150 shipping there and back.....but a local machine shop should be able to do it and they would be a lot cheaper and faster

the cost versus benefits of knife edging are not enough to justify it being done on a street driven motor.. spend the money elsewhere.
+1, how much do you REALLY think you're losing to windage on a street d?
hell, even a race d!

I'd do it on a 10k+rpm B or K, but until you spin it that fast its not worth the cost.
