What's your opinion of the three-faceted cutters with flat knife edges? Do they have more or less drag than traditionally sharpened two facet cutters? Do they wear slower in use?
Actually the jury is still out on that. I only sharpened one set of cutters that way and I can not notice the difference. Off hand I'd bet there is a little more drag but resharpening may be easier with the knife edges because the overall length of the tooth should last a lot longer. That would greatly reduce the requirement to joint.
