    You better have a damn good machinist if you want to knife edge a crank you take to 9000rpm on a regular basis!

    Knifing has nothing to do with lightening. Its not as common as per say the 60`s thru the 80`s simply because newer motor designs control oil better and damn near every pan made has a windage tray in it already. Not to mention casting tolerances are much greater now than ever before.
