I bevel primary for aesthetics/cool factor, but you do gain some performance.I was thinking about 1/8" FG fins the same way, and how do you not end up with a sharp knife edge after beveling?
Is this all worth the extra 10 feet in altitude you would gain?
I avoid a knife edge bevel by taking progressive cuts, and taking my time.
I have done knife edge bevels before, primarily if the fins were going to receive carbon or glass fin to fin after. Adding composite layers over a knife edge bevel "softens" the edge quite a bit.
