I mirror Bob's comments above, and will add this:

Our engines are dry sump. Knife edging usually is done to reduce the friction of the crank cutting thru the oil in the oil pan. As Bobn stated above, used in conjunction with a windage and/or sraper tray, it can be quite effective.

However, when our engines are running, there is very little oil in the botton of the case, as the oil pump in the dry sump system, is very effective at removing the oil.

For an all out race engine, where you have money on the line if you win or lose... then go for it. But for a street car, DE car, or even a PCA racer... I would doubt that it would be worth the extra cost.
