Knife???? Really! I hadn't heard of that kind of retouching. Wow that is a risk! Well, I would certainly make a dupe neg before attempting that Imagine you get a few minutes with some famous film starlet and then you take a knife to the neg...
Yeah I think I'd shoot at least 4 sheets.
Now imagine trying to retouch this way with 35mm film.
