The only wood carving tool I need to sharpen on both side is my bend hook knife for spoon carving. It didn’t come ready but it was close.
My v gouges are the hardest to get right but all of them only get buffed on fluffy cotton wheel on the inside. Once I get the bevel side geometry right then both side are kept sharp with cotton wheel. I do use a red jewelry rouge.
So the short answer is no stone for the inside faces only cotton buffing wheel.
I offer this pic for your consideration to decide if my words hold water.

Good Luck
