All my chisels have a flat back – never touch the back except for stropping to get the burrs off. Most of my chisel work involves cutting off tenons to the flat surface or cleaning out dado cuts etc… If I encounter work that needs to be done with a beveled edge, I flip the chisel over and use the beveled side. But whatever you do with your chisels or however you want to sharpen them is OK with me. As the old saying goes… “there’s more then one way to skin a cat”.
