Gouges.....in- or out-cannel??.....

roger lance
Beyond the more basic question of whether or not I need (want) to add some gouges to my hand tool kit, is the question of what is the difference to the work of having the cutting edge honed on the inside or outside of the blade?

Is one easier or more difficult to sharpen?.....does one require more stuff to get sharp over the other?.....etc, etc.
