Grab a spare cutting edge and weld a tooth on each corner and a few in the middle, then take off the corresponding teeth on the bucket and slide the edge on the blank shanks and pop the pins back in. Another trick is to make sleeves that fit over the teeth and weld a brace back on the edge that can be bolted to the bucket.

It'll take a little getting use to but you'll have the best of both worlds. In NC it's hard to find a skid steer or ctl without a 4 in 1.
This is what I would do, seems like a 4 in 1 should be standard equipment.

Always graded with a tooth bucket. The only time I would ever want a smooth edge is getting dirt off of a hard surface or grass or moving spoils.

I also take an old grader blade and weld too the back of the bucket for back dragging.

Look into a Rezloh edge, Its a great compromise. I have run them for years.

I would look at getting a land plane. Yes it is an another attachments, but it speeds up grade work. Been doing this work for many years, was very very surprised how much this attachment sped up grade work. Scrapes off high spots, carries a little material, breaks up clods, has ripper teeth if needed, and has cutting edge up front to smooth out for the finish. I thought it was a little pricey, I gave 2600 for a 84" deere, but very well worth the money

I would too as well but the teeth on my bucket last about 250 hrs so I would be upset if that edge only lasted that long so I am scared too try it.
