I can't remember the exact terminology, but a properly ground crankshaft throw will have a small curve at the edges instead of a sharp 90 degree angle. They do that to strengthen the crankshaft and prevent cracking. The rods have to have the chamfer to clear that, other wise you would have metal to metal contact which would quickly destroy your engine.
Therefore you win that disagreement!
