MY BUT is this:
never seen spine like projections on the under-surface of the leaves in this plant before, have seen a few.
Since this seems to be indoors, may not be a stress response by the plant.
wonder what is it due to?
or may it is a different plant altogether.
and did it ever flower?
any pictures of it flowering?

found it at this page

(he is a dentist in southern california, writes for daves garden.. and owns a lot of succulents.)
and i quote
Kalanchoe ‘Fang’ is a Kalanchoe beharensis hybrid (possibly 
with K. tomentosa, some claim?) that is a much shorter plant, and certainly
 a less vigorous grower, but a common one in cultivation.This plant has heavy, 
succulent very fuzzy leaves with teeth-like knobs 
over the leaf surface (the “‘fangs,” perhaps?) ” end quote…
