Before I got my ‘resharpenable’ blades, I regularly honed the disposable blade with diamond hones. They wouldn’t cope with a heavy re-grind, but as Ampeater says, a few thou is acceptable. I routed a slot in a length of hardwood to hold the blade snug & mounted the wood in the vice. The top was angled identical to the grind angle of the blades, thus giving me a guide for the diamond hone. There should be no risk of upsetting the balance if you’re removing such a small amount.
