    My opinion as well. I would assume it would be easier to grind?

    having recently honed an Ern 7/8 full hollow without shoulders I can say that they are very pressure sensitive for honing and flex quite easy

    A properly ground razor with double plunge lines should be as easy to hone as a shoulderless blade, because the shoulders should not normally touch the stone, though admittedly it is usually a close call. That said, they only serve a purpose on full hollow razors.

    Mind you, with a bit of practice, the existence of the shoulder lines should not have any effect on how you hone the blade.

    Even with a shoulderless grind one has to be mindful of the fact that if you draw a perpendicular line up from the end of the cutting edge at the heel, you will be into the tapered part of the shank face. At least that's how it is on my two shoulderless blades
