We were barred from using the grinder in the two places where I had any formal training. And you wouldn't take one on site. Yes the stone takes the wear but they still last for life!...
Your method works Jacob, it just substitutes the honing stone for the grinder. The stones take the wear that the grinder otherwise would have. This is precisely why grinders were invented in the first place.
PS re "hollow grind" is this why people get chipped blades? There isn't much room for a hollow grind on a thin blade, without resulting in a weak edge.
