Is my logic sound?

I really prefer to grind after HT whenever possible. I recently completed a Stainless Steel San-Mai billet from 416 and 1095. The resulting knife is ready for HT but it is a good 3/16 full in thickness. I normally do not grind anything over 1/8 post HT. BUT I figure the 416 will harden a little when quenched (at 1095 numbers) but not hard enough to greatly effect my grinding. So really it should be no problem to grind this thick of a Stainless San-Mai blade post HT. What say you?
