lots of times makers buy the steel pre laminated so no not more work that way, also often the cladding is used for strength,,, thin hard core, tough cladding.
I get why you are frustrated there, all these knives and no one seems to make the one you want! MARK u listening? time for a G - 3 line and honyakis!

I've seen a lot of knives sharpened into the cladding. However, I don't ever notice a difference really unless we're talking about single bevel knives. Sharpening a monosteel (i.e. honyaki) single bevel knife is a lot more time consuming than a kasumi (clad) version if you're flattening the entire bevel let's say.

Soft stainless clad may be very abrasion resistant and clog the stones, so thinning it may be rather unpleasant.
