very hard, you have to sand carefully til its gone ,don t hit the scale itself---- if not done right your next spacer will have a "space" in it, another way more dangerous is too use a table saw with out the guard on, and steadily slide it against the stabilizer while the blade is turning--- spacers are the hardest part for me in rescaling my blades-------- because i angle them as to wishbone the scales, if the tang of the blade tapers to the trigger/monkeytail------you menioned it tapers, so you cant use a even spacer- the blade will bind on the shoulder or somewhere on the thick part of the spine, (this situation is a stress fitting)in time it will crack at the pivot, you want a relaxed fitting
the scales will need to wrap around the tang to meet the angle of the tang-here is a picture-you SEE how it Y's out, when I close it to secure the blade it will wrap AROUND the blade, the Center of the scales will have a Wider space then the ends , when all put together,
THEN while opening and closeing the razor you will have minimum flex in the scales
