    Is SHUN a Japanese knife?

    Good notice, dear. But shoulders make sense, when a thickness less than 3mm. Left one Santoku has, but Deba(5mm) and another Santoku(4mm) doesn't. All blades are not ready yet for assembling - need some work, I'll show later. Probably they'll have a handles from a teakwood + some spacers...
