    I've bought on Japanese auction 3 blades in bad condition.
    On pics are santoku-deba-santoku.
    Both santoku have 3 plies SS-carbon-SS.
    Next step - handles., will show later...

    Is it normal for some knives to not have shoulders? I thought they acted as a stop when gluing a handle up?

    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...

    The "shoulder" are you are referring to is called the Machi. Not all knives have a machi, and are largely due to regional difference, but also knife type. Debas in my experience, almost never have a Machi.

    Many knives feature the highly debated "Machi Gap" where the handle does not meet the Machi.

    Thanks a lot, Mowgs!
    But first time mention about "shoulders" wasn't from me)))...
    BTW I hate the gap between Machi and ferrule, sorry)))...
    OK, anyway the picks on the way.
