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.
