I think that some do, and some don't. There was a recent issue of Orfeo
that I think showed a few Japanese makers, partly influenced by Romanillos, who use that method. Quite a few makers who use that design have adopted
Romanillos's method of using a wedge (or two) against the sides, in an enlarged slot. On the other hand, my '67 S. Nakade definitely has a dovetail joint.

For sure.
