Short ferrule overlap!

In a bunch of blemished blanks there are a few where the top ferrule (on a four piece) that do overlap far too little - like 3 cm or somewhat more than an inch.
The fit is ok.

I would feel better if I got a better overlap - could I try using a fine hone or sandpaper either inside the female ferrule or on the male ferrule??? Or should I just leave it the way it is???

Any advice appreciated!

Tight lines!
