    Takamura R2 Migaki/Akagouhan

    Aside from apparent profiles, what are the primary significant differences between the Takamura R2 Migaki and the Takamura R2 Akagouhan? There is certainly much different pricing, with the latter retailing for about $100 more (in 180mm gyutos).

    Are you seeing these at two different vendors? I thought knifewear just called them Akagouhan and migaki is more of a generic term many vendors use which can also mean "polish". Aka is red and googlefu says gouhan is something about veneer wood so maybe it just describes the red handle which is what they're often known for?

    Cool, I love my smart oven but am kinda annoyed about the butter warmer because cutlery and more had it listed as a 90/10 piece but its actually just copper plated. They offered me 20% off a future purchase which I accepted but shouldn't have since they offer that periodically anyways
