I appreciate all of the shared knowledge and honesty on this forum, it is a very helpful resource for uninformed consumers such as myself.
Even though I've read most of the associated posts, I'm still a little confused about the pros and cons of akoya handama v. freshadama. With the naked eye, are the two types easy to tell apart or are they distinct (shape, color)? I assume they weigh more but would consider that a pro, not a con.
Based on the posts I've seen here, I wonder why I would ever buy an akoya strand - even if cost wasn't a major issue. It seems too easy, am I missing something?
