Re: Rich, is the Genesis is truly a prestige?
The rosewood have a slight treatment if you look at better shots. but I don't think they've ever claimed they were Prestige. Nothing in print ever has said anything. Nothing maple but some rare signature models and the AZ's get treatment. The Genesis has ever bit of the close tolerances, it uses the same programs as Prestige for all the mill work, but these were always about giving you Japanese on a budget. They don't even give you a multi tool.
