Any thoughts or experiences on these when compared to Miura's blade offerings?

I didnít like the thickness of the sole relative to my Miura BB.  Granted, they have a V sole, but the execution of the sole on the Hogans is better IMO.

I'm vacationing in Japan in April. Eying these up as a souvenir.

Any thoughts on the gapping of these irons? I prefer 4i-22˚-pw-46˚, but not 4˚ gaps all the way through.

Also anyone prefer raw over the chrome or vise versa? I like the look of both. I like chrome for initial durability, but thinking the raw will age /maintain better. I have had raw wedges, but never irons. Planning on keeping these and playing them as a secondary set the rest of my life.

Apologies for the absence from the thread. Been working in gym on long drive training more than swinging these but recently got them out, comparing 7i's: Kyoei on TT BG X vs. Cobra King Forged Pro CB on TT X7 the cavity back was longer, but I'm able to swing the Cobra 4 mph faster and feel the head is bit hotter than the blade, so always going to be longer full blast. For normal swinging the Kyoei feels better and distance given up for it doesn't matter to me as I'm long with them any way.  My preference for stepless shaft aesthetics is why I have BG's in the set, however, if the X7 was offered in 41" I'd likely replace the BGs with them. The Mizuno driving irons at the top of this bag are an absolute joy to hammer with, testing a PXG Gen II 1i soon but it will have to be exceptional to overtake the MHP5s for 1i-3i in this set. Regarding Miura, have always admired them but haven't swung a set, the Kyoei's hooked me on appearance and aggressive specs.
