    Hi Cliff, i cant see too much detail so ill keep my comments to the color and pattern.

    1. From what i can see the colors all seem consistent.
    2. The white seems really white.
    3. The kiwa and sashi looks sharp and clean cut.
    4. Personally I dont like the head pattern and the beni pattern in general is very boring.
    5. The sumi is too heavy for me but this can be a personal taste thing again.
    6. The sumi is too far back on the body it needs some on the shoulder areas.
    7. No tejima.
    8. I would have liked a white nose.
    9. Tail stop - good

    Technically not a bad koi, it checks the majority of the check boxes but not one that i would buy. Its missing that X factor that keeps one intrigued and wanting to look again.

    Just my opinion using my own taste as measurement.

    This sanke is from Isawa, from Sakai.
    It is not from Oishi.

    Pretty colors. Poor pattern and poor prospect for the future. Good show fish for now, although the pattern is low class and that will work against this fish if a quality pattern is competing. JR

    oishi sankes and kohaku are femous for their good pattern.
    this is a Sakai sake...the picture is not so good. better to wait and see a good picture of it when it arrives.
