    Your Shiro Utsuri has Presence and Impact

    Very idealised Tamura Shiro Utsuri!
    Callum congratulation to be the proud owner.
    Shiroji. Pattern. Motoguro. Conformation. All things perfect.
    This should serve 'How to choose a Shiro well'!
    Dude, share with everyone your take on this!

    Funny, how many people recognized the name of the breeder of this koi. mention Omosako and people are all over it. The ultimate challenge of any koi keeper is to be able to identify a good koi when they see one.

    I like the pattern and skin on this koi. Pretty face!

    Tamura is based in Hiroshima area and produces some very nice fish.

    Unfortunately thats the power of good marketing. Callums shiiro is beautiful. A Japanese ZNA judge had said that when judging Shiros, The 1st thing he looks fo is the Shiroji, then the Sumi and then pattern. SO this koi has my vote as well.

    Choosing a good Shiro Utsuri

    To hwong:
    Omosako good marketing power, undeniable. Quality speaks to live that!
    hwong, you had encounters with Japanese ZNA judge on Shiros!
    To look for Shiroji: snowy clean skin?
    then the Sumi: deep ebony lacquered black?
    then the pattern: interesting ones?
    For all the three pointers stated, care to elaborate?
    You definitely sound you have solid background and rich experiences!
    Do share with more details. Madison BK.

    Baby Koi, Sorry to disappoint you. I dont have the experience. I was speaking to the judge about the comparitive difference between the 1st placed Shiro and my that came second. I always thought that solidly filled laquer Sumi and pattern was the most important and then Shiroji. The judge had it in the reverse order. The 1st placed shiro had a lot better shiroji even though its sumi had many unfilled areas.

    What is your take on this?

    Nice Shiro

    the person who ownes this koi should be very pleased. The quality of this Shiro is stunning. The combination of the clear Shiroji and the strong Sumi makes this koi superb. The menware wich is coming looks nice to. The pattern is simple but still interesting. What age is she? 3- 4 years old?
    I would say congradulations for the owner!!!
