    Smile

    The hi seems to pinch or hour glass on the back where it should be the boldest in impact.

    As I focus on the head it is too narrow in the eye sock region. The body line after the eye sock is great, but the focus is thrown off by the cheek area. It might be the angle but that is my first impression. The pattern is good and skin quality good but nose is too pointed for me...

    This was just a koi I found online on a auction. I thought it was cool looking. I would never buy a koi on a online auction.

    Cool, as you look at the shoulders of the showa they are developed already...The heads bone structure is too narrow...

    OK Mr. T, in the spring I'm going to send you some money to pick me out some nice tosai to play with. Can you find me a good green chagoi and a sanke? If you have to look in Joe's pond for the chagoi that's OK.

    Sure no problem!!! Joe's pond is hidden and haven't been there...I heard there are dangerous things you have to watch out for when goin there...So I am goin to have to charge double if you want the chagoi..
