        joe,
        this looks like the one called 'bottom left' in your shiro posting.

          I am sure it is Stan, I guess you decided to get a Shiro per hour Conversation over the phone...

          Good to hear...

            Have you noticed how often Omosako Shiros have mediocre patterns? The traditional Shiro patterns seem to be accompanied by conformation and body size issues. Omosako produces so many with nice bodies and quality Sumi, but only a few with eyecatching pattern. (Perhaps there are more we just do not get to see in the West?) Pattern is not of much weight in showing, but nonetheless the source of much of the pleasure of koi gazing.

            ..... This one has many bands of Sumi, giving the opportunity for an attractive pattern to rise, and the distribution of Sumi is even and throughout the fish. Personally, I find that appealing. The traditional checkerboard is not present, but the alternating "peaks" just may give you the reflections-type patterning for which Utsuri are named. Watching the Sumi consolidate, scale by scale, will be a pleasure.

              Since I have a gun to my head I will say something nice about this tosai.

              Seriously, (gun or no gun) this is a beautiful shiro utsuri with typical omosako quality ie good shiroji and sumi. With well placed sumi what else can one ask? I suppose one will have to watch the body as is often the case with Omosako's shiro utsuri.

              I would love to see how the sumi in the head will develop which will further enhance the beauty of this koi.

              Truly a tategoi and one for keeps.

              Cheers, dtbh.

                You know the funny thing about this hobby is that you start with Kohak and come full circle again to Kohak...I guess the same saying can be said about buying tosai...I still buy tosai and it still amazes me how fish develop..Now back to my critique:
                • Bloodline and breeder are the best you can get for Shiro.
                • Tosai's conformation is very good.
                • Can't tell sumi quality yet but from what is coming up the pattern looks to be very nice.
                • Skin quality is so so now, but I expect it to clean up when it becomes older.
                Stan have fun watching this fish grow and develop.
                The world sleeps as the chance to learn something new passes.

                  thanks everyone, I will enjoy this koi. Will keep you posted on how this koi improve, or de-generate over time.

                  There is a nice shiro in kevin's pond. I will get it for my 60th birthday, if it is still available.

                    OOOOOOOh,

                    Are you talking about the big one whose tail join is healing right now?

                    If so, that's a nice birthday present!

                        Very nice...two good selections out of that bowl. The one I liked was directly above this one, between two other shiro's.....would have like different view of it though.

                          i think the sumi on this koi will be very high quality though i have some doubts on the shiroji, though another strong point is the body shape and head, this looks great from the pic
