Re: Ojiya/Hiroshima/Isawa Bound PSKoi Fall 2019

Both Kohaku are amazing, but I am absolutely blown away by the thickness and quality of the beni on that second Torazo Kohaku! Also, very interesting to see a much larger Goshiki Shigure - I've always been curious to see how the Beni changes as they age. How do these differ from Hosokai's Ochiba Gos...

Re: Minuma Tosai Part 2/4-30-19

Russ, is #72 a Mameshibori Goshiki by chance? I hadn't seen one as a Tosai before, and thought it had a very unusual pattern at the moment.

Oh maaan.. :-SS X_X

I'm unfamiliar with Minuma's lines, but these are some of the best Goshiki Tosai I've seen. Does Minuma specialize in any one type of Goshiki over others?

Awesome coverage of the show - quality of those fish, even though small, is unreal. Would love to be able to see koi of this quality in person someday.

Re: Ojiya/Hiroshima/Isawa Bound PSKoi Spring 2019

Russ, is it just me or does the skin on these Tosai appear to be thicker than previous Omosako Tosai offered during your last Spring buying trip? Blown away by the quality level!
