    Shiro Utsuri, Harjiro and Matsukwabake how do you tell one from another?

    Can anyone help me discern the differing bloodlines between Shiro Utsuri, Harjiro and Matsukwabake and is there a simple definition for each variety ? How do you tell one from another?

    So no-one has any ideas after 258 views and no comments? Surely someone must know how to tell the difference?

    So, the only difference (to my knowledge) is the sumi based on the bloodline. Hajiro is a black fish with white fins and sometimes white head its pretty stable. Matsukawabake is a scaled kumonryu, which is to say the pattern is subject to a lot of change. Also, it has sumi that runs in bands from head to tail directionally. Shiro utsuri is a more stable pattern where the sumi runs from dorsal to bellY directionally. Some people will say it wraps around the fish.
