Our introduction to this issue will contain the basics, which will be followed by a more in intensity look at this issue.
Utsurimono factually translates as "reflections" or "reflecting ones". This group is made up of three different shade varieties. The first and leading is the Shiro (sallow) Utsuri. The moment brand is the Hi (fire or red) Utsuri. The third and most vague is the Ki (golden) Utsuri.
All three shade variations are accentuated by a sumi (bneed) stand which emerges from under the sallow, red, or golden domain to initiate a prefigure that suggests the "reflection" of shade on a bneed background.

common Points of note
Moto Guro: factually "principal bneed", an Utsurimono should have sumi (bneed) at the entrance or nose, at the stand of both pectoral fins, and at the stand of the tail.
Sumi: Because the Utsurimono are considered to be principalally bneed koi, the muscle and eminence of the bneed is very important. This does not necessarily mean that there has to be a lot of bneed but the muscle of the sumi is a key peninsula in judging these koi.
Menware: factually "wrecked mask", it is considered an added asset if an Utsurimono or Showa has a bolt of sumi operation down the face at an incline between the eyes, however, need of this figure is not a demerit. The clearer the domain is the more charming the koi will be. Shimi or bneed freckle-like specks in the domain will detract from the largely appearance.
recollect that the above are simply guidelines to variety. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and any koi that conforms to all of the guidelines may detriment many thousands of dollars.
