    Hi Jang,
    Since you have asked about the Maruten Sanke......... I am one that am a sucker when come to Maruten...... love Maruten. But somehow the 2nd and 3rd beni patch, the color is rather weak, especially noticeably weak at the 3rd patch. Will the Beni strengthen over time since this is still a Tosai? Well, we will never know.......and this is one gamble that I will not make.....

    I like the lower left sanke. What u think about that? I would love to hear your opinion/suggestion. If i were to ask you, which one will u choose?

    It might be the picture, but from what I can see, the lower left sanke is having rather orange beni compare to other red beni.

    If I have to pick from this, I would probably go for the bottom left since it has a stronger body (from this angle anyway) and interesting sumi (and underlying) placement.

    A little bit botak before the tail but probably my pick from this batch.

    Do you have any other angle for this batch?

    Ic. But for sanke, is it not a demerit since no beni near the tail?

    @Shukri chose the 2nd one. Both are from SFF.
