    This is a tough one for me,Showa's and Shiro's are definately my favourite varieties,cant really pick between them.
    I like fish with plenty of sumi on them so tend to go for heavier sumi Shiro and showa and have a few of each however overtime I am learning to appreciate other Showa varieties ie Kindai and now have four of them.
    With Shiro I have had a few one I lost a few years ago which I was very sad to lose but the 2 I have now are IMO beautiful. One is a very heavy black one which is not to everyones taste and the other a more traditional but still with alot of sumi.

    As they say:

    "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"

    If we all liked the same thing..boring.

    I have a bit of a thing about:

    Goshiki
    Tancho
