Fairy Samurai

I think you will all find this a bit different - it is for Børge.

It is plain vanilla but with a "slightly" different layout - I've been thinking about a layout like this for over a year.

Nothing beyond pointing pairs and hidden singles.

No single part solves but the solution space is quite restrained, so it all works together.

Improvements on the name welcome.

Simon_blow_snow suggested the name "Blade Samaurai" and has posted better pictures and a solution here:

For clarity:
The centre is a plain vanilla sudoku.
The outer Blades have no nonets, horizontals cannot repeat, verticals cannot repeat and the marked diagonals cannot repeat. the other diagonals can (and often do) repeat.

Enxio copied the best one and posted it on the Assassin site:

I'll be doing killer version shortly.

By the way I'm asking about the minimum number or cages in a plain killer on that site. Has there been a discussion here that I missed?
