Interestingly, aren't the swordsman chopper pants somewhat similar to kinemon's? Dunno though, I don't see kinemon joining.... Maybe his soon will join? That would be an interesting development. Anyways, wano is such a place that neither world government nor pirates mess with it odds are it would not be in the best interest of the strawhats to go there. More so, if their borders are closed then kinemon is actually their best and perhaps only chance of getting in there. I think kinemon's ultimate role lies there, allowing the strawhats into wano.
Well, since Jinbe is a sure thing, the question remains who the last one will be, unless Oda decides to go over 10 crewmates.
Jinbe is not necessarily a sure thing nowadays IMO. I think it is more likely that once fishman island becomes luffy's territory he will stay there as a representative strawhat or something. Technically he would be a strawhat but he would not be pirating around with luffy and co.
the strawhats could be 10 or more people....i think oda said in SBS that luffy's crewmembers will depend on "luffy's heart content"....and luffy said "at least 10 people...so im thinking it could be 10 or more nakamas...and right now luffy have 8 on board.
viv, carue, merry and sunny are not counted imo.

Here's an interesting question: if that Samurai does join, what do you think his bounty will be?
Well, the samurai is a haki user capable of matching brook without two legs and a head. He does not have a bounty as he is not a pirate but a warrior from an independent nation however considering brook nowadays seems more than capable of easily defeating 80 mil bounty pirates I would argue this guy should be at at least 100 mil and that would not be much for him. He does not seem to have a criminal record however strength alone would give him at least 150 mil.
How do you know he's a haki user?
I think the assumption is that he's a CoO user, because Kinemon was able to evade the dragon and the mugiwaras for a bit, even tried to attack them. Could just have happened out of coincidence too, but less likely Imo.
edit: ... and all of the post below too.

The fight with brook would have been altogether impossible without some degree of haki knowledge and ability. He wasn't just swinging around his two blades, he was actively evading and countering brook's moves. Taking that into consideration, kinemon has incredible mastery of observation haki if he is able to do that with only two arms to fight.
In that case it seems more possible that kineamon will be more like influence to zoros growth than joining. Maybe teach him to us haki??
If Zoro doesn't know Haki by now, I SWEAR I'll use a sign that says "I'm your bitch" for a whole week. Really.
I like Kinnemon, but taking my own words...no one without an easy name will join the Strawhats.
off topic....but anyone noticed that ALL STRAWHATS only got 2 syllables in their names except brook?....i know its likely just cause so the name would be easy to memorize...but im just thinking, it could be a hint....see: jin-be
