This thick goban set includes a Matsu go board, cardstock lid, go bowls, and slate and shell stones. It came to Baduk Club from a private home in Aichi, Japan.
The go board is about 9cm thick, and stands 22cm tall with legs on. The legs are a warmer color and are probably Katsura. The corners and edges are quite clean, so it is in excellent shape. It comes with its original paperboard cover. Visit our Care Instructions to learn more about caring for this board.
The dark brown bowls have great lines, and are Kuri (chestnut). They have their original finish, and look size XL based on their footprint on the board as well as their ability to hold the stones with some room to spare. They come with their original box.
The stones are slate and shell, but were not measured or counted. Some appear to be Utility, while others are Moon grade. Based on the photos I would guess that the thickness is about 7.5mm-8.8mm, between size 25 and 32.
We will work with you to complete the set of stones if there are not 180 of each color. Please contact us when the board arrives and you have a chance to count everything (ideally, send caliper measurements so that we can send the appropriate replacements).
This is a Vintage product.
FedEx International Priority shipping from Japan (to everywhere) is already included in the purchase price, a service that reduces the actual transit time to only 5 business days. This is about half of the overall cost. The actual value for Customs Declarations and VAT will not include the shipping cost. If you would like to downgrade to Japan Post Seamail to save $80 on shipping cost, please contact us to do this at your own risk. In either case, please allow 1 week for the board to be packed, then a tracking number will be emailed to you.
