This lovely board is from a seller in Chiba with an immaculate reputation.
Even beginners deserve to have a positive experience, so why not introduce them with the best materials possible?
This is a 4cm hagi board (3 pieces joined together), which is common for boards of this thickness to avoid the warping that will occur over time with a single-piece board.
There is a 9x9 board one one side and a 13x13 board on the reverse.
The grains are lovely. The board itself is kaya and is almost new with only a few blemishes. Kaya is very dense because it is a slow-growth three. The board weighs about 2kg.
Please contact me if you would like to bundle this item with another order.
International seamail shipping from Japan (to almost everywhere) is already included in the purchase price for free - however, this service takes up to 2-3 months. You may upgrade to FedEx shipping by adding this upgrade to your cart. This also means your items will have more room for padding and spend less time in transit, so they are less likely to be damaged by the shipping. In either case you will have a tracking number from the shipping service that you can use to sign up for notifications.
Please understand that this is a vintage item, so it is sold in an as-is condition.
