This go set came to Baduk Club from a pawn shop in Hiroshima. It includes a 17cm floor board (30cm with legs), high quality go bowls, and slate and shell go stones.
The board has a beautiful cross-cut (tenchi masa). It has a very even color, and the consistency of the parallel lines points towards Shinkaya. The endgrains have beautiful compression waves. The sides have fantastic cross-grain patterns, due to the cutting style, while the other surfaces feature parallel lines which are easy on the eyes when playing.
Please see my Care Instructions for details on caring for the board and cleaning the stones.
The go bowls look like Quince. The stones are slate and shell, approximately size 30. They are a bit dirty and should be cleaned. They were not closely examined, but I will send replacements for any pieces that are missing or broken so that you have a full set - this is included in the purchase price.
FedEx International Priority shipping from Japan (to almost everywhere) is already included in the purchase price (a $300 value), which reduces the transit time to only 5 business days. Please allow 1-2 weeks for packing and clearing Customs, at which point we will email you the FedEx tracking number so that you can track it and manage your delivery.
Please understand that this is a vintage item.
