This set came to Baduk Club from a Go and Shogi shop in Kanagawa.
There are 183 black and 182 white pieces. The black are slate, about 11.2-11.5mm. The white are clamshell, about 11-11.2mm (about 40% snow grade and 60% moon grade). It is common for the black to be thicker than the white - if they are made the same size then the shiny white stones appear larger.
The Japanese go bowls are textbook Mulberry, size XXL. They have a lovely brown color and their original finish, so it is up to you whether you want to scrub off the old shellac (of course, we recommend oiling and waxing bowls for longevity, please see our Care Instructions). They are 16.1cm wide and 10.5cm tall.
The bowls fit the stones comfortably, with plenty of room to spare. They bowls come with a protective Paulownia storage box and it has a decorative ribbon.
This set is still in Japan, it has not been refurbished in our Colorado shop. This is why we can offer it at this price.
This is a Vintage product.
