This board came to Baduk club from a Go and Shogi dealer in Tokyo.
The board is a lovely color typical of Kaya, with a candy color. It is a 5-piece hagi board, where the wood has been joined together - this type of construction is quite common for a table board, since making it from a single piece can lead to eventual warping. The board looks to be sitting flat on the surface, so if there is any warping it is minimal.
It is an older board, but is in very good shape without major defects. Small cracks in the endgrain seem to have self-closed over time. Please see the photos for details.
This is a vintage item.
