This set came to Baduk Club from Sawa's Mountain Stream toy shop.
There are 180 black and 179 white pieces. The black are slate, about 9mm. The white are clamshell, about 8.8mm. It is common for the black to be larger than the white - if they are made the same size then the shiny white stones appear bigger. The grade of the stones is unclear, but looks to be utility or moon-grade.
The Japanese go bowls are textbook Keyaki (zelkova), size XL. They have a lovely orange 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).
The bowls fit the stones comfortably, with plenty of room to spare.
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.
