This set came to Baduk Club from a go and shogi dealer in Kanagawa, Japan.
There are 181 black pieces are slate, about 11mm. The 180 white pieces are clamshell, about 10,7mm. Two spares of each color are included.
The Japanese go bowls are Keyaki, size XXL. They have their original finish in very good condition, and the undersides carry a maker's mark from Kaishi, a well-respected craftsman.
The set comes with a protective Paulownia storage box with a decorative purple ribbon.
This set is still in Japan, it has not been refurbished in our Colorado shop. This is why we do not have specific measurements or back-lit photos of the clamshell, and why we can offer it at a discounted rate. Please refer to the photos provided, as we do not currently have additional information.
This is a Vintage product, so signs of use may exist. If you are interested in purchasing a similar set New, that can be done for about $1500 so please contact us for details.
