This is a refurbished go set, with Chestnut go bowls and size 15 (4mm) slate & clamshell go stones. Thin vintage stones like this sit nice and flat on the board, and can wow the players with their age.
The Chestnut wood has a dark brown tone with a showy grain. They are L size, please see the photos for measurements. They were scrubbed clean, treated with Monkey Wax, and given 2 weeks to cure. A small crack from the rim of each bowl was glued to keep it from spreading.
The 180 white pieces are a Japanese clamshell. The slow-growing Japanese clams are beyond Snow grade, with incredibly dense lines. They were soaked in hydrogen peroxide for a week before being rinsed with distilled water and buffed with iso-paraffin wax.
The 181 black stones are slate, and are slightly larger than the white. This is usually preferred so that they appear the same size side-by-side. They were washed with soapy water and rinsed with distilled water, but have not been buffed with mineral oil as we leave this choice to you.
