This clean baduk set comes from a private home in Tokyo.
The board has very interesting heartwood patterns on the surface. It has mostly clean corners and edges, and stands 24cm tall with the legs on. The cut is the most preferred cross-cut (kiura) which puts amazing waves in the center of the grid and lovely lines along the rest of the board for the eyes to follow. I would guess that it is Matsu (pine). It is a good sign that it was given protective plastic wrap on the legs.
The bowls are a gorgeous pale color. They may be some kind of mulberry or maple.
The stones are slate & shell, but were not measured or counted. They look size 30. I will replace any missing or broken pieces so that there are 180 of each color - this will be included in the purchase price.
International Seamail shipping from Japan (to almost everywhere) is already included in the purchase price for free - however, this service takes up to 3 months. You may upgrade to FedEx shipping by adding this upgrade to your cart - this gives your items more room for padding and reduces the transit time too only 5-10 business days. In either case, please allow 1-2 weeks for packing and clearing Customs in Japan, then we will email you a tracking number that you can use to sign up for notifications.
Please understand that this is a vintage item, so it is sold in an as-is condition.
