This goban came to Baduk Club from a private home in Kanagawa, Japan. 

The board is a single-piece, cut in the Plain-sawn style (Kiura Itame). This cutting style shows off the endgrain where you will sit, so you can view the beautiful growth rings. The sides feature straight lines, and the playing surface is unique like a fingerprint. This is an ideal cut when the tree is not large enough to be quarter-sawn or rift-sawn.

The wavy growth rings are unmistakeably Kaya, and it carries the unique sweet scent of that wood. Another high quality indicator is the proud shoulders on the feet, which are also Kaya (white wax residue there is a good sign). It has a raised lacquer grid (tachimori style) in excellent shape. 

The edges are clean, so the protective paulownia lid has done its job. The corners are also good, only one lower corner is noticeably dented (see photos).
