The board being offered here has the highly-prized tenchimasa grain (straight grain going across the top and bottom
with straight grain going from the top to bottom on the sides facing the players). Tenchimasa is the preferred grain pattern of
go-equipment connoisseurs. This particular board has a small discoloration in the upper left quadrant of the surface
(see image on the top left), so, for this reason, it is being offered at a discount. Other images of this board showing its other
surfaces are available on request.
The board offered here is a beautiful golden yellow. The tree from which it was cut was harvested
in the 1970s in Okayama Prefecture, Japan. It has been standing as a finished go board for about
40 years in the artisan's store room, so it is well seasoned and, with proper care, there is no
danger that it will crack or warp.
Airmail shipping and insurance are included in the price.
