This Board is China grown Hon Kaya made Masame 6.9-Sun (about 209 mm thick) Go board with legs *Off-spec.

The lines of a board are marked using Tachi-mori, the skill of drawing lines using a Japanese sword. This traditional technique highlights the beauty of natural grain patterns and the texture of lacquered line is smooth and has also a nice feeling.

This board's Kidori (Cutting Style of Wood) is "Masame". Masame is made of high grade cutting style and beautiful wood grain.

There is some color unevenness on the top, but it is a beautiful board with fine wood grain.

The one cutting side has a closed crack and a fixed tar spot.
The top and one cutting side has wood-derived some spots.
The bottom and side has some intergrown knots.
Please check the photo images.
All Go stones, Go boards, Shogi pieces, Shogi boards, Go bowls, etc. are made using natural materials.

*'Defects' refer to any scratch and flaw.

Kaya is regarded as one of the best materials to make Go and Shogi boards, because of its good sound and feel when placing the stones, moderate elasticity, beautiful grain, color, gloss and luster, and aroma.
There are three types of kaya trees: "Hyuga kaya" which is grown and harvested in a mountainous area in the southern part of Kyushu, Japan, "Japanese-grown honkaya" which is grown in other areas of Japan, and "Chinese-grown honkaya" which is mainly grown in Yunnan Province, China. Generally, Japanese-grown honkaya is said to be better than Chinese honkaya in terms of quality.
Chinese kaya tends to be less valued than Japanese kaya due to its reddish wood color, wood quality, and rarity, but this material is often sold at a relatively affordable price for a high-quality board.
