When select Go stones, it is important to "choose according to the purpose".

We recommend that you choose the one that suits the purpose of using Go stones, the scene, the Go game strength, ease of use, gifts, etc.

For beginners, children, and for everyday use, we recommend size 28 - size 36 because of its ease of use and ease of pinching with your fingers.
The thickness that is generally considered to be easy to pinch with fingers is said to be "size 30 - 36".
Go stones with a thickness of size 28 to 36 are practical, and depending on the quality and grade, you can select a Go stone in a relatively inexpensive price range.
 If you want to buy a better one, or if you want a gift or a rare Go stone, we recommend a thick of size 36 to 50.
Clamshell Go stones have a large price difference depending on the thickness, so you can choose according to your budget and taste.
 *Go stones with a thickness of size 36 to 50 may be out of stock due to the extremely small number of production.
Clamshell Go stones are completely different from glass made Go stones and plastic made Go stones in terms of touch feel, use feel and texture.
We recommend clamshell Go stones so that you can enjoy Go game to your heart's content.
