Really nice board. Lines are clean and sharp, the finish is even, and the bamboo layering looks really nice.
About 1% of the stones have defects such as a bump or ridge. Otherwise, I like their thickness and density.

it was great! aaaa
Awesome goban! I spent a lot of time considering the thicker boards & shin-kaya, even though I almost never actually play with someone IRL, but I'm glad I got this one. It's plenty substantial for me, I trust the durability of bamboo, and it looks excellent—not like some cheap bamboo cutting boards I have that are all splinters and wood-glue. I imagined it might fit in my messenger bag; it does not. But, it's still basically portable for a game night or something, where I definitely would not haul a 2" slab.
We enjoy this board! Solid and flat, looks great and light enough to travel. Great for the price
