I love it!
I love the shin kaya board and glass stones. The bowls are really nice looking and the carrying case is super convenient. Some of the stones are a little oddly shaped, but for the most part, everything is great!
The board, bowls, bowls straps, and stones are all good for a set purchase. The stones are a bit irregular, and the matte finish on the black really highlights any oil. I’m glad to use this set but am considering new stones to compliment the board and bowls.
