My Kuroki Goishi Centenary Special set arrived. 3.7sun Hyuga Kaya floor goban, size 41 Blue Label stones, and very pretty Hyuga Kaya bowls. At 40% off it definitely feels like a good deal. The stones do take some getting used to but I am starting to enjoy the heft and they look beautiful on the board.

Images follow :)

My eyes always go to the bowls first, and the kaya bowls look amazing. Enjoy!

There's a set in this special offer w/ size 46: http://shop.kurokigoishi.co.jp/en/item/927.

Better hope your floor is level... those stones may just roll right off the board. :-)

How long does it take for KGT ships out the set?
Can't wait to get my hands on it:)

Once I got the order confirmation it took about a week for it to arrive.
