Hi folks. I recently bought a decent goban and I am thinking about getting some clamshell & slate stones. I have a couple of questions for the group:
  • Are there any reputable sources for clamshell & slate stones besides https://kurokigoishiten.com/? They seem very good but also quite expensive.
  • I’m torn between getting the premium blossom grade stones vs. the “blue” snow grade stones. Has anyone seen both? Which would you choose and why?

Thanks!

Used stones are specialty of mine, and I resell refurbished sets at the BadukClub Store.

If you're looking at buying them new, then Kurokigoishi is a great source, as is Hyuga GoBoardStone.

Ebay is another option, and at the moment there's a killer deal on ebony bowls and size 31 snow-grade stones. It wouldn't be a complete set, but it's a great price and I could sell you the replacement pieces needed.
