Off-spec/Repaired/Second-hand

This corner handles off-spec, repaired, and second-hand products, all of which are carefully checked by Kuroki Goishiten.

What is off-spec?
All Go stones, Go boards, Shogi pieces, Shogi boards, Go bowls, etc. are made using natural materials. For this reason, some products may present defects such as flaw, stain, crack and/or wood knots, or damages caused at the time of manufacturing and/or storage, and thus they cannot be sold at full price. We do not sell any product with significant defects. We may sell some products with minor defects as 'off-spec products' at a discounted price upon confirmation that customers are duly aware of any defects in advance. We try our best to describe the condition of any defect as precisely as possible using pictures and text. Please order items only after checking and accepting the condition of defects. Thank you.
*'Defects' refer to any scratch and flaw.

What is repaired* product?
Thanks to our craftsmen's repair work on our new and old stocks, as well as second-hand goods, these items seem to be completely reborn and look like 'new' products. After polishing, Go stones recover a shine which makes them look just like new. After shaving the surface of Go & Shogi boards, the fragrance of natural wood can be once again appreciated We try our best to describe the condition of our repaired products as precisely as possible using pictures and text. Please order items only after checking and accepting their condition. Thank you.
*Definition of 'Repaired Product' is the products we repaired, fixed, refined, and recovered.

What is Second-hand?
Different from our off-spec and repaired products, our second-hand products are not repaired nor refined. For this reason, you will find some indications of previous use, such as small markings created by Go stones, dents, sun-fading, discoloration, stains, scratches, cracks, chipping, etc. However, they are a good buy for customers who are happy with a second-hand products with perfect functionality, such as beginners who start playing Go or for customers who wish to buy new Go stones and board on a limited budget. We try our best to describe the condition of our second-hand products as precisely as possible using pictures and text. Please order items only after checking and accepting their condition. Thank you.
(Note: 'SUN' is an old Japanese scale unit. 1sun = approx. 3cm.)

You may find small knots, burrs, rolled-in bark as all these products are made of natural trees.
There may be some small flaw or scratch, dent, chipping.
