This is a repaired board, carefully shaved and marked by long-experienced craftsman Mr.Keij Miwa.
The lines of a board are marked using Tachi-mori, the skill of drawing lines using a Japanese sword. This traditional technique highlights the beauty of natural grain patterns and the texture of lacquered line is smooth and has also a nice feeling.
It looks as same as a brand-new board as entire surface is re-shaved and lines are newly marked.
