(rare/expensive) Shogi Material for a Collection

Hey ho Shogi Community,
i would like to buy a rare/expensive Shogi-Set. Are there sites/shops that are proven to sell that kind of material?
Real old wood and made of a master in its art. 
The total Prize should be around 15000€.

I know that Nekomado Shop ( sells a board worth ~11000€. That would be perfect but there are no reviews and i am not sure how serious this shop is. 

Any recommendations? Reliability of Nekomado?  
Thanks for your time.

Best regards,

I purchased a board made out of kaya wood at Nekomado a year ago. Unfortunately it was treated poorly by the custom office and arrived damaged. The people from Nekomado took it back without any question and sent a new one immidiately and offered to pay for any further expenses because of the troubles. Purchasing such high quality goods always brings some risk with it, even more so if it is shipped all the way from Japan. I think you can rely on Nekomado but you should also be very careful with customs and maybe check if you can be there when your board is being checked by the custom office.

Kurokigoishi is a great place for high quality shogi sets abroad.  The sky's the limit to how much you want to spend.  You can also email them directly, if you have something in mind that you don't see.
