Byeorujang refers to a craftsman who has the skill or function of making a inkstone.
Yoo Gil-hoon (born 1949, 68 years old) began his career in March 1967 under the late Kim In-soo, the master of the Sangsan Dam in Jincheon, North Chungcheong Province. He worked at the foot of Mt. Duta in Cheongju, where the material of the inkstone was made, and came down to Gyeongju in 1993 to find a better one. In 2001, he found the best one in the Bangudae area of Eonyang-eup and settled in the current workshop and has been making the inkstone for 15 years.

It is said that the particles of the stone are not murky, the ground ink is not permeated by the stone, and the writing is glossy. It is often said that a stele can be eaten with breath, but this can be done with Eonyang inkstone.
The tools for making inkstone include hammer, chisel, gumegae, furry, saw, push, carving, abrasive stone, sandpaper, lacquer, etc. The inkstone work is carried out in the stage of collecting stones →Wonseok Foundation→Sangsaing→Painting밑Painting조각Painting→Painting→Painting조각Gwangtaeking. Yoo Gil-hoon has a number of traditional tools that have been used since the late Kim In-soo's apprenticeship, and is still using traditional tools in the entire process from roughing to finishing after collecting the stone.
Yu Gil-hoon's inkstone inherited the tradition of the Sangsan Bamboo in Jincheon, and Yeonsu ( 부분: the grinding part of the food) was dug a little deep so that if it stopped, the ink would be concentrated in the middle, and if possible, the lotus paper (where water was stored) would not contain any carving or patterns. This is because if you put a pattern here, there will be food scraps between the pieces and the patterns. Also, the surface of the surface is not angled as much as possible and is shaped like a circle or curve, which is also to prevent any ink residue from getting stuck in the corners. In addition, the pancake of the inkstone was cut in half into bamboo so that the ink could flow inside without overflowing.
The representative patterns of Yoo Gil-hoon's inkstone are various, including the dragon, phoenix, hawk, egg, soup, porridge, Ten Jangsaeng, grape, painting, Ilwolyeon, and Sansuyeon, which are related to Ulsan or Bangudae. The size of the inkstone is usually about 40 to 60 centimeters, and it is characterized by a large realistic and three-dimensional pattern.
