The Chamfered series of chess pieces feature a beautiful, unique finish with a high level of detail not often available in its price range. The Chamfered series showcase a standard Staunton-style pawn with a raised round head and a wide neck crown. The unique rook has an unusually tall neck with a short parapet at the top. The knight piece is the real jewel in this set with a highly-detailed mane and a strong, detailed snout. The bishop piece is slightly skinnier than most sets with a wide, vertical notch and narrow neck. The queen is a standard Staunton queen with a muted crown to avoid sharp edges. Finally, the king features a rounded top with a traditional British cross on top.
These pieces are weighted. The smaller pieces contain lighter weights, while larger pieces have heavier weights. This set is a great buy in the price range and is available in three types of finishes and three sizes.
