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.
I custom built 5 chess boards for family members, ordered 3 sets to see if the size and quality fit my needs. The size is perfect for 1 5/8 squares and quality is impressive. I will be ordering 2 more sets soon
I recently bought a tiroir board for convenience and wanted a nice wooden set to use on it. The Chamfered chess set was a perfect choice. The pieces are well designed, distinctive, and flawlessly made. I like that the pad is leather (rather then felt), which is nicer when playing on a wood board. The set also has a low-luster finish, which I prefer to a distracting, high-gloss finish. There is nothing to complain about with respect to the quality and beauty of the wood. This set met or exceeded all my expectations.
