    Fairly satisfied with the purchase but some comments

    Posted by Emile T.S on 28th Apr 2021

    I just purchased these and love the coloring and weight of the pieces. I did notice some inconsistencies on the finish of some of these pieces; specifically, the black rooks have an inconsistent finish on the top side which is fairly obvious when playing. The surface appears to have faded tan spot which contrast with the dark ebony color. Additionally, the two rooks have this effect to different extents which makes them look non-identical. If you're considering dropping $100+ on a set of chess pieces, this is just something to consider for this particular set.
