The stately bridled knights are the eye-catching focus of this set of beautiful chess pieces with the dark side made from golden rosewood, ebonized boxwood or rosewood and the light side made from boxwood. The level of detail on these knights is equal to that of those costing two or three times the amount.
These pieces are all hand made of the finest woods. The set comes with a 3 ¾ inch king with a base of 1 ¾ inches and fits best on board with 2 1/8" to 2 3/8" squares.
This is a very handsome and affordable variation of the Staunton design. The pieces are comfortable in the hand and look outstanding on the playing surface.
Would look good in any tournament play.
This is by far the best chess set in term of design, consistency across pieces and workmanship. I was lucky to get it during the big sales and I have to say it's worth every penny spent. I wanted the rosewood variant but unfortunately that was out of stock so went for the ebonized instead. I was skeptical with the colored boxwood at first but it proved I was wrong: the black side is just as elegant and rich in dark tone as it would be natural. Also kudos Whole Sale Chess customer service here: there were two pieces with some errors and they were replaced right away without much back and forth asking. I will buy again definitively! Thank you
This beautiful set was obviously carved by wood workers who took a lot of pride in their product. The proportions are perfect and the knights are simply gorgeous. The only negative was the weight of the set—I though it would be a little heavier.
Very good product for the price;I loved the knight piece so I sacrificed the queen to keep my favorite knight playing!
The pieces have wood dust on them which means freshly articrafted and easily wiped with dry cloth.
After search found wholesale chess has the best prices compared with other vendors.
I will buy again from my favorite chess store
