    Colombian Knight Staunton Chess Set

    Posted by Justin Russell on 26th Mar 2021

    I can say without a doubt and without exaggeration that this is the finest chess set I now own. All of the pieces are exquisite with extraordinary craftmanship. I think that the Knights on this chess set are the finest I have ever seen with unparalleled detail. From the mane to the eyes. The pieces are large of course. The King stands at 4.6". So if you don't have a board of with squares of at least 2.375", you'll need to get one. I would absolutely recommend the Colombian Knight Staunton Chess Set to any prospective buyer looking for quality hand made chess pieces. Based solely on value I think you'd be hard pressed to find a sets of similar quality at the same price. I am beyond overjoyed with the pieces and at first, had the inclination to put these pieces back in the case I bought for them. But having played a few games with my new chess pieces and after having them out and displayed on my chess board, I don't think I can go back! These pieces deserve to be placed out, displayed and most of all, played with! A truly heirloom quality chess set that comes highly recommended by this buyer!
