    Gorgeous Product

    Gorgeous Chess Set! The pieces are weighted well and feel like serious quality, worth far more than the price actually paid. I am using these on the chess board my son made when he was in high school, which is actually quite beautiful and compliments the pieces almost exactly. You can't go wrong on these.

    High quality tournament set

    Posted by Thomas Ingui on 24th Oct 2015

    If you're looking for a high quality wood chess set, without the huge price tag, this is the set to go with. Overall, the craftsmanship of these pieces is very good. One or two of the knights look a little uneven, but only if you look at them head on, but this isn't really a huge deal, I just thought i'd mention it. Now, all the pieces have a really nice billiard cloth bottom witch was a huge selling point for me. It's 100 times better than the paper or felt bottoms of most pieces. Also, they all feel perfectly smooth and have a nice shine. Besides looking good, these pieces play very well. They make a particularly satisfying thud when placed on the board. What really excites me though is the weight of the pawns. They're much heavier than most triple weighted sets I've played on. Plus, the tipping point of most of the pieces is just under 45 degrees. You're not knocking these over accidentally. The Chess Store's service was good. They delivered the set promptly and it was very safely packaged. In regards to value, I'd say either this set, or the Deluxe Old Staunton ebonized boxwood is the best bang for your buck. So if you're looking for a nice simple set to take to tournaments or to your local chess club but you're tired of using plastic chess pieces, then this is the set to get!
