This chess set package includes our Fierce Knight Staunton Chess Set in Ebonized Boxwood and Boxwood matched with our Standard Walnut and Maple Chess Board. The polished black pieces create a nice sharp contrast against the walnut and maple chess board. Our Fierce Knight is a blend of contemporary and traditional Staunton design featuring knights that are carved with realistic features. The perked ears, eyes, mouth, and mane create a fierce looking countenance that gives this set its name. The pieces have an elegant profile that is carefully turned to perfection on every piece and the ebonized boxwood and boxwood are hand polished to a rich sheen.
The pieces are triple weighted for exceptional stability on the chess board. The bottom of the pieces are padded with the traditional thick green baize for easily sliding from square to square and a soft feel when placing. The chess board has 2.25" squares, the perfect size for this chess set. Together, an unbeatable value for a large tournament size, high quality Stauton chess set and practical wood chess board.

I'm a fan of the Fierce Knight series, they are really beautifully made, the Knight looks fantastic, and the pieces in general are very detailed. I think the rook looks okay but I'm not a fan of the "swooping" shape of the shaft. The queen is also a bit small considering how important of a piece it is in the game of chess. The pawns are a bit taller than some other sets relatively speaking. The pieces are nicely weighted but perhaps a bit lighter than other sets. This set looks good with this board in this combo, but both the board and pieces have a glossy look so it may be a bit much. I also own the Padauk and Maple board from this site and the ebony and boxwood Fierce knight pieces look better on that particular board.
