We introduced our Fierce Knight Staunton chess set way back in 2001 and it was an instant hit with the chess community. The name we gave this set accurately describes the knight with its fierce countenance captured by the detailed sculpture of its perked ears, eyes, nose, and mouth. This is a large set ideally suited for club and tournament play with a 4” tall king and a base diameter of 1.75”. Pieces are made from genuine ebony and boxwood and are heavily weighted for exceptional stability on the chess board. Thick green baize pads on the bottom create a soft cushion and allow the pieces to slide smoothly across the chess board. From top to bottom the pieces have a graceful profile and elegant shape creating a cohesive design from king to pawn. We include two extra queens for pawn promotion and a certificate of authenticity so you will always know what the chess set is, what the wood is, where it came from, and when it was made. The Fierce Knight continues to be one of our most popular Staunton chess sets.

The pieces look and feel great. The detail in each piece gives an overall high quality impression, while the weight and balance give a satisfying heft in the hand. A really beautiful chess set that I am delighted with.
To say I am very pleased with this set would be an understatement. For the money this set easily rivals that of a much more expensive set. The Chess Store uses the words âmeticulous precisionâ, âsuperb craftsmanshipâ and âpremiumâ to describe this set and they are spot on! The ebonizing is so good you would have to snap a piece in half to distinguish it from authentic ebony (which I donât plan to do). Also, did I mention the Knight looks wicked! I searched no less than 50 similarly priced sets of this size and price and am so glad I chose this one. Just buy it already!
