Picture this extraordinary Staunton wood chess set in your living room setup and ready for your next game of chess or just simply looking beautiful. You will love the knight’s design and intricately carved detail including eyes, mouth, nose, ears, and mane that creates a fierce countenance for which this set is named. The pieces have a graceful profile and a tapered base design that further enhances the overall look. This set features genuine ebony and boxwood chess pieces. Ebony is one of the hardest woods in the world and polishes to an obsidian black luster.
This is a large chess set with a 4” tall king and an extra wide base of 1.75”, an excellent size for tournament play or casual games at home. The pieces have thick green baize pads so they slide smoothly across the chess board and are heavily weighted for stability.

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!
