This package includes our Fierce Knight Staunton Chess Set with African padauk and boxwood pieces matched with our beautiful Mission Craft African Padauk and Maple Chess Board. This eye-catching chess set in African padauk and boxwood is colorful and elegant. The Fierce Knight has everything you want in a fine Staunton wood chess set. The knight features intricately carved detail and a countenance that gives it the character for which it was named. The eyes, perked ears, mouth, flared nostrils, and jawline blend together to create a unique and magnificent piece. The other pieces have a graceful profile and features that come together to create an overall cohesive design. The king is 4" tall with a 1.75" wide base and features a traditional formee cross. The pieces are triple-weighted to produce a low-center of gravity and exceptional stability on the chess board. The pieces are padded with thick green baize for a nice cushion when picking up and moving or sliding across the chess board. The pieces are individually hand polished to beautiful luster.
