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 ebonized and natural 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.

    Beautiful Pieces, however Queen looks thin and a bit small

    Posted by Eduardo Saldana on 26th Feb 2018


    I really love the way the set looks. Beautifully crafted pieces. My only hang up is that the queen appears rather thin and small in comparison to other 4" sets. I compared this to a legionnaire set I own and both the king and queen were smaller, but the queen especially is thin in the middle and looks small next to the other pieces.

    Delivery was on time and pieces were preserved well.

    This is a beautiful set!!! Absolutely mesmerizing. The weight is perfect!
    I've always said you can judge the craftsmanship of a Chess set by the detail on the Knight, and this set is perfect.

    Great Set

    Posted by Brian on 25th Oct 2015

    I just received my set of 4" Fierce Knight chessmen. I paired them with a walnut board. I could not be more happy with this set! The price was great, and the quality was better than I expected! I called my order in, and the customer service was excellent. I had many questions, and all of them were answered before I made my final decision. Overall, I will be placing more orders with The Chess Store. The great service and quality of my product is unsurpassed.

    Fierce Knight Set

    Posted by Phillip Kubal on 25th Oct 2015

    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 ‘meticulous precision’, ‘superb craftsmanship’ and ‘premium’ 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 don’t 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!
