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 the smallest version of the Fierce Knight with a 3” king and a base diameter of 1.375”. 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.

This 3" king wood set is the ideal size for a leather-covered board I received as a gift 35 years ago. The craftsmanship, weight, and attention to detail in carving the knights is especially extraordinary for a set this size. The Chess Store has outdone itself yet again in offering such quality at such a $$value. Over the past year or so I have made several purchases of chess sets, boards, clocks, etc. and have found in each case, suburb value for the $$! In fact, I'm eyeing another set I saw offered at such a reduced cost that its had to not place an order immediately!! Keep it up Chess Store!
