Nice finish, feel as good as they look, and good weight as well. Well worth the money.
I play a lot in coffee houses on cafe tables. This smaller set travels well and is perfect for use in this kind of venue. Even though I bought this chess set on ebay at a discount, The Chess Store handled my purchase as if I was a VIP paying top dollar. Needless to say, I am very pleased with the merchandise, and very pleased with the way I was served. Thank you, Chess Store!
I love these pieces! They are beautifully crafted, and have nice weight to them. They look and feel like much more expensive pieces!
