This is the plastic version of the most popular wood chess set in our collection - The German Knight Staunton. The German Knight is a favorite for club players and used more than any other set in tournaments. The black and aged ivory pieces are made from a glossy plastic and will withstand the rigors of regular play for a lifetime. The king is 3.9" tall and has a base diameter of 1.7".

    Nice set

    Good sturdy pieces. Be careful with the queens though, very sharp points at the top. Will file down a bit.

    Ideal for Tournament Play

    Posted by Andrei on 25th Oct 2015

    This set reminds me of those big wooden pieces that they used to play with on old fashioned and huge cardboard chessboards back in the old days in Eastern Europe.. The set has a very substantial feel and the quality is superlative given this price range. Pieces are a joy to look at and play with.

    Built for tournament play

    This fine set is the one currently being used at the legendary Hastings Tournament 2009-2010 on green and white vinyl boards. You can't get more sturdy, heavy, attractive staunton style set at this price.

    Value Triple Weighted Plastic Chess Set

    Posted by Pat on 25th Oct 2015

    I have recently received two of the value triple weighted sets, one for myself and one for my adult son. The size and extra weight are a joy to play with, the bishops have very nice curvature other bishops do not, and the knights have excellent detail with ears that look good but are molded in such a way that they will not break off. Rooks have good mass, and the pawns are not too narrow in the neck. Time will tell if the glossy finish will last, it looks great now. I have another plastic set with glossy finish that is 35 years old and is still nice, however, it has always been in a personal use environment rather than a club environment. The queen's coronets tips are very pointed and when received 4 of the 8 queens coronet's tips were broken. It took me about 45 minutes to clip the tips and using very fine emery cloth smooth them down, but still leaving them very detailed, they are now great; I am now not afraid of injuring them or myself. This set ranks right there with a more expensive Staunton Hastings plastic set that I have; and has very quickly become one of my favorite sets to play with, it's the one that I am taking on the road.
