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". The pieces are nicely weighted for exceptional stability on the chess board and we include 2 extra queens for pawn promotion.

    They’ve got some heft to them!

    Posted by Mike Sanders on 23rd Feb 2022

    Pieces are of great quality and feel substantial in your hand, and the look great on the board. However, I have a chess table and the squares are only 1.75” rather than standard 2.25” so the pieces get crowded and it’s more difficult to see the board well. Perhaps it’s a good tip for The Chess Store to add the recommended board/square size to the piece selections for those new to chess who might not recognize there are various board sizes. Obviously I could have measured, but it never occurred to me until I opened the box. Nonetheless, the pieces are awesome and my 8 yr old son loves them.

    Excellent Quality!

    This chess set is a perfect large size. The pieces have a nice weight and heft to them and are high quality with felt bottoms. They are perfect for my large game table that has a large chess board.

    I bought these pieces with the intention of replacing my old chess pieces. They are beautiful. I'm so glad I bought them here at The Chess Store because the pieces were cheaper than the ones that I found on Amazon. I highly recommend these Chess pieces.

    Great Chess Set

    Posted by Howard T. Whalen, Jr. on 25th Oct 2017

    I ordered the professional plastic chess set with 4 1/8 King. It was everything I was expecting and came with extra Queens and is triple weighted . It is a great looking set. Thanks for selling at a great price.

    Heavy solid pieces

    Posted by M. Garret on 7th Feb 2017

    The ivory colorway perfectly compliments the colour of the vinyl green and buff board. I had to sand the queen's (crown?) with sandpaper; but other than that, its amazing. Extra queens were a nice gesture.

    exceptional value

    Posted by Wiliam on 23rd Dec 2016

    This set is as handsome as it is nice. The pieces are bold and have a weighty appearance. The pieces are appropriately weighted and are nice to move. The size of the pieces are a little larger than "normal" pieces, but not too large to be a distraction. Highly recommend this set. The comments about the queens points are correct, but it took me about 2 minutes to file the crowns down and they look even better with the filed crowns.
