    Beautiful pieces that look timeless

    Posted by S Lee on 15th Aug 2016

    The pieces are beautifully carved and finished, and the weight feels balanced for play. I need more time with the set, but the black bishop arrived with a broken tip which means the trade off for the beautiful craftsmanship is more delicate pieces. The Chess Store responded right away to ship a new piece to me (although it hasn't arrived yet), so their service is excellent so far.

    Review for N.E.(continued)

    Posted by Chris G. on 25th Oct 2015

    ...continuing on my review, the knight design is based in the original Jaques tradition, inspired from a greek knight's head sculpture in the British museum. they're tall and heavy and I love to bang 'em on the board and say check! and if you ask me, they're a lot taller and better looking than those collector knights the house of staunton brag so much about. The King's finial is old jaques style, w/ a tiny ball on top, as is the queen's crown, the rooks have 6 wide-spaced slots as they should and the pwns are rightly proportioned w/ large but not too large a head. A perfect old-english style set.

    Review for New Exclusive

    Posted by Chris G. on 25th Oct 2015

    This set has all the features of an old english style set. I love the wide open slash on the bishops, typical of those early1850's Jaques sets. I would've named it the OLD Exclusive! The pieces are decently weighted w/ a nice feel in the hand at that price is unbelievable. TCS did an excellent job in the extra-safe packaging of the pieces. 5 stars to the chess store.

    New Exclusive NEB400

    This is absolutley THE best set for $150. The pieces are not too heavy and the Knights are perfectly carved. The Bishops give it and old style look that makes me feel like I'm Lasker when playing! I just wish it came in a 3.75 King as the 4.0 is a bit crowded on 2 1/4 squares. I recommend a 2 3/8 board.
