The Zukert is our largest and heaviest plastic chess set available with a 4.25" tall king. This distinguished chess set while not meant to be an exact replica, was inspired by the Zukertort, an original Jaques of London chess set from the mid 1800s named for the Grand Master Johannes Zukertort. The Zukert's knight with its old world nostalgic look is what distinguishes this set from others. We simply refined and accentuated its features to create a new and unique design. We applied this principal to all six chess pieces creating a chess set that is truly a master piece. If you are looking for an large plastic chess set with a unique design and exceptional features, the Zukert will not disappoint and definitely impress your fellow chess players!

Large pieces, double queens, heavy, plastic set. Exactly everything I expected and more. Thanks
Love this set.
I like the size of the pieces and they are weighted and balanced well. Good esthetic appeal without sharp edges or extensions likely to break or wear the canvas on my carry bag. Speaking of which, while they are good sized, they fit easily in the carry pouches in my 'large' carry bag. I would buy this product again and recommend to others.
I order two sets Zukert Plastic Chess Set Black & Ivory Pieces, and Zukert Plastic Chess Set Black & Camel; both 4.25" King. Both sets great! The Ivory one as a gift to my children, who are now chess lovers, and the other to keep at my office. The store provided an amazing response and delivery time, got the items ahead of the original estimated time. Definitively to do business with this company, with no doubts!
Zukert camel and black chess set I got on sale was a superb buy. Nice feel, balanced pieces and not to mention, nice size!!! Very satisfied and would definitely recommend this set for chess players from all walks of life. Get the matching sized chess board with, I believe, 2.375" squares.
Alright, so, somebody bought me this set as payment for photography work I did for a campus student organization event. It just arrived in the mail today, no thanks to UPS' incompetence delaying it by one day. The pieces are BIG, heavily weighted, and solid. With care this set will last several lifetimes, and I intend to pass it down to my children. Excellent workmanship!
Love the sets I've gotten. Hard to beat. Especially like the black,camel,and burgundy colors.
I dropped a pawn as I was unloading the set, it bounced once and then landed perfect standing across the room. The set is finely balanced, smooth to the touch and easy on the eyes. Felt bottoms compliment the huge base on these pieces and the construction is solid and firm. Style of the knight is unique, but the bishop, king and queen are big and roundheaded which I really like. I purchased this with matching thechessstore.com vinyl mat and thechessstore.com large carrying case. I will use this set for the rest of my life.
Beautiful set, has become my favorite over some pretty stiff competition (Jacques Replica hand-carved, 200.00+, etc.). Used with the oversized green/cream board, it is large as my peripheral vision can handle--perfect size. Maybe a bit large for blitz, but, of course both sides have to deal with that.
I just received my Zukert Series camel and black colored plastic chess set and tore it out of the box and I am so glad I bought it. The pieces are unique from any tournament style chess set I have seen on the circuit in a long time. The pieces are nice and heavy and fit perfectly on my mouse pad chess board. I highly recommend the Zukert series for those of you who want a long lasting solid chess set that is well worth the price. I am so psyched about using it in my tournament this weekend, Saturday won't come quick enough! P.S. What quick service!!!
