It's beautiful and I can't wait until my husband opens it for his birthday. The delivery was so quick! Thank you
The quality of this product is hands down the highest I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing, albeit being a moderate chess enthusiast myself.
The pieces are beautifully made with slight differences, most noticeable in the nostrils of the Knights, highlighting their hand-crafting. Each piece is weighted, adding to the visceral feel of quality. The opening for this weight is somewhat obvious when running your fingers over the felt bottoms but honestly, who's going to mind that much?
The pieces were such a hit as a gift my roommate purchased the matching board shortly after. A top notch product!
