This Reykjavik Championship Series chess set in Staunton style is made up of ebonized boxwood and natural boxwood. The King proudly stands at 3.7 inches and its base is a robust 1.6 inches. Wider base and superb size proportioning from the king to the pawn exhibits true intricate craftsmanship in all the pieces. Dark chess pieces are exquisitely crafted in ebonized boxwood. All Chess pieces are expertly carved in India and weighted for prodigious hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board.

I'm in love with this model. Designed for the big duel between Fischer vs Spassky in 1972. The sizes and weights of the pieces are excellent. It's my favorite model for me to take to tournaments. It is my main recommendation for people who play tournaments often. (Posted on 3/29/2017)

This is my first purchased chess set from ChessBazaar. Beautiful pieces, nice design, great price. I was pleasantly surprised when I received my set and amazed by the quality of the work and craftsmanship. It was well packed, although it did take two weeks to arrive in my country, but it was worth the wait. I was very happy ! Thanks to ChessBazaar ! (Posted on 2/22/2017)
