Chetak was the famous horse of Maharana Pratap, whom Pratap rode during the Haldighati, June 21, 1576. Chetak laid down his life in this battle and since then has been immortalized in the folklore of India. The Indian Chetak Series is our humble tribute to the faithful and courageous horse Chetak. This superlative chess set "The Indian Chetak II" in Staunton pattern, is made of bud rosewood and boxwood. The King proudly stands at 4.2 inches and its base is a robust 1.9 inches. Dark chess pieces are exquisitely crafted in bud rosewood. Because of it's rarity, bud rosewood chess pieces are the primary choice of many chess enthusiasts. Bud rosewood is an alluring wood and probably the most admired wood for luxury chess sets. The opposing pieces are made of boxwood which is traditionally used for white side. The set comes with free extra queens for effortless pawn promotion. All chess pieces are expertly carved and triple weighted for fantastic hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board. Chess pieces have unique collar rings and thick green felt on their bases for smooth movement on the chess board. The knights are well-crafted and represent the highest grade of knight carving skills that our master artisans have to offer. 

What's New in Version 2.0: This chess set features a new improved knight, the carving of the knight is quite spectacular, look closely at the eyes, nostrils, teeth, and design around the mane. The other chess pieces are also uniquely stylized to allow the set to truly stand out. They are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade bud rose wood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long lasting shine. Each chessmen is carefully hand crafted in India with dainty details that add a richness and opulence to your living space. The design, quality, and craftsmanship of these chess pieces is comparable to the luxury chess sets that are sold for $1000+ by other retailers. Our most magnificent chess set yet takes nearly a week to create. It’s a chess set that is truly like no other. 

Package Includes : 34 Chessmen(2 extra queens included). chess board NOT included in this sale.

Excellent product for a good price Review by Kamal

I purchased the Indian Chetak 2 in bud rosewood and boxwood , happy with my purchase, the knights are artfully crafted. The pieces are very uniform in color, there are minor imperfections but this is expected from hand carving.Every thing from previous reviews were helpful. I liked the Ebony/ Bud rosewood combination in the pictures but in reality this combination is very dark to distinguish the pieces in a game.
My only regret is not buying the box at the same time since one does not get the same discount if purchased separately .
Delivery was very prompt . The pieces were meticulously wrapped in protective foam.
I just wish the king was slightly larger , like 4.5 and with more hand carving features, Somthing for chessbazaar to think about for next version ( Indian Chetak III) !! (Posted on 1/10/2017)

Absolutely lives up to, and exceeds one's expectations. Shapes are gorgeous, colors are stunning, and even brighter and more interesting, than in the photos. Fit and finish are impeccable. Pieces were extremely well packed and arrived in perfect condition. Shipping from Chandigarh to my house in the Seattle area took less than five days from the time the order was placed. This has been an ideal retail experience. Many thanks to Chess Bazaar for making it so easy to own and treasure these wonderful bits of the carver's art. (Posted on 12/30/2016)
