Nearly perfect design marred by sub par craftsmanship. Review by Automap

Firstly, the profile of this set is beautiful. It would be perfect except I find the heads of the pawns too big. The ebony pieces of the set I received have several inconsistencies in craftsmanship.

One knight is noticeably smaller than the other. One of the bishops has a significantly more narrow midsection than its counterpart. A rook had this ridiculous slant (the irony of this given the title of this series) thought its tower. CB did ship a replacement right away. There are also a few inconsistencies in the weight of the pieces.

It's really a shame. This could be a classic, and would easily be my favorite set if it weren't for all of these glaring problems. (Posted on 8/6/2016)
Beautiful handcrafted fine detailed classic chess set. Review by Don - Canada.

Each piece is weighted just right and feels good in the hand. A classic Staunton design.

Package was received in good time but carrying case was split. No damaged to contents except for a chip on the underside of black knight. Can only be seen when one turns it over.

Very satisfied with Chess Bazaar and placed another order, not yet shipped, for a different chess set. (Posted on 3/16/2016)
