Dark chess pieces are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade bud rosewood. We then polished them in high gloss lacquer which gives the chess pieces a smooth shining surface. Because of its rarity, bud rosewood chess pieces are the primary choice of many chess enthusiasts. Bud rose wood 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 the white side. It is one of the fairly easy woods to work with and shows off aesthetic detail. The set comes with free extra queens for effortless pawn promotion. All chess pieces are expertly carved and weighted for fantastic hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board. King, Queens, Bishops, and Pawns have unique collar rings and thick green felts, which precisely envelops the base of each chessmen for smooth movement on the chess board. The lathe work on each chess piece is noteworthy, especially the unique rings and elegant curves.
Design Inspiration: The knight of this chess set is inspired by the sword of the legendary King Arthur. The sweeping mane and distinctive head shape give the knight aggressive and ready-to-attack look.
Craftsmanship: Did you notice? All chess pieces have handmade dotted lines at the bottom of the shank, for an elegant look. The carving and the design of the knight are quite spectacular, look closely at the eyes, nostrils, teeth and, craftsmanship around the mane. The design of the other pieces is also highly outstanding that allows the set to truly stand out. They are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade ebony wood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long-lasting shine. Each chessmen is carefully handcrafted in India and takes some influences from the Pegasus Series. Superb size proportioning from king to the pawn exhibits true intricate craftsmanship in all the pieces. The design, quality, and craftsmanship of these chess pieces are comparable to the luxury chess sets that are sold for $3000+ by other retailers.
Uniformity of pieces: The shapes of turned pieces are guided by metal profiles and so all turned pieces are identical, especially the pawns. You can expect some variation where hand carving or cutting comes i.e. knights.
