Features: This tournament sized chess set "The GM Blitz Edition" in Staunton pattern has been specifically designed for tournament players. The set features a Tournament standard 3.75" King with a base diameter of 1.65 inches. The GM Blitz Edition is expertly weighted from our master artisans and it's superb size proportioning from a king to pawn make this chess set an excellent choice for the blitz play in chess tournaments / clubs or regular home and school play.

Dark chess pieces are made up of sheesham(Golden Rosewood) wood and the opposing pieces are made up of boxwood which is traditionally used for 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 appropriately 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 for smooth contact and movement on the chess board. The knights are well-crafted and represent the highest grade of knight carving skills that our Indian artisans have to offer.

Craftsmanship: What makes this chess set so unique is its knight as it is made from a single piece of wood, there are no joins. The carving of the knight is quite spectacular. To achieve this extraordinary level of detail and finish, our master artisans take a whole day to carve a single chess set. This alone fact separates the GM Blitz Edition set from every other set in its range. Pieces are meticulously handcrafted from the finest grade sheesham(Golden Rosewood) wood and polished by hand to give it a rich and long lasting shine.

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.About Chessboard:

Surprising!
Value for the price is excellent. I put 4 stars for price because I think if it was priced (lets say) 20% higher. (So without 15% discount and free shipping) I would searched somewhere else on the internet. But now that I see it in real. I actually believe it was an excellent buy: A chess board with pieces I can became fond of. Value: The one piece horse is amazing, all men are great. Feels Perfectly weighted too. The guys know what they are doing and how to respect the art.
Quality: 4 stars soon to be 5. One particular white rook wasn't perfect. It had a little flaw, they have already sent a new one free of charge. so enjoy it if you are like me see the philosophy behind this particular GM Blitz edition. (Posted on 9/21/2017)
