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.

The black finish in this set appears as good if not better than genuine ebony, and the detail is as fine as most luxury Staunton sets. The weighting is very good. (Posted on 9/27/2017)
