The French Warrior series chess set is made up of ebony wood and boxwood. The King proudly stands at 4.9 inches and its base is robust 1.9 inches. This is a luxury design featuring the magnificent and strong knight. Superb size proportioning from king to the pawn exhibits true intricate craftsmanship in all the pieces. The dark chess pieces are made of ebony wood. It would be difficult to find a more sumptuous wood than ebony wood for the dark side chess pieces. The texture of the ebony wood is fine and a true pleasure to hold. The deep luster and total blackness of the ebony wood are exceptional.

The opposing pieces are made 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 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 felts, which precisely envelops the base of each chess men for smooth 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: The carving of the knight is quite spectacular, look closely at the details around the mane and nostrils. The design of the other pieces is also highly commended to allow 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 hand crafted in India with dainty details and the design, quality, and craftsmanship of these chess pieces is comparable to the luxury chess sets that are sold for $1000+ 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.

All chess pieces have an elegant visual appeal that blends well for permanent display on a cocktail table. Matching chess board for these pieces is available at our web store at extra cost. Shop Here

Get an unboxing view, but still not as cool like the live view:

Very nice crafted knights, very original pawns and beautiful pieces overall but amazing Finished type: Lacquer (Glossy). It will take care of the wood from oxidation and it gives them a very nice shiny look.

I like them so much that I take them to my USCF tournaments and did a forum for open discussion in:

Beautiful knight. Quality. Very happy. Packaging: All pieces were very well wrapped and protected. All sides of box were padded.
All pieces are beautiful. I closely inspected each piece and could not find a flaw. Very happy. (Posted on 7/14/2018)
