Customer Reviews
Not What I Was Hoping For Review by Neil
This is my second set from CB and I was extremely pleased with my boxwood and crimson Dubrovnik. When I wanted a smaller analysis set, I didn't look anywhere else.

Delivery was quick. At first glance, the pieces look great. However, when I unwrapped them all and took a closer look, I was disappointed.

Perhaps the "economy" label should have tipped me off, but the finish surprised me. It is uneven and the tops of the rooks and slits on the Bishops show a lack of attention.

The shaping of the pieces is good overall even if the tops of the rooks are uneven and the eyes of the Knights have odd lines around them. The weighting is quite good.

The real issue I have is the bases. The material (leatherette?) Is thin and shows the lumps of the wood beneath. The combination of this lumpiness and the material used makes for more friction than expected when you push the pieces. It feels as though I'll scratch the board. I will change this to felt before using it.

Great Pieces and a Tremendous Value Review by Cole
These are outstanding chess pieces. I’ve had them for a couple of weeks now and I like them a lot. I was looking for a smaller set that I could use on my desk and still have some room left over. These pieces fit the bill nicely.

I really like the design of the small economy pieces. The pawns and bishops have bulbous heads that are easy to pick up. The knights have a surprising amount of detail, but aren’t too ornate. The crenels in the rooks’ battlements are crisply carved. My only critique is that the queens seem short; they’re just a tiny bit taller than the bishops.

The pieces are very well-made and high quality. They have a nice, smooth finish. There are some faint tool marks on a couple of the pieces, but they’re barely visible. The wood looks fantastic. I had a small problem where one of the knights had the bottom of its mane rounded off a bit, but Chess Bazaar generously sent me a free replacement.

I’ve been using these pieces mostly for analysis, but I’ve played some with them and they work well for actual games. The pieces are nicely weighted and have a large base relative to their height, so they don’t tip over easily.

One thing to note with these pieces is that they have faux leather padding on the bottom instead of felt. They don’t really slide across a wooden chess board like felted pieces, so it might take some getting used to. There’s a solid “clunk” sound when you set a piece down.

Choosing the right size board for these pieces is a little tricky. They work best on a board with 1.75” squares, in my opinion, but you could try other sizes. I’ve tried them on a board with 40mm (1.57”) squares and that’s a little too cramped.

I think I got a great product and great service from Chess Bazaar. I’d recommend these pieces to anyone looking for a smaller library/coffeehouse sized set with a classic Staunton design. It’s an exceptional value.
