This Reykjavik Championship Series chess set in Staunton style is made up of sheesham and 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 sheesham wood. All Chess pieces are expertly carved in India and weighted for prodigious hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board.

Simply beautiful Review by Luca

I just received the package from Chessbazaar, this was my first order ever here, and I'm ecstatic.

The set is simply fantastic, every piece is perfect, good polished finish, weight is just about right... the pictures doesn't do it justice to the Black pieces, which have a wonderful darker tone.

Shipping all the way to Italy was super-fast, less than 7 days, and last but not least, with the valentine's discount the price was a steal.

So happy! (Posted on 2/5/2018)

Beautiful set. Love the big heavy pawns. All pieces heavy, gorgeous and sturdy. Each piece individually wrapped for extra protection. One week shipping from India to Guysborough, Nova Scotia, Canada. Thanks. (Posted on 7/13/2017)
