My dad was pleased with the chess pieces he received. He liked the look and feel and size of the pieces.
If you need a no frills wood chess set, this one may work for you. I could have ordered it from Amazon for about $8 less but needed to get my order up to $75 to get free shipping and I needed a no frills wood set, so I got it here. It has enough weight to be very playable, weighed in at 27 ounces. I play in tournaments with an old Drueke players choice plastic set at 44 ounces so I need a speed chess set and this is it. Not the end of the world if I drop one and it breaks or if the weights fall out due to speed chess abuse. Plays better than the uscf club special set at 16 ounces. Good value. I like it when smaller companies can compete with Amazon, even if they can't beat em every time. Will buy more from the chess store. Good on you.
The chess pieces were a gift for my husband. He loved them. Was impressed with the classic style, said they were perfectly weighted. He is pleased!
Nice, sturdy pieces with a good weight to them that are well suited to complement the 12”x12” board I am making out of walnut and maple. Got to my house faster than an Amazon prime order I placed the same day.
