I almost love everything about the chessboard, its beautifully crafted and really packed carefully BUT
when I unpacked it, sadly - one of the pointy edges was chipped and dented. Someone might have dropped it befor shipping.
I repaired it the best I could. Honestly I didn't really expect that at this price level.
The damage did not come from shipping because the parcel was perfectly fine and undamaged,
so it must have been overseen befor sending it out. (can happen - should not happen) - Lets see if I get any kind of benefit.
But apart from this damage - all perfect.
Amazing craftsmanship and weight pictures don't do it justice, highly recommended, but it now!
