Jobst Blachy
Not great.

They arrived dusty/dirty and the finish was not great quality. But the most disappointing thing was that the felt on the bottoms was bright green, not black as in the pictures. Chess House was great about taking them back, no questions asked.

Very Pleased

I am very pleased with my order and the customer service.

Stephen Jensen
Just what I was looking for...

The pieces are beautifully crafted, well weighted, and the finish impeccably even in color and touch. I'm very happy with my purchase, and ChessHouse was great throughout the process.

Savanni Dgerinel
Nice style, but needs more differentiation

I was getting this as part of the chess set that will follow me through the rest of my life. I liked this particular group of chessmen because it was the only set that fit nicely in the space between extremely stuffy traditional and absurdly silly. However, in some games I have found that my opponents get a little confused because the knights are basically tall pawns and short queens, and the slanted top that differentiates a knight from a bishop actually kind of disappears on a game in progress.

I may choose to replace this set of chessmen with a different one in the future if I find something else that captures the minimalist style but has more clearly differentiated pieces.
