Nicely weighted set

I've looked around different vendors selling this set but the weighting was a bit too light for my playing tastes so when I found this set on Raphael's website I bought it in an Anjanwood and boxwood material. The pieces are niceslyl carved and the additional carry case was a great throw in accompanied extra to keep the pieces well protected when not in use. The set is a tad smaller than the more recent plastic Ulitmate chess sets being sold on the market but the pieces are well balanced and play beautifully in blitz matches. Great job Raphael, I will continue my shopping on your website for future chess equipment orders.
