    A nice bit of Europe for tournament play

    The German Knight set is a wonderful set and of the type I had been searching for. The USCF and its various sets is committed to the traditional Staunton look, and other vendors seem to push almost completely toward Staunton/staunton-esque sets OR reproductions of various sets from the Soviet Union era. The German Knight sets that I could find were primarily from Europe and quite expensive. The Chess House model is (I think) quite affordable in comparison and is very good looking. Other than the Knight (with the curved back of the German kt model) has the Staunton characteristics. Well made, with a good heft to them. I suggest this is a set that will serve you well either set up for permanent use or decoration in your home or as your go to tournament set.

    Order wasn't as expected.

    I did not receive what was actually ordered. The order was complete but I placed an order for Ebonized pieces but clearly was shipped mahogany. I am not satisfied. I have not used them as they are a gift for my son away at college. I wished I was consulted in advance. A resolution to return and get shipped what I ordered would be nice.
