In particular the knight is fashionable, yet simple. The pieces are carved by master artisans from quality boxwood and nicely weighted for a fantastic chess playing experience. They are finished with a protective clear stain. Felt bases protect a chessboard and enhance the smooth playing quality.

Most Elegant German Knight Set I've Seen

This is the most elegant German Knight set that I've ever seen. It's also the most elegant set out of the fifteen or so, excluding duplicates, that I own. It's not just the knight that is simple and elegant. The queens and bishops are also strikingly elegant and are the best designed that I've seen. The rosewood black pieces are magnificent. Their color is uniformly dark without variations. The rosewood is a deep, dark reddish-brown that shows grain and reddish highlights beautifully in a well-lit room and could easily be mistaken for ebony in a dimly-lit room. The rosewood is worth the extra cost.

This set is only moderately weighted and is not suitable for blitz. All pieces sat perfectly flat on the board and there were no rattling weights. The set I received had a nearly invisible hairline crack on one of the rosewood pawns. Check your set carefully upon receipt. Chess House replaced the defective piece with no hassle.
