Crafted from selected boxwood, this set of chess pieces offers remarkable quality for the price.
Each chess piece is crafted from one section of wood making it strong and robust. This process ensures that every chess piece in this set will last for generations.
Despite their great price, all of the Down Head Knight range is crafted and finished to an excellent standard. Each piece has been hand polished to a medium gloss finish, creating an excellent but not overstated shine. Ebonisation is used create the black pieces: this is a process that creates the look of real ebony and further strengthens and preserves the boxwood.
This board is produced by the reputable family Manopoulos based in Greece and is a superbly presented wooden chess board that represents great value for money. Quality mahogany and birch veneers along with master craftsmanship have produced a board with an old-fashioned artisanal feel and look about it. A perfect playing area for our 3″ Down Head Ebonised Chess Men.
To keep your chess men safe when not in play, we have added a high quality fabric bag in a lovely rich burgundy. Drawstrings will keep the pieces together.
The high quality of the products in this chess set combination makes it exceptionally good value for money. It is perfect as a gift, or why not treat yourself.
