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 moderate 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 wood.
Due to their size, we have matched these Down Head Knight Pieces with our tournament size mahogany and birch chess board from Spain. At 19.7″ and with its 1.97″ squares, this stunning Rechapados Ferrer board is a perfect battle ground for these slightly larger Down Head pieces.
To keep your chess men safe when not in play, we have added a high quality fabric bag in a lovely royal blue colour. 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.
• The chess board in this set has been expertly crafted by Rechapados Ferrer in Spain using precision laser cutting techniques and stunning wooden veneers combined with expert lacquering and finishing. The underside of the board is finished in a satin veneer that is a different colour from the playing surface of the board. The veneers used for the underside may vary in colour from batch to batch.
