Chess pieces Ebony Elvis Knight (113mm), triple weighted with tray (32 compartiments)
chess pieces with tray (32 compartiments), type Ebony Elvis Knightking size 4,25" / 113mm
woods: boxwood and ebony
The chessmen are made from the finest boxwood and ebony. They have been expertly finished and polished to a natural shine. Crafted from selected boxwood and ebony this set is of remarkable quality and detail for the price. The knights are hand-carved, and have very nice detail. The bases of the chessmen are from felt. The chess pieces are of course weighted in their bases and exhibit superb balance. They are even triple weighted.
The beautiful chess pieces come with a beautifully fabricated large Rootwood Veneer Chess Piece tray. The construction of this case is extremely good, resulting in a cabinet that is hard to fault. The padded lid is attached via strong chrome plated quadrant hinges that have been carefully countersunk into the wood. Quadrant hinges not only look good, but they stop the cabinet lid from folding back too far, allowing the lid to safely rest open. The cabinet also features two contemporary looking chrome plated clasps that keeps the cabinet securely closed.
Chess pieces are weighted? Double, triple, single. What's it all mean?
Weighted chess pieces are typically more desirable. As a result few unweighted sets exist. The added weight lowers the center of gravity for a more stable piece. The terms are somewhat subjective, but generally, they range from unweighted to extra-weight. The most common weights are double and triple, with the double being very comfortable, and the triple, noticeably heavy.
