Chess pieces Karel de Grote (95mm), extra weighted with luxury box
chess pieces with luxury case, type Karel de Groteking size 3,75" / 95mm
design: Classic Staunton,
woods: palisander and boxwood
The chessmen are made from the finest palisander and boxwood. They have been expertly finished and polished to a natural shine. No lacquer is used to create this amazing finish, it's the hand polishing of the dense hard woods that have created such an amazing finish. The knights are hand-carved, and have very nice detail. The bases of the chessmen are from leather. The chess pieces are of course weighted in their bases and exhibit superb balance. They are even extra weighted.
Chess piesen 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.
The beautiful chess pieces come with a chess box. The box is lined with a soft material to protect the pieces and includes a removable center divider so that you can separate the colors if you choose. The best chess box available, comes with the pieces!
For some extra money the tray with 32 compartiments for chess pieces is availiable.
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.
