    I must say I'm a little disappointed in this chess set, given the price of it. I can pick up a cheap wooden chess set for around £10 so when I spend 5 times as much I expect a quality finish. Some of the pieces have a few dents and nicks in them, even the board has scratches and dents. It's a well made and solid set, the board particularly, but with so many marks and nicks in everything I'm a bit disappointed overall. With a bit more quality control this would be a 5* product but I can't be the only person a little dissatisfied. A few of the reviews of the 3" king model seem to have the same complaint.

    In short it's a good solid chess set, nice woods, well weighted and felted pieces, good size, but not quite as 'premium' as the price suggests.

    The board and all the pieces are excellent quality for the price and the leatherette case looks good on display too.

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for a family member and when checking it prior to wrapping it,I noticed that the base of one pawn wasn't quite flat but not wanting to have to return the otherwise perfect set and hang arround for a replacement I phoned the UK manufacturer/distributer whose name was on the packaging to ask if they could just post us another pawn - the response was absolutely brilliant,they did not ask me to return the piece for inspection first but simply said that they would send me a replacement which I was pleasantly surprised to receive the very next day by first class post.

    First of all I brought mine from the high street, and paid a bit more than the price shown here.
    I usually allways try to view and feel the product before buying, a few photos
    does not tell you a lot.
    There's a games store I visited and they had a large selection of chess sets,
    and this set was one of them. They had one on display and I like the set, it tick
    all the right boxes.
    I wanted a large size Staunton style wooden chess set.
    The quality of the craftsmanship of each piece is excellent.
    They are weighted and feel solid, also felted on base.
    There are very slight colours variations, due to the natural grain of wood.
    This makes the pieces stand out and gives a marble effect especially the tan set.
    The folding board is veneer without any gaps. It is well made and the hinges are
    conceal no screws showing. The back is felted and when the board is open up flat
    you can hardly see the join.
    The case is not leather, but looks and feels like it. It's well made and the white stitching makes it stand out. There are three compartments, not sure why
    maybe one for straights. The chess pieces come with two cloth type bags with drawstrings.
    I would like to have had inlays for chess pieces instead of bags, I have put in some foam inserts to hold pieces.
    It is a lovely solid wooden set and more than happy with it.
    Highly recommended.

    I'm not a serious chess player, or anything like that, but I do love the game and chess sets in general. For many years I have just been using a small plastic set on a cardboard board, and finally decided I wanted to get a decent set. I looked at many different ones and read most of the reviews. finally deciding on this set. I am not disappointed. the whole set is well made, the board is the perfect size for what I want at 15.75inch (40cm) it's a nice weight to it and well constructed with a hidden hinge. with some of the cheaper sets I've seen in the past the join between two halves isn't usually very plush, that's not a problem with this board, pieces will slide over it nicely. As to the pieces themselves, they are well made, and nicely weighted and are a pleasure to play with. as to the case not much needs to be said of that except to say it feel sturdy enough and looks smart.

    This is a set I definitely wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a good quality set. I don't regret the purchase and I am sure any other buyers won't either.
