Guarding alertly the king's safety with a fierce expression in his eyes, your knight is reporting to its duty. With its simplistic features, the knight combines elegance with a modern style without missing on features like the carved mane, the eyes or muzzle. Staunton with a touch of spartan modernity.
The chessmen of this set has been handcarved and -polished from high grade boxwood and sheesham, for a natural wooden look. The kings measure 3.75" in height (ca. 95mm) and a base diameter of 1.5" suggests a board of 2" square size or bigger (50mm), depending on personal taste. The pieces are double-weighted for improved stability on the board, giving them a greater resilience of accidentally knocking them down. On the bottom, a green felt pad is attached to allow easy sliding of the pieces across the board and avoiding loud knocks.
If you look for high quality pieces with a simple yet modern touch the Royal Guard series will fit the bill. The sheesham wood contributes a natural wooden look with its rich colour and veins. With a height of 3.75" this set is on the larger side and excellent value for money, leaving other sets behind in your king's shadow.
You can also find those pieces in an ebonised version for deep black and ebony-like colours.
