The Staunton chess piece set "Alban Knight" presents itself as an impressive collection of chess pieces that convince both in their design and quality.

The knights of this set immediately catch the eye. They are elegantly designed and reminiscent of the grace of a real horse. Their intricate craftsmanship undoubtedly makes them the centrepiece of the set, lending a special visual presence to the pieces on the chessboard. The other chess pieces are characterized by their clear structures and elegant shapes. This design ensures that they can be comfortably gripped and moved effortlessly. This is particularly advantageous during intense chess matches when speed is essential.

The use of high-quality boxwood and palisander for crafting the chess pieces underscores the quality of this set. These wood types not only give the pieces an aesthetic texture and colour but also a durable and resilient structure. The choice of these materials highlights a commitment to quality. The craftsmanship evident in the production of these chess pieces is immediately apparent.

While the knights are hand-carved, the other chess pieces are turned and then meticulously hand-finished. This guarantees meticulous craftsmanship and accentuates the distinctive features of each piece. However, these chess pieces are not only finely crafted but also functional. They are carefully weighted and underlaid with felt, ensuring comfortable handling and smooth movement on the chessboard without damaging it.

A distinctive feature of this set is the additional queens provided for pawn promotion. This expands the strategic possibilities during the game and allows for tactical twists. This Staunton chess pieces set complies with FIDE standards and is suitable for tournament play. It is recommended to use it on a chessboard with a square size of 55 - 58 mm to showcase the chess pieces appropriately.
