The Staunton chess piece set "Spassky" stands out with its sleek and elegant design, which is not only aesthetically pleasing but also embodies timeless beauty.

The knight of this set embodies an elegant form of minimalism, presenting a slim, upright head that perfectly captures the majestic appearance of a horse. It also offers excellent manoeuvrability for precise and rapid chess moves. The pieces in this set are not only aesthetically appealing but also functionally designed. By skilfully shifting the centre of gravity towards the base, these chess pieces exhibit exceptional stability and steadfastness, setting them apart from many conventional chess pieces. These attributes make them an outstanding choice for players who value precise and secure gameplay.

Each piece has been hand-carved and turned with great care to ensure a unique and high-quality appearance. Additionally, all chess pieces are felted and weighted, facilitating easy handling and precise chess moves on the board.

The production of these chess pieces involved the use of boxwood in combination with high-quality palisander wood, imparting deep and expressive colours to the pieces. Chessboards made of mahogany or walnut wood complement the palisander of the chess pieces, showcasing them beautifully.

With a king height of 98 mm, these chess pieces conform to tournament standards, making them suitable for competition. Extra queens are also included in the set to facilitate smooth pawn promotion without the need for replacement pieces.

For the optimal display and use of these chess pieces, it is recommended to use a chessboard with square sizes of 55 - 58 mm. On such a chessboard, the pieces are showcased to their best advantage, and the proportions between the pieces and the board are balanced and appealing.
