Polish Staunton Chess Set in Sheesham Wood
Chess sets are supposed to embody the warrior spirit of the game. Hence, chess pieces are supposed to either display manliness or the grace and fierceness of the warrior. This set does is simply the opposite. It does not exude even the basic qualities of a fighting knight. This set portrays its knights in a somewhat academic look at first impression. The knights seem be wearing spectacles at first glance and their narrowed chests deviate, in a rather significant degree, to a usually more manly portrayal of the fighting knights in many chess sets. The other pieces are no better. Their slender, minimalist designs give the feeling of a pathetic formation of units in battle. This set is perfect for geeks!
