      These chessmen are crazy good for this price, not sure if this is done through some sort of black magic, or perhaps there are some proprietary machining tools The House of Staunton uses... Whatever the case may be, the detail and symmetry on the knights is amazing. The piece fine details are well reinforced too, the ramparts of the rooks, for example, are nice and thick.

      The chessmen are also weighted perfectly, making them stable and easy to move.

      The board that comes in this combo is great as well, the "Golden Rosewood and Natural Boxwood" material combination for the chessmen looks great with it.


      The casket on the other hand feels a bit sub-par, mine came a little dinked on the sides and a few corners were bashed in, with one side sporting a small crack.

      The Kings of this set do not fit in the slots of the storage area well, they seem a few millimeters too tall, so they are not held in place and will move around.


      All in all the casket shortcomings can't knock a star off of my review.

      Bravo, amazing!
