The French Knight series chessmen are a simple yet elegant interpretation of the classic Staunton design that we all know and love.
Each piece has been expertly turned and polished to a standard you usually expect to see in a much more expensive chess set. In keeping with this luxurious feel is the golden rosewood used to create the French Knight Series. This exotic hardwood is hard wearing yet beautiful, with parallel grains running through each individual chess piece.
Having such a distinctive wood also means that no two sets are ever exactly the same.
Every piece which has been internally weighted and felted on the base, meaning they meet with the Regency Chess Company standard.
With a 3.25 inch (83 mm) king height these chessmen are perfect for chess boards from 18 to 20 inches (45 - 50 mm).
