The American Series Sheesham and Boxwood Chessmen are carefully carved by hand in a traditional Staunton design. Each piece is hand turned with the knights carved by hand. The size of these pieces and the simple, thickset design makes them a great option for tournament play. In addition, the weight and balance of the set is very gratifying in the hand. This set is presented in Regency Chess Company branded packaging making it the perfect gift option.
