With a king height of 3.75 inches (95 mm) these Staunton chessmen are the tallest of our Down Head Knight range. Crafted from selected boxwood, this set of chess pieces offers impressive quality for the modest price tag.

Each piece is constructed from one piece of wood, subsequently making it strong and robust. This process ensures that every chess piece in this set will last for generations rather than just a few years.

Despite their moderate price, all of the Down Head Knight range is crafted and finished to an excellent standard. Each piece has been hand polished to create an excellent but not overstated shine. The black pieces are ebonised: a process that creates the look of real ebony and further strengthens and preserves the wood.

These chess men will sit perfectly on this beautiful board crafted by the renowned family owned Manopoulos, based in Greece. They are well known for their expertise in marquetry and backgammon sets, so you can expect this chess board to be of the highest quality. Superbly presented wooden chess board and representing great value for money, this board has been crafted from quality mahogany and birch veneers along with master workmanship. This has created a board with an old fashioned artisanal feel and look about it.

If you can bear to put these pieces away, we have matched the set with this beautifully constructed laminated wenge coloured large wooden Chess Piece case is also manufactured by the Manopulous family, so like the board, you can expect a high quality product as standard.

Featuring a large compartment together with the addition of brass colour hinges and the Manopoulos signature brass clasps to keep the lid closed, the resulting product is a timeless classic.

Order yours today, and enjoy your set for a lifetime

Please note that when the chessmen are placed in the box it is normal and intentional for them to lay down on top of each other. They are NOT intended to stand up inside the box.
