The Staunton chess pieces "Alban Knight" stand out due to impressive features that make them a top choice for chess enthusiasts and tournament players.

The chess pieces in this set impress with their remarkable presence. The lifelike knight immediately catches the eye with a representation that captures the majestic appearance of a horse. This attention to detail adds a special visual dimension to the chessboard, captivating both chess players and onlookers alike. The other chess pieces in the set impress with their elegance and grip. Their design not only offers an aesthetic experience but also comfortable handling, even during fast-paced chess moves. This is crucial for a smooth game under time pressure. The chess pieces are crafted from boxwood and ebonized wood, giving them not only impressive depth of colour but also ensuring high-quality craftsmanship. The wood types used are known for their stability and aesthetics, lending the pieces a timeless charm.

Craftsmanship is a fundamental part of this set: the knight is meticulously handcrafted, while the other pieces are turned on precision lathes and then hand-finished. This attention to detail in manufacturing emphasizes the uniqueness and intricacies of each piece. All chess pieces are underlaid with felt and carefully weighted to ensure smooth and secure handling. These features are crucial for the gaming experience and the preservation of the chessboard. A notable extra in this set is the additional queens available for pawn promotion, eliminating the need for substitute pieces that could distract from exciting tactical manoeuvres.

This Staunton chess pieces set complies with FIDE standards and can be used in tournaments. To showcase the pieces appropriately on the chessboard, a square size of 55 - 58 mm is recommended.
