Kiev 2.75" & 45mm Walnut Board (with notation)

Product Code: 40008

Product Information

Wonderfully combining chess pieces with opulent features and a great looking Walnut Chess Board makes this gorgeous set. It makes for the perfect compromise of good looks on a small space.

The small 2.75" Sheesham Pieces make best use of the space on the boards by providing some gentle boldness. What lacks them in height, they outweigh in width. The king brings just over 20g up on the scale and for added stability the pieces are all weighted. The pieces are all handmade and polished to give them their smooth appearance. A green felt pad protects the board from scratches.

As for the board, it has a 45mm square size and is thus ideally suited to accommodate the 2.75" Kiev chess pieces. The overall dimensions are 44 x 44 cm with a thickness of 13mm. Being made of veneer keeps helping to decrease both weight and price while still not compromising on the classic look of real wood. It weighs around 1.7kg. An alphanumeric notation is printed around the play area which is helpful should you wish to record your game on paper.

When a traditional wooden Staunton Chess Set is looked for but set up space is limited, then this set is ideal with its smaller sized board and matching chess pieces. The proportions are well balanced and making play great fun – even in case your game doesn't develop as well as you wished for. Your perfect companion at a great price.
