Ultimate Chess Pieces - Redwood/Boxwood - 3.70" King
The Ultimate chess set has a long and storied history. First brought about by Dewain R. Barber and Jay Blem to give the market a sturdy, reliable set that would not break the bank. Heavy and durable, this set became the iconic chess set here in the United States.
We took the set from a 3 5/8" King to a 3.70" king. Since we could not use the lead weights anymore we widened the base a little to keep the weight up. At 3.747 lbs, it is one of the heaviest wood sets for its size on the market
We took our Ultimate Chess pieces to our factory in India and had them turn an exact copy of the pieces. These are some of the heaviest wood chess pieces out there for the size.
