Details

This handsome babul acacia and kadam wood chess set handcrafted by Khyali Ram of India is perfect for the master strategist on the go. The artisan selects a different stain for each type of wood to both showcase the wood's beautiful grain and to distinguish the light and dark chess pieces and squares on the board. Each chess piece is hand carved and has a magnet on the bottom to hold it to the board when playing. The chess board folds and latches to become a carrying case with the inside storage compartments lined with padded green velvet to cushion the pieces.

"Beautiful and practical chess set!"

Well made and aesthetically pleasing travel chess set. The pieces are magnetic and stick to the board, which is convenient for travel and playing with younger children (teaching them chess). A smaller size board and pieces, but I prefer that. Thank you.

"bad hardware"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The locking hardware feel off on one side and is loose on the other. One piece had to be glued together . the top board is not really flat and not really straight.

"A delightful compact chess set!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love this little chess set. Doesnt take up much room, is a beautiful conversation piece wherever you keep it, and I love that it is its own storage container for all the chess pieces. I also love that the board and pieces have magnets, so the pieces stay where you put them on the board. The size is perfect for travel or home, it is a beautiful example of fine craftsmanship, and I just love it!
