Sometimes simple is best and that’s true of our German Knight Staunton chess set with its simple but attractive design. Unencumbered by fine detail, the pieces will stand up to the rigor of everyday play and it’s an especially good chess set for blitz. Pieces have green billiard cloth pads for a soft feel on the chess board and are weighted for stability. The wood is hand polished to a beautiful sheen. More chess games have been played with a German Knight than any other chess set in the world and it continues to be our most popular chess set.
