|A definite buy recommendation. I am very pleased with the quality of the materials and workmanship. The weight of the pieces is good. The colors are uniform, and the white wood grain is pleasing to the eye. The knights are taller than I am accustomed to, (slightly taller than the bishops), but acceptable. It would not deter me from purchasing the set. A very good value for the price.
