Very nice pieces chuck! congratulations! by the way, the knight pieces are also made of wood, not plastic, right? I think you could write a book about Soviet chessmen ;)

Thanks, Fer! Yes, the knights are wood. As much as I'd like to write a book on Soviet chessmen, but that would require learning Russian, researching Soviet sources, and research in the former Soviet states themselves. Or perhaps finding a co-author from there.
