I already have the sheesham version, a fabulous set. My crimson and black versions are shipping today.

Don't the knights looks similar to the FIDE set knights which a lot of people dislike?

Looks fantastic, and I'm tempted. I've not ordered from ChessBazaar before - should I be worried about the warning the set isn't waterproof or UV resistant? (Admittedly I don't tend to play in the bath or leave pieces out in the sun)

I couldn't find the place for the freedom17 coupon code.

This set is simply gorgeous! The Knights are stunning and at the same time unique. Magnificent reproduction from CB. Kudos to goodknightmike who insisted CB for this wonderful replica.

@john_chandler Before I ordered for myself, I looked at every chess website for these pieces, but they are only available at Chess bazaar. It's their exclusive replica. Don't worry about CB, for me it wouldn't be any problem buying from CB so far away. They have a great service, great prices, and great products.

@mcostan you are using the incorrect code. I guess it's "FREEDOM15. Use it before payment.“

Very attractive!
