The above is so wrong that buyers also disagree which is the correct thing to do.

A simple look at the ears and jaws of the above knights clearly show how vulnerable they are to breakage.

Funny, I own over 140 chess sets, some over a hundred and thirty years old, and none of them have broken jaws. Chipped ears are common, but broken off? Rarely, unless mistreated. You, sir, are a fraud. Get bent, and then get lost.

Of course, the chess sellers on here will say the opposite as it is detrimental to their business. Any wise customer can see that the jaws and ears of knights are very delicate and thin and made of wood!!!! which means they break easily. The rooks’ turrets and queens’ crowns are also very thin and fragile and again made of wood!!!! not steel!!! Customers are advised to practice caution with the rogue sellers who claim otherwise to fool naive customers.

OF course no Chess sellers have posted on here recently.  So this Stauntonmaster is making that statement and making up these "chess sellers" that want to sham and fake real things.

Once again, this fake and false issue of the Knight's jaws being fragile and breaking is completely made up by Stauntonmaster.  I point this out so that people do not fall for this fraud and his completely wrong statements.

If the customer wishes to go for wooden chess sets he must pay close attention to knights’ jaws, ears and turrets of rooks and queens’ crowns to make sure they have not been made too thin and delicately. The chess market is full of hundreds of boxes of faulty and broken chessmen specially with the above faults as well as cracks at the base of chessmen specially in weighted ebony and padauk wood. Players must take extreme care during handling such wooden chess sets specially in luxury range lest they damage them. 

 

The above statement is completely wrong and fake information.  Please only read this as fiction and certainly the opposite of reality.

Stauntonmaster, are you a bot? You certainly sound like one.
