The Chess Store Australia is proud to introduce our Latest Masterpiece Exclusive – The Templar Knights Staunton Luxury Chess Set.
This prestige set features a very unique Templar Knight that is both unusual yet traditional, each piece is intricately hand-carved for over two days by a master craftsman. Every piece has been designed to compliment the intricate and appealing Knight design, which rightly steals the show. The Kings have the Knights Templar King George Cross and by 1188, the English and French troops of Phillip II of France and Henry II of England, proudly displayed it, as part of their tunic. It became a symbol, worn by many troops, announcing they be warriors fighting crusades in the Holy Land.
The Tournament Standard Chess pieces have a traditional Staunton design and are crafted from Premium Grade Rosewood and Ivory Boxwood and elegantly finished by the best master craftsmen of the world. This exquisite design forms one of the more elegant chess sets in our collection. The King measures 108mm (4.25") with a base diameter of 45mm (1.75") all the pieces are Heavy Weighted with luxurious billiard cloth base pads, and each set consists of 34 Chessmen including 2 Free Extra Queens.
