Do you remember or have you heard of the famous game between Fischer and Spassky at the WCC 1972 in Reykjavik, Iceland? The Reykjavik Series chess piece set is a tribute to this historic event that forever changed the world of chess.
The chess pieces are hand-carved in India from hard boxwood, with the black pieces crafted through an ancient ebonization process. The result is a deep, impenetrable black that is similar to ebony wood. Each piece is medium-sized and double-weighted, providing a solid playing experience. The felt base and center of gravity in the foot ensure high stability and a pleasant gameplay.
The set includes a total of 34 chess pieces, including two additional queens to ensure a complete game. The total weight of the chess pieces is approximately 1074g.
This set is a timeless addition to any chess collection and is ideal for players of all levels who appreciate the significance and beauty of chess.
