The Burnt Reykjavik II Series Chess Set, Box, & Board
Model Name: BURNTREYCOMBO2
A full tournament-sized Chess set, it features a 3.75″ King with a 1.6″ diameter base. The Chess pieces are hand carved by master artisans and crafted out of high grade woods. The pieces are burnt to give them an extremely dark color, and features a beautiful glossy finish to further accentuate the details. The Chess pieces are heavily weighted with luxurious billiard cloth base pads and a beautiful finish. The design of the Reykjavik II Chess set is an exact reproduction of the Chess set used by the legendary American Grand master Bobby Fischer when he won the 1972 World Chess Championship against the reigning World Champion Grand master Boris Spassky in Reykjavik, Iceland. The Chess set has been designed to withstand years of use (and abuse), as it lacks many of the ornate details commonly found on Chess Sets that can be susceptible to damage in the heat of battle. For example, the Chess set features reinforced Pawn collars and oversized Rook ramparts for unmatched durability. The Reykjavik II Series Chess set is ideal for those that are interested in both the historical importance of the game of Chess, as well as those looking for an attractive Chess set that is both economical and durable.
The Reykjavik II Series Chessmen exemplifies a perfect combination of distinct beauty and functionality. It has been designed to withstand the rigors of practical play while maintaining an elegance which has become the hallmark of a Staunton chess set. The design, quality and craftsmanship of this set is UNMATCHED by any set of Chessmen in its price range.
