original set

with old craftsmen tools pieces come to life


We do not simply make chessmen; we love every minute of the craft process. Below you can see few photos of our workshop. By using our hands and old craftsmen tools we try to manufacture the best chess pieces possible.

It is here - among workbenches, lathes, routers and saws, woodturning gouges, carving chisels and brushes - where pieces magically come to life.

Handmade chess sets are top finished and housed in a box with certificate of authenticity. They can come with or without promoting queens, while you can also choose between traditionally weighted, unweighted or DGT upgraded options.
