ChessBaron is genuinely committed to a high quality hand carved product. Chess Sets like this, of this level of quality are becoming rarer and rarer in this commoditized world. It's just too tempting to give in to the short term desire for profit and so to skimp on materials to make the item less expensive, cutting this corner and shaving that edge. ChessBaron is making profit too, but we intend to be around for your children and your grandchildren, serving them as we wish to serve you, with integrity, honesty and pride.
