With 2009 here, it’s time to change things up and refine even our most classic possessions. Take the chess set for example. Even if you don’t play it, it seems like something a man should have. I for one definitely have one, but it’s got that wooden classic look to it.
The Grahame Fowler chess set has a different type of wooden feel. The pieces are made of 6061 U.S. Aircraft-grade aluminum and the board is drawn onto a wood piece. The set includes 32 black and silver aluminum pieces. Not your average puny chess set, these pieces range from the 2″ pawns to the 4 3/8″ king. Available in matte or semi-gloss.
