With a Staunton pieces, "all else being equal" actually takes on some meaning there is one piece that is the measure; How well they make the Knights. They're only piece carved and not slipped in between the centres on a lathe. If the knights are good in a Staunton set you on a good thing. Unfortunately some quite expensive sets I wont name have chipped pieces called Knights that would make old Howard turn in his grave. The Knights in this set of pieces though are the goods. They're great, and the turned pieces have nothing to complain about either. They look great on a 50cm battleground and you might even squeeze them in on a 40. I did and didn't think they looked bad at all on that either. I'm glad I bought this set of pieces, and personally prefer them to other more expensive ones.
