One of the pieces is not cracked and therefore not covered under warranty, but it has what appears to me to be a wood knot, a place where a branch was sprouting off of the main branch of the tree, that is now slightly expanding outwards as a small raised rough bump. This piece is not smooth at all like all the other pieces. It must have been smooth when they ground the piece on a wood lathe and buffed it out and over time is doing this. I understand this is a product that is made from natural wood, what I don't like is that if I knew pieces could come like this I would have not purchased this set. I think this should be covered under warranty, they said no, which should be a warning to others that this is considered within the 'normal' possibilities that you might get when you buy a set. Be sure you are ok with this yourself before purchasing.
Love these pieces. They were in stock here before any other website. There was a small scratch on the face of one of the black knights, but other than that they were perfect. Delivery was faster than I expected and they were packaged very safely. I'm very pleased overall.
They are really pretty wood and nice and thick . I was worried that they were damaged because the box was smashed but when I unwrapped each one they were all fine .
nice chess pieces, very regular shapes
