    I've absolutely fallen in love with this chess set seen in this video... YouTube

    Does anyone know what it is called and where I can buy it?

    Hi Stefan,

    I think this is a chess set manufactured by Polish company Wegiel.

    It's pretty nice, I'll admit, but you won't play any better with it.

    So what?
    there are lots of people collecting chess books, sets, computers, memorablia etc.
    it doesn't help their play but still they truly enjoy it (and sometimes spend fortunes on their hobby).
    Chess is much more than competition and mental struggle - it's also culture, art.

    cheers

    That is a standard set in European play. I think the other guy found it for you. They are nice, the knights are sort of plain looking.
