Olde World Collectibles & Creations is an online store that has turned the elegant game of chess into something for a manly man by creating a handcrafted chest set made out of real bullet shells.

The ‘.50 Caliber Bullet Shell Chess Set’ includes chess pieces made from .50 caliber bullet shell casings. The shells have been curled, bent and manipulated to resemble the traditional chess pieces such as the bishops, knights and queens. Individually cut and prepared squares were welded to a steel frame to form the chess board. The light squares are polished natural steel and the dark ones are hand-painted.
