In my mind, I imagine chess being played by knights and kings in medieval times. David Austin has created this Chainmail Chess Set for those (like me) who like to dwell in the past.

Created using stainless steel and bronze, this Chainmail Chess Set was made by using 035″ wire chainmail. Bring out your sword and competitive streak to take down your opponent in this pristine and ancient game.

Implications - This beautiful board game would make a great gift for puzzle-fiends and scrupulous scholars. Its unique design will leave the recipient speechless as it is highly unusual and very rare in comparison to traditional wooden or plastic boards. Gather round this chainmail chess set with all of your best "check-mates" for a magnificently medieval time.
