      I bought this set- boxwood and ebonised boxwood some 15 years ago. Sadly it recently got lost in an expat's move between countries and when I can afford it I will be replacing it with the same. It is absolutely perfect to the touch - in feel, weight, looks, and weight. Very simply put, it is the very best set I have ever had- excellent value, brilliantly executed and each time I used it, a sublime pleasure.
