It is still the Knight that enthrals me. I would happily have a whole game set just with these pieces. Truth be told whilst there are hundreds of great chess piece designs, I have never found a whole set where I am 100% delighted with all of the pieces.
The best option might be a set of disparate but complementer pieces? Getting the weight, material, colour/tone of all the pieces to ‘match’ would be a very interesting occupation/hobby. Sounds like a new pastime/meme to me.
