Olde World Collectibles And Creations Bullet Chess Set

In art. on May 11, 2011 at 11:30 am

Designed to perfection with every minute detail thrown in to add to the excitement of the game, the Caliber .223 chess set from “Olde World Collectibles and Creations” is made from steel and bullet shell casings. The pieces are made using .223 caliber bullet shell casings, and further decorated with cuts, slashes, curls and bends. The kings and queens are the only four pieces with an actual bullet reset in place. While the light squares are polished natural steel, the dark squares are hand-painted black.

The board is constructed from 3/16 inch flat and 1/2 inch square pure solid hot rolled steel, and each square comes individually cut, prepped and welded to the steel frame. The inimitable Caliber .223 chess set is available at Etsy for $510. In case you want a custom bullet chess set made from shell casings from one of your guns, they will happily do it for you, for a price of course.
