Hector Saxe Carbon Linen/Felt Backgammon Set - Grey
Usually found in the kind of shops you need to ring a buzzer to get into, this luxury backgammon board is another masterclass in craftsmanship by Hector Saxe.
Swathed in commanding carbon coloured linen with polished brass corners and locking clasps, it looks serious enough to handcuff to your wrist. But inside you won't find nuclear launch codes or the secret formula for Coke, just the ultimate backgammon experience.
Assuming you are the authorized owner, use the key to open it up on whisper-quiet hinges and reveal a striking grey playing field of seamless padded felt. High gloss mother of pearl chips glide along painted white and black points with frictionless ease. Matching black dice cups with trip lips are hand-wrapped in leatherette to resist the sweat of your hand-wringing opponent. A signature Hector Saxe brass plaque offers them the small comfort of knowing where they met defeat.
Whether you are a meticulous point counter or play fast and aggressive, you'll love doing it on this board.
