Shields

Shields were the oldest form of protection and used to block injury from weapons. They could also be used as a bludgeoning weapon. The shield could also display symbols as a form of recognition, especially necessary for the medieval knights on the battlefield and in tournaments. Over time the shield became smaller, eventually disappearing as it became unnecessary.

Review of: Wooden Viking Dragon Shield

This shield is Fantastic, it is the perfect weight and is very well made. However to be historically accurate the shield would have been warped with rawhide, or leather. This shield is much more detailed than the others, and you can tell it is hand painted.

Review of: Scottish Battle Targe Shield

I have had this piece for about a year, but it wasn't until last month that I wore it to the local Scottish Fair. I got many compliments on the targe, but everyone was even more impressed when I showed them the spike on the center boss!. (I wasn't allowed to have the spike attached as I walked around, but could "demonstrate" it when in a group.)
The look is not too ornate, but simple and handsome as if owned by a trusted clan warrior rather than Laird or Chieftain. Seeing several targes in museums, this is as authentic as it gets. I wore it with my back-sword and dirk, and was well kitted to be sure!
Great piece at a a good price!

Review of: Wooden Oval Roman Shield

This is an impressive piece which I prefer to display in my living room. It could be used for re-enactments or stage combat but I would not rather have its handsome surface scarred.

Review of: Battlecry Soldier’s Buckler

Initially I was leery of buying this product due to the gap between the boss and the rest of the buckler, but my concerns were unfounded. I got two of these when they were on sale for the deal of the day and I have been more than pleased with them. They are well balanced and the grip fits comfortably in my hand. The grip runs across the back of the buckler, keeping a low profile and offering great control over the buckler. Overall it is solidly built, able to stand up to the rigors of sparring. This is my new favorite buckler and I look forward to getting more for my club!
