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: Steel Domed Shield

Wow--So worth the wait! This item was on back order and didn't make it in time for my son's birthday, but that's fine, because it was definitely worth waiting for. It is really high quality, really well-made, and solid through and through. I don't know if this shield is only meant for decoration or not, but I have every reason to believe that it would serve well on the battle front as well. At any rate, my thirteen-year-old son is beyond thrilled with his Steel Domed Shield, and his Dad now wants one of his own for Christmas.

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!

Review of: Steel Domed Shield

Man this thing is sturdy! They said it's 18ga, but mine measures .0625~, which is closer to 16 gauge, so no complaints there! Fit and function are great, awesome!
