This shield shape developed from the heater shield at the end of the 12th century, because the improved protection provided by armor and helmets made larger shields unnecessary. The lucky side effect: lower weight and more freedom of movement!
Our unpainted classic shield is made of lightweight, curved wood covered with robust canvas on both sides. There is a hand grip made of genuine leather and a leather arm strap are attached to the inner surface. It has a padded arm rest for extra protection against hard blows. The canvas on the front surface is primed and ready for you to paint it with your own coat of arms. You can be as creative as you like.
This unpainted classic shield measures approx. 28 inches x 20 inches and weighs approx. 2.6 kg.
