This is the classic medieval shield shape in use from 1100 to 1450. A direct descendant of the Norman kite shield, it took many forms and was made from both wood and steel. Our version is in 16 gauge steel with a hard handle and leather arm strap. This is the shape most often represented in heraldic books of the medieval period. When we add heraldry to shield, as seen in our Custom and Heritage Sections, this is the most common choice for customers. This is also a very popular shield for our stage combat customers.
