Battle Ready Shields

Fighting in historic groups can sometimes be fierce, and for those reasons, some have stricter standards as far as equipment goes. The Society for Creative Anachronism, shortened as the SCA, is one such group, and for those discerning warriors who count themselves among this society, we offer a number of battle ready to shields to cater to your needs. Our battle shields are all designed with the utmost strength in mind, ensuring that when a warrior picks them up, he or she can feel safe and secure in the knowledge that the shield will not soon fail when used properly. These shields are all crafted from fine steel and are 16 gauge steel or lower, to provide solid strength and defense. These are not just slabs of metal for protecting yourself, though. Virtually all of our these shields are designed with both protection and appeal in mind, ensuring that each one features a unique design that will suit the tastes of its wielder. Some are plain, for the practitioner with authenticity or fighting in mind, while others are painted and sealed with polyurethane in a variety of designs, including new and old world heraldries, mythic beasts like dragons and unicorns, and even modern designs that will really catch the eye. The shields also come in a few different shapes, ranging from the classic round shield to the medieval heater shield or kite shield. Of course, their solid design makes them a perfect choice not just for SCA battlers, but also for sword fighters of all styles who seek to accurately recreate the battles of history. And the best part is that even after you are done fighting, many of these shields look great as decorations, too, so you can hang them on your wall as trophies and displays, too! For the swordsman or the medieval warrior who wants to fight and battle, and to do so in the utmost safety possible, there is no better defense to bring along than one of Dark Knight Armourys fine reenactment and SCA battle ready shields.
