The Valknut is the symbol of Odin, protector of warriors who rewards those who die nobly in battle. It is for this reason that Vikings would honor him by putting this symbol on their shields, as displayed by the Valknut Viking Shield. This round wooden shield displays a bright red Valknut on a field of black. Its center features a 14 gauge steel boss for the deflection of blows and a steel rim for durability. The back of the wooden shield has a leather arm strap for security as well as a bar for gripping the shield tight. The Valknut Viking Shield makes a fantastic functional reenactment piece for any lover of Norse history and culture.
