Available here is a beautiful concave or dome-shaped shield like the traditional Greek hoplite shields of old. The shield bears a classic Greek Bull design, a symbol of strength and valor. As you can see, a flat brace has been attached to the back to make carrying and wielding the shield more comfortable. Heavy leather straps are used to secure the arm along the backâone going over the forearm and one intended to be gripped (or held).
They are spaced about 11 inches apart and positioned to provide optimum balance when holding the shield. This is also much more comfortable than any other shield strap system I've seen. The shield has also been applied with a coat of topcoat/clearcoat to further protect and preserve it from wear.
It measures a large 27 inches in diameter, and weighs 8 pounds and 7 ounces. Don't overpay for one of those cookie-cut manufactured shields.
