Dual leather straps are used to secure the arm along the backone intended to be gripped and one strap that goes over the forearm. The shield has also been applied with several coats of varnish to further protect and preserve it from wear. This item would be perfect for that upcoming Renaissance Festival in your area, or maybe some backyard brawling between friends.... Trust me, pictures can't do this wonderful shield justice, or show the time that I put into building it.
Would also make a great gift for that Renaissance-enthusiast you know! For more information about us or the artist, visit our "About Me" page.
