Available here is a custom made Greek shield is made of thick dished steel with a rolled edge. It is concave or "domed" in the traditional Greek hoplite style of shield. It features the traditional Lambda design of Sparta in brilliant metallic gold. It measures 27 inches in diameter, and weighs 8 pounds and 8 ounces. The back of the shield has a fixed steel handle and a heavy leather strap to go over the forearm.
The leather strap and metal handle are positioned to provide optimum balance when hefting the shield. The shield has also been applied with a coat of protective topcoat to further protect and preserve it from wear. This is truly one of the nicest shields I carry.
The pictures barely do it justice! Remember, all my shields are individually painted, and are made one at a time. Nothing else comes close to the quality or authenticity of every shield.The item "STEEL GREEK 300 SPARTAN SHIELD sca/larp/lambda/armor" is in sale since Saturday, November 7, 2009.
