STEEL GREEK SPARTAN SHIELD - sca/larp/armor/lambda. The front of the shield is metallic gold and bears a red Lambda and red border in the style of traditional Spartan shields of old. A flat brace has been attached to the back to make carrying and weilding the shield more comfortable.
Heavy leather straps are used to secure the arm along the backone 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 tends to be 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 about 8 pounds, 6 ounces.Don't overpay for one of those cheap cookie-cut manufactured shields. Get a stronger and more durable one right here while you can! This item would be perfect for any re-enactment, Festival, or combative purposes. Trust me, pictures can't do this wonderful shield justice, or show the time that I put into building it.
