This durable kite shield is a solidly constructed shield built for heavy HMB sport combat and it will serve as an excellent shield for any sport or stage combat use. This kite shaped shield is sized for HMB and its more compacted size makes it easily maneuvered – in capable hands it can serve as a strong-striking bludgeoning weapon of its own in a sport combat scrum.
It is made from thick wood which is faced with a thick binding textile which was then painted black. The rounded shield edges are overlaid in thick leather which is secured with stitching and the back of the shield is configured to allow it to be worn with the forearm held vertically. Two crossing straps of thick leather serve as a grip hold and an adjustable strap and steel buckle strap the shield to the forearm. A pad of canvas with some internal padding is nailed to the shield back to give the forearm chafe protection and a bit of cushioning.
Please Note: Exact color tone of the leather and the color of the stitching can vary as well as the color of other smaller details.
