It is finished with elaborate hand-painted design upon its face. A large and strong wooden bar forms its grip on its back.

    Pretty decent “beater” parma For starters, this parma is pretty decent for the money. At just over 7lbs. and at 2ft. in diameter, its smaller than many later style round shields but still has a very solid weighted feel to it. It does great in basic skill and strengthening drills, and is quite handy due to its smaller size. However, its gets four out of five stars due to a few cost cutting features. There are no pre-drilled holes for mounting the umbo, you must center it then pre-tap the screws yourself. Not terrible in itself, but one of the screws that came with the parma didn’t even have threads cut into it. Make sure you center and screw the umbo in carefully, the painted linen front scratches extremely easily, even more so if you plan on sparring. Thanks to fantastic KoA customer service, the screws were replaced with no issue. Overall, not many signifier style shields out there mass made for the price to begin with, so this is a welcome entry for any signifer/cornicen kit or more n wieldy sparring shield. Just mind the linen front.
