Product information "Checkered Shield"

Your Knight’s Code is one of valor, truth, and courage. You are tasked with defending the innocent and the weak, and today your oath is being tested. Outside of town there has been a bandit attack on a merchant and his family, and it’s up to you to rescue them.

Your squire straps your Checkered Shield tight onto your arm over the weight of your chainmail, and with a prayer to your god you and your small unit strike out onto the road. The sword upon your shield is a reminder that you are a weapon of justice.

Criminals be warned.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Checkered Shield is a semi-curved, kite-shield inspired by 10th to 12th century Normans. Finished with a beautifully detailed laser-cut heraldry pattern, this shield will fit perfectly in the hands of an infantryman or knight. The rest of the shield is handmade and painted, designed to look like a lacquered shield with a metal rim.

Wear this Checkered Shield left- or right-handed with the use of its versatile three leather arm straps on the back, secured through hard EVA foam for a reliable and solid grip made to last. Feel confident that this latex shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance.
