Viking Shields, Kite Shield and Nordic Shields
Berserkers are a legendary Viking warrior, but they were by no means the most common. More often than not, the Viking warrior was a battle-hardened warrior who fought not with shear rage but with determination and the desire for glory. Armed with a Viking shield and an axe, a sword, or a spear, they would keep fighting until they won or died. The former is more likely, if they arm themselves with a shield from Dark Knight Armoury! A traditional Viking shield was made from planks of sturdy wood, with a round shape that was reinforced by metallic trim on the edges. At the center was a boss, which protected the main handgrip for the shield. Solid and sturdy, a Viking shield was, and still is an effective form of protection. Those offered here at Dark Knight Armoury are made from equally hardy materials to ensure their strength, making them a great choice to carry into battle, to use for defending your person from attacks. Many are made to SCA standards, so they are solid and strong enough to withstand even the worst of blows. Some are even painted, sporting chaos cross and dragon knot patterns that make them quite the sight to behold, either in your mead hall or in your hand as you make your way onto the field of battle!
