Functional Medieval Shields
It has sometimes been said that the best defense is a good offense. This may be true, but nothing defends quite like a good shield, and that is why Dark Knight Armoury carries a huge assortment of different functional medieval shields, ensuring that a warrior can not only have a good offense, but also a solid defense in the form of a great shield. The shield is an iconic and important part of not just the medieval era, but many others as well! And do not let the name fool you, as this section contains more than just classic medieval shields. In fact, you will find shields from many eras here, and all of them are fully functional, ensuring that if you want to carry them into battle, you can do so with confidence. They come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and materials, ranging from small Scottish targes to large Roman scutum. Some of our shields are made from wood, some are made from metal, and some are composites that feature a variety of materials, all designed to ensure the sturdiest and strongest build possible! We have knightly shields, kite shields, and heater shields for the intrepid medieval warrior, as well as round shields for the Vikings and Greek warriors who might want something a bit more traditional for the older eras. Some are painted and feature stunning designs, while others are blank, allowing for you to make your own heraldry! There is no better place to stay safe from harm than behind a wall. When you march into battle carrying one of Dark Knight Armourys fine functional medieval shields, you are carrying just that - a portable, light-weight wall that will give you a great defense that you can bring to bear right when you need it.
