Crusader Shields and Knights Shields

When it came to defense in battle, many crusaders turned to the shield to help keep them safe from their enemies attacks. And here at Dark Knight Armoury, we carry a number of recreations from that era, ensuring that when you want to look and feel very much like the warriors of old, you can arm yourself with a crusade shield that one would have gladly carried into combat! In terms of defense, shields are advantageous for many reasons. Of particular note was their versatility, as a shield allowed a crusader to bring defense wherever it was needed, allowing them to favor weaker areas and fill in gaps in their defense, while also using the shield as a wall to push and bash with, opening up more chances to attack and counter their enemy. Another reason the shield was so popular had to be the environment. Crusaders ventured into new climes, sometimes into deserts and arid regions, and too much armor could be the death of a warrior if the heat was too much. The shield allowed a bit of lighter armor, without sacrificing additional defense. They were also sometimes identifying marks for a warrior to bear, possessing unique designs, either distinctive to that warrior or to the order they served in. The shields offered here do not break from that tradition, and many are emblazoned with crosses, heraldries, and knightly emblems, to better make them look and feel like artifacts from the Crusades era! Many of the mare also fully functional, too, which means if you want to do battle, you could not ask for a better defense than one of Dark Knight Armourys crusade shields. And when you are done battling, sparring, and fighting, they are great for carrying and displaying, too.
