Hand-Forged Medieval Viking Shield Boss - Made of Heavy 12g Darkened Steel
This premium hand-forged medieval Viking Shield Boss (or Umbo) is made of heavy 12 gauge iron. It is guaranteed to turn, deflect, or stop any incoming blow from a sword, axe, hammer, or any other weapon that's thrown against it. Because this is a historically accurate item, it may have a very light touch of rust here or there, but that can easily be taken care of with some oil or polish. It measures about 8 inches across and has a depth of about 2 inches. This is simply the perfect addition to any shield, and adds a great touch of authenticity.
Please note that all of our shields are individually crafted, and are made one at a time. Nothing else comes close to the quality or authenticity of every shield. As this shield is a Made to Order item, please allow an extra 7 to 10 days for it to be constructed and painted.
