Solid Oak Wood Viking X Cross Shield - Norse Armor
This handmade and hand-painted wooden shield is beautiful in its simplicity. It features a large red "X" design inspired by Viking and Norse shields of old. The shield's solid red oak body measures about 27 inches across and is 0.5 inches thick. A heavy metal disc/boss is in the center, and stainless steel studs line the border. Dual leather straps are also used to secure the arm along the back—one going over the forearm and one intended to be gripped or held. Because this shield is made of real wood, please note that the wood-grain background shown in the picture may vary slightly from the shield you receive (this is simply due to the nature of the wood). The front of the shield has also been applied with several coats of topcoat/varnish to protect it through the years. Whether for the wall or the battlefield, this shield is well balanced and ready to serve.

Please note that all of our shields are individually crafted, and are made one at a time. The color of the leather straps on the back of the shield may vary. We use leather we have on hand in our shop, which may be different shades of brown or black. 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.
