Greek Corinthian Black Dove Shield - Made of Solid 18g Steel
This concave or dome-shaped shield is made of steel and is shaped like the traditional Greek hoplite shields of old. The shield features a classic Corinthian Dove design, a symbol which was actually used on many Greek shields. The back of the shield sports a flat brace which is used to make carrying and wielding the shield more comfortable. Heavy leather straps are used to secure the arm along the back—one going over the forearm and one intended to be gripped (or held). They are spaced about 11 inches apart and positioned to provide optimum balance when holding the shield. This is also much more comfortable than any other shield strap system I've seen. The shield has also been applied with a coat of topcoat/clearcoat to further protect and preserve it from wear. It measures a large 27 inches in diameter, and weighs almost 9 pounds!
