Nothing beats a good shield. After all, who needs armor when you can deflect the blow and not even get hit? At Medieval Archery, we offer a selection of fine medieval shields in both wood and steel that are perfect for archers to carry and use, as well as for medieval enthusiasts to use when it comes to creating a fine archery theme in their very own castle! After all, nothing says archery quite like your shield featuring the target bulls eye! Perhaps the most common shield we offer for archers are bucklers, whose small size makes them lightweight, and therefore easy to use and carry. This also means that a buckler is less likely to interfere with the use of a bow. We also carry larger shields in both wood and steel, as well as in a variety of shapes, ranging from the classic round shield to the heater and kite shields of the later ages. We even carry a few crusader shields, as well as some blank-faced shields that are perfect for making your own designs and heraldries. Even a warrior who fights from afar should consider their defense, and that is why a shield, whether it is a buckler, a hand painted heater shield, a Templar kite shield, or a bulls eye round shield, from Medieval Archery is a great defense for any archer to carry.
Our Round Viking Shield is made from solid wood which has been prestained a dark brown. The center features a steel boss with decorative steel strips as well as a complete steel rim which helps protect the edge of the shield.
There are so many possibilities when it comes to this Blank Heater Shield. You can leave it as-is, of course, and carry it into battle without any problems, or you can take it as a canvas, one that allows you to create your own design!
The Plain Steel Battle Shield comes in a wall display version with a chain from which to hang it or a hand held, battle-ready version with heavy duty, 1.5-inch leather straps on the back. Order the version that suits your needs.
Every warrior of note had his or her own heraldries to display on their shield, and this Blank Kite Shield gives you the chance to do just that! Of course, it is also ready to go as-is, assuming you would rather just leave it be.
For many warriors, their shield was a personal work, emblazoned with their house seal, family crest, or personal crest. This Blank Round Shield allows you to create your own shield, to show off whatever design you wish to carry.
Dragon shields are hand-painted and then sprayed with a protective layer of polyurethane to preserve the artwork. The Dragon shield is available in either a wall display version or a hand held battle ready version.
The buckler was designed to be a companion that a warrior would use in melee combat. Thus, this Archers Buckler Shield is the perfect shield for an archer, who would only use their shield when they entered into close quarters combat.
A traditional shield typically required the full use of an arm to wield properly, and could also limit the wielders agility and mobility slightly. The same could not be said of the Cold Steels recreation of this Medieval Buckler.
