Just holding this menacing shield makes you want to arm up – it screams “agro”! I am not just talking about the powerful emblem - but the entire design of the shield. The curved steel and doubled-over rounded edges make this item super tough. The handle is incredibly robust. It can be a secondary weapon even, producing a powerful left hook. We have however done nothing new – the basic elements of this shield would have been quite recognizable to a medieval soldier. There were several ways in which medieval shields could be held, and accordingly, a variety of straps, handles and other fixtures were used. These varied depending on the century, location and upon the requirements of the user. The high horizontal handle you see here, is correct for this shield, a “door handle” type fixture has certain advantages for flatter, smaller round shields but they can also give a shield an easy central axis to pivot upon (not good).
