Price Qualityguardian angelI recently bought this shield for mainly display, but also potential re-enactment use. The shield itself looks very handsome. The boss, edging and metal strips are all well fitted. The shield feels quite light and can easily be moved around which I like. However, my big disappointment is the strap, and mainly the handle on the back. The metal handle is horrible to hold! It is so uncomfortable when gripped with a bare hand. The strap is attached with D-rings which is ok, but it does seem to rattle a bit. I am planning on removing both the strap and handle and replacing with my own ones.
In summary, a great looking, and seemingly good handling shield, but let down badly by the metal handle in particular.
Price QualityTT FOLEYfantastic item,feels and looks top quality,its very robust and solid but very light and handles like a dream. one of the things i have realised since ive had the shield is how brilliant it looks in my room aswell as being a life saver its a real eye catcher ,
