Hello. I would like to order your "Large Viking Shield with Leather Exterior", but not found on the website delivery to Russia. You are making a delivery to Russia?
Hi Eva, yes we ship to Russia
can you do a 80 cm viking shield and if so how much would it cost
Yes, such modification is possible and free of charge. :) Please place your order on our website and just mention in the comments to the order the changes you want to get.
How was the shield constructed? Was it done traditionally with with planks and the 2 on the back side with the center grip? Or a different way?
The shield is made of 1 layer of 10 mm thick plywood, the rim is protected with a layer of rubber. Also the shild is covered with a 4-6 mm thick leather
A beautiful shield with a tragic flaw - that mirrored boss has to go. Any way you can lose the larp boss & use a hammered one - the rest of the shield is nice albeit a bit "perfect" if you get my meaning - still usable except for the obviously machine spun & buffed boss - thanks
Non-buffed boss without any polishing will corrode. We are convinced that the metal details should to be buffed and polished, to extend the life of the product.
How long does the leather last in SCA combat? Has it been/could it be treated with something to add longevity to it?
In our experience, any shield comes into disrepair after six months of intensive trainings. The fact is that the shields were always consumable. You may polish the shield with wax or fat-liquor it to make the leather firmer or more elastic respectively, but this will increase the weight of the shield.
Dear Sir, Is it possible to buy the boss of the Viking shield with leather exterior separately? And if so how much is it? Best regards, Roberto
The boss is available separately for $94 + $16 (shipping) upon request. Please note, manufacturing takes about 14-16 days. If this works for you, we can send an invoice for the order directly to your PayPal email.
