    Very inventive. but I'm afraid the comments are correct. it can hurt getting hit on the shield strapped and padded that way. not to mention the bare edge is dangerous. If you are interested in this type of activity check out we put on armour every weekend and fight.


    all the "metal" shields ever used were wood, covered in leather padding for absorbing shock, then coated in metal to prevent cuts. this shield would get your arm broken the first time a mace tapped it.

    Metal shields have never been used. There are only wooden shields COATED in your research.

    Ehh? Please dont post pictures of yourself it just makes this more doubtful and worthless than it already is.. metal shields are not used or usable.

    It's a woman-magnet? Did you do anything to the sharp ends of the screws (like hitting then with a hammer) or do you have 4 screws sticking out the front of this? L

    or use a bolt and capnut,or blind rivets, or screw straps to back of wood first, and then screw the resulting assembly from frontside of shield. Idea is great, execution could do with a bit more TLC. Love the distressed " rusty Viking " look though. But I'm not a babe, so my opinion don't count.

    use a drill bit to to start a little hole then u can use another piece of wood to hide the screws pokin out
