This Circular battle shield is made out of carbon steel. Since ancient times was nothing so important for a warrior as his shield! It protected the warrior against long range weapons like bows or crossbows. Equally indispensable was the shield at close combats. Every warrior strove to prevent his sword from damage and hence fenced the enemy’s blows with the shield whenever possible. This is a fact that is often forgotten at medieval stage combats!
Specifications of the shield:
The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
