Discover the Essence of the Viking Age with Our Handmade, Battle-Ready Viking Shield Replicas, Expertly Crafted Individually to Order, Made in the USA.

*** This is a Display Shield, Available Now - Inspired by Flag of Iceland ***

Please Note: This shield served as our display shields at events during our last vending season. It is sold as is and has wear and tear from our travels, weather, and from getting knocked around during setups at our Traveling Viking Trading Post. 

It may have dings, scratches, rust, and other imperfections from it journeys.

Drawing inspiration from authentic Viking craftsmanship, our 28-inch shields capture the battle-ready functionality and appearance of those carried by ancient Norse warriors. Every shield reflects our deep commitment to craftsmanship and attention to details that bring you a real shield reminiscent of the Viking Age.

Key Features:

Inspired by History: While we utilize contemporary techniques, we take immense pride in crafting shields that mirror the visual allure of Viking shields. We use real pine planks fastened together with hand-cut wrought iron nails to bring an authentic look and feel.

Real Rawhide Edges: We use real rawhide the way real Vikings did to add both strength and aesthetic depth to each shield. We secure the rawhide in place with cut tack nails so that when the rawhide dries and shrinks, it pulls and holds the boards tightly together.

Combat-Grade Shield Boss: Every shield boss, or Umbo, is hand-forged, taking cues from ancient designs. Crafted from resilient 14-gauge steel, they are not only visually compelling but also battle-ready.

Leather-Wrapped Handle: Ensuring both comfort and a robust grip, our handles are wrapped in fine leather, readying you for any skirmish or display.

Customization and Artistry:

Art Meets Battle Ready: Deliberate imperfections in paint, materials, and finish help build the shield’s vintage appeal. Each shield, with its unique characteristics, stands as an individual testament to our dedication to the beauty and design while providing a fully functional, battle-ready work of art.

Personalization Options: We welcome custom orders and encourage you to infuse your personal touch, truly making each shield a reflection of your spirit.

Finish Choices: Opt for a Smooth Finish or a rugged Battle-Scarred Finish, to tell your own tales of valor and adventure.

Size Selections: Our shields are also available in sizes of 20-inch or 36-inch, with slight variations due to the inherent nature of the materials.

Ordering and Contact:

Crafting Duration: Each shield is made to order by hand in the United States. Please, kindly allow 6 to 8 weeks for the meticulous crafting of your shield.
