This is a high quality historical replication of a Crusader teardrop shield. The body of the shield is entirely made of steel and sports a genuine leather shoulder harness for back carry, as well as leather arm straps. Only the upper-arm strap for a left handed hold is adjustable, however; this shield could be used ambidextrously for most people, depending on thickness of upper arm, and armor choice. The shield is finish in silver and red lead-free paint on the front, while the back is done in black to reduce reflection. It measures approximately 39 inches long by 18.75 inches wide, and weighs around 8 pounds 12 ounces.

Note: This item is hammered into shape by hand to give it a more authentic look, as such it has a rough, imperfect texture with tool marks.

Historical Significance
Teardrop shields were an adaption of the popular kite shields, and were primarily used in cavalry divisions due to the slender bottom being less obtrusive while riding. The shape allowed for defense of the leg area while mounted, and the pointed bottom could be used as a weapon in a pinch.
