HF1001 Fighting Targe

In the heat of battle, an opponent might not notice that buckler has a pointy end.
The HF1001 and HF1003 internal construction features a 1" nut soldered to the central boss. A bolt and washer go through the back, compressing the wood for extra strength.Close up of the back of a HF1002 Fighting Targe, showing the arm grips, display ring, and spike transport pouch.In this view, you can better see the 1" nut soldered to the central boss.

Product Description

Constructed by hand to withstand the rigors of combat, the classic Scottish shield, or targe, offers rugged beauty for your costume, collection, or battlefield kit. Genuine leather covers the front and sides of 3/4″ thick plywood. The black leather on the sides contrasts nicely with the midnight green on the front. The center spike screws in to a 1″ nut, which is soldered to the center boss in the front, and reinforced by a bolt and washer in the back. The spike can also be removed and stored in a leather pouch on the back. The back of the targe is covered with black felt, and has adjustable leather arm straps. A steel ring allows for display on the wall. (Also available without the center spike as HF1002.)
