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 nicely frames the medium brown leather, nickel tacks, and brass plates on the front. The blued steel 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 HF1004.)
