Your Knight’s Code is one of valor, truth, and courage. You are tasked with defending the innocent and the weak, and today your oath is being tested. Outside of town there has been a bandit attack on a merchant and his family, and it’s up to you to rescue them.

Your squire straps your Large Shield tight onto your arm over the weight of your chainmail, and with a prayer to your god you and your small unit strike out onto the road.

Criminals be warned.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s RFB Large Shield is a semi-curved, kite shield inspired by 10th to 12th century soldiers. This 99 cm long shield is hand painted black with a red stripe, mimicking a traditional heraldry design. The rim is detailed to look like iron with studs. While the design is simple, this Large Shield is timeless and classic.

Wear this Large Shield left or right-handed with the use of six versatile canvas straps on the back, allowing for different fight styles and stances. Feel confident that this hard EVA foam and latex shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance.

HISTORY

  • Also referred to as a “kite” shield, originally from the 10th-12th centuries
  • Would sometimes be as long as 114 cm, meant to protect a soldier’s knees to the shoulders.
  • Longer versions were typically used with javelins and spears, rather than swords

  • Maintenance

    All latex-coated products need a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone, which can be purchased separately in the LARP Accessories section. Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone is an easy, spray-on application, 100% pure and acid-free making it safe to apply. We recommend using Maintenance Silicone on a regular basis. It maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.

    Store your latex shield in a cool, dry environment. Use a simple sheet or towel lining to prevent it from touching a plastic or rubber surface to prevent your shield from adhering to other products.
