This shield has been hand painted blue, with an outlined white cross mark through its center. Two red Norse-inspired ravens--Huginn and Muninn--decorate its face. Its slight convex shape and the metallic-painted boss on the front provides an edge in combat, and its reliable punch-grip fits comfortably in your hand thanks to its suede wrap and shape. Keep your shield in great condition with regular latex maintenance.

The Best of All Horses

  • Iarla is the Irish word for ‘Earl,’ which makes it perfect for higher ranking warriors in your tribe
  • Huginn & Muninn are from Norse mythology, and are the names of two ravens that brought information to Odin
  • The Shield Boss--the round, convex piece of material at the centre of the shield--was used to deflect blows
  • Round wooden style was predominantly used in the early European Middle Ages using light, non-splintering wood such as linden, fir, alder or poplar

MAINTENANCE

Read our 'LARP Weapon Maintenance' article HERE!

All latex-coated shields need a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone, which can be purchased separately in the 'Weapon Maintenance & Repair' section.

'Larp Inn Weapon Lube - Silicone Spray' is an easy, spray-on application, 100% pure and acid-free making it safe to apply. We recommend using 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 flat on its back. Use a simple sheet or towel lining to prevent it from touching a plastic or rubber surface to prevent your weapon from adhering to other products. Keep your shield in a cool, dry environment.
