Criminals be warned.

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

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.
