Very Sturdy and Weighty. Hammer marks is visible around the dome, the color is authentic. It is also $5 less expensive than the horrible shiny types. You are able to tell whenever you pick this up this is actually the real thing.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By Jon R. Wells on October 12, 2014
It was of great importance and greater quality than we expected. Their focus on detail was excellent. It had been just like described within the advertisement and It had been shipped rapidly. My daughter is making as authentic as you possibly can cosplay dating to Medieval Europe. Linen not muslin, simply because they had flax not cotton. No sword on her an ax or pike for that common man from the ranks. Solid laminated oak shield, Not plywood. This shield “boss” was perfect. Now we simply need to consume the eleven dozen hands-forged nails we've leftover needed to purchase a gross.

By Andrew on August 28, 2014
Very little to complain about. I had been searching for any robust workmanlike shield boss for any Viking shield I had been making and it was it. Having a 5" inside diameter, it really is enough in my hands, and I possibly could put on a glove too you could likely put on an armored gauntlet. It comes down pretty greasy/oiled--I scrubbed everything off before mounting, to ensure that I would not have any accidentally on my small clothes or even the like. It had been a little tiresome but I have faith that they made it happen for upkeep purposes.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By Frederick M Spicer on This summer 31, 2015
This shield boss/umbo is sturdy and well built. I probably have about it's durability, and the form and dimension is good. It'll do its job well. However it loses some things for that finish. It does not look as nice because the example pictured, and it came covered in rust. to become obvious, it's certainly not hands forged. It appears to possess been placed, and then someone lazily made hammer marks having a ball pein hammer inside a spiral round the dome, then required out their aggressions around the flange kind of at random. The end result almost looks hands forged, From the distance. cracks and scratches within the finish aren't actually an issue for me personally, but they reveal the metal was finished before developing instead of after. In comparison, the advantage continues to be roughly ground fit and left incomplete, rough and shiny. I'm going to break the advantage having a file or risk getting cut. And burrs were hastily taken off the rear side from the holes having a grinder, but you will not see individuals when it is in position.
Overall, a great shield boss. It'll do its job and continue for a very long time. Use will hide the issues if you do not look too carefully. I simply wish I did not need to finish taking out the burrs myself. And also the cost can be a little high for something so simple, especially because it wasn't really hands forged.

By Chris on This summer 20, 2014
I desired someone else in charge in my practice shields and for that cost they are awesome. They are constructed with a pleasant heavy steel having a couple of dimples for excellent finish. For that cost you cannot fail! shipping was quick. I suggest.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

by h.r. Lowe on March 19, 2015
I purchased this for SCA fighting and it is always good! it's produced from hefty 12 gauge steel and is nigh on indestructible. It is just down side is it is around the small side. For those who have big hands or put on bulky gauntlets then make sure the scale before ordering. Apart from that it is a great boss in a great cost.Comment Was this review useful for you?
