Steel Umbo / Shield Boss for DIY Toy Round Viking Shields and Bucklers
This steel umbo / shield boss can be attached to any board or board-like item that you can cut into the shape of a shield.
Plywood is the easiest and most common material to complete your shield but you can also use materials like foam, plastic, or even cardboard to make a great prop or softer/safer shield for younger children.
-Shield boss measures 6" outside diameter, 4.5" inside diameter and 2" in depth. This is large enough to accommodate an average sized adult hand. Looks great on small to full sized shields but best suited to smaller shields or bucklers.
-The edges are not sharp.
-Steel used for boss is about 1mm thick. Not made to stand up to full force strikes from rattan or similar.
Umbo/Boss hand formed to final shape in our workshop.
-This listing is for the umbo / shield boss only. Complete shield in photos is for illustrative purposes only.
These are perfect! Thank you!
Great quality. Will by again. Great size for a medium sized shield.
Just what I was hoping for, and they got it shipped out, and to me in a timely manner.
Shield boss was the perfect size for my kid's hand. It was about 5.5" across. I put it on a 19" round shield.
Perfect size for a handmade 24 inch plywood shield. Will look awesome once finished!
