Shields have been the defensive weapon choice for thousands of years. Ever since someone strapped a rock to a stick other tried to defend themselves from this weapon by shielding themselves with a board of wood. These wooden planks developed in several shapes and sizes throughout all regions of the world. The "Rorrik" shield was designed as a round shield, which is the most known shape of shields worldwide. The rounded shield was used from early times on and was seen in all cultures spread around the world.
The "Rorrik" round shield from the "Battle Standard" series is a classic round shield, like most know from their favorite Viking movies & series. It´s available in different colourings as well as a wooden look. On the backside the rim and handle are attached to a sturdy plastic plate, to stabilize the shield.
