*See the bottom for an explanation of Tough and Ledged options.*
This curved shield blank creates a shield that gives a lower profile that gets out of the way of your sword arm while providing superior coverage to your shoulder and hip. A curved shield typically covers more than a flat shield of the same size; Generally speaking, you generally want a curved shield about 2" smaller in diameter than the equivalent flat shield.
The shield blank is polyethelene white non-cross-linked foam 2 inches thick with a 2.2lb foam density and perfect for creating either strap or punch shields. They are firm, rigid, very light, will last for years, and require no additional padding. These are foam blanks only, and you will have to provide your own straps, handle, and cover.
Tough - The Tough versions of the shield are entirely 4lb shield foam with the same dimensions. This makes them more durable for years of hard use like shield rimming, shield bashing, grappling, blocking very heavy pole shots, and any other abuse you can throw at it.
Ledged - The Ledged option adds a 1" thick inner lip of cross-linked, weapons-grade foam to the inside rim of the shield that helps it sit comfortably on the shoulder and adds superior protection.
