Description Item Specs
The Targe was the shield of the Scottish Highlanders. The shield first came into use during the 13th century. For four centuries the Targe remained the primary defense of the Scots. The simple circular design and light weight allowed the shield to be used simultaneously with a sword. A boss and spike allowed the shield to be used offensively. After the defeat of the Jacobites at Culloden the Targe, swords and kilts were all banned in Scotland.
  • The shield has been constructed from wood with a synthetic leather cover.
  • The traditional Celtic pattern has been added to the front of the shield with bronze fittings.
  • A steel boss with a spike can be screwed into the front of the shield.
  • The boss features an intricate design of vines.
  • An adjustable arm strap and wooden handle allows the shield to be worn.

Nice shield, spike nuts are too large June 29, 2011
Reviewer: Sean C. from NY United States  
Very nice looking shield. Great feel in the hands, I also like the adjustability of the forearm strap. Shield looks very nice and has weight to it. Only problem is that the nuts used to fasten the spike in place is too large, therefore the spike does not stay and falls out. Otherwise this product would have been a 5 star review for shipping and quality, etc.
