Battle Ready Wood Kite Shield (IF-423005)



Battle Ready Wood Kite Shield (IF-423005)

Legend
You assume the bandits are going to kill you when they realize no one is going to pay an Adventurerís ransom, but for now they leave you tied up in the cellar of an old farmhouse. They took your weapon. Worst of all they took your pride...but they did not take your uncanny ability to wiggle out of ropes!

Free at last, you scan the old cellar for something useful. Thatís when you spot a Kite Shield in the corner. The dust suggests that itís been there for a while, but upon inspection you can see that the wood and metal rim are still good. The grip is solid in your hand and for the first time you have a small hope that with this added defense you might be able to muscle your way out of this situation after all!


Description
This Ready-For-Battle Kite Shield is a semi-curved kite-shield inspired by 10th to 12th century Normans. With a wooden texture and finished to look like wood grain and an iron rim, this shield will fit perfectly in the hands of an adventurer or infantryman. While the design is simple, this Kite Shield is timeless and classic, and can fit almost any LARP game you can find.

Wear this Kite Shield either left-handed or right-handed with the use of two canvas arm straps on the back, secured through hard EVA foam for a reliable and solid grip made to last. Feel confident that this latex shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance.

    Maintenance
    All latex-coated products need a certain degree of maintenance. If you wish to one of these latex-foam weapons for LARP combat, please make sure to apply a coat of silicon spray to protect the paint finish on the blade; available from any home improvement store. Marks on the weapons are to be expected, especially the darker tinted ones, after prolonged usage even with a protective coating. Spray onto the latex surfaces only, wipe offf the excess, and wait 30 minutes. This will helpt to maintains the latex-coatís flexibility and prevent it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.

    Store your weapon in a cool, dry environment, and keep your weapon flat or on its pommel--NEVER on its tip. Wrap the weapon in a simple sheet or a towel to prevent it from touching other latex LARP weapons, any plastic or rubber surfaces, or another latex surface, to prevent your weapon from adhering to other products.
