This amazing life size custom made Captain America style shield made of thick dished steel. This shield is heavier, stronger, more durable and more dent-resistant than other Captain America shields. Like Captain America's real shield, it is slightly concave or domed" shaped, similar to the traditional Greek hoplite shields of old. A flat brace has been attached to the back to make carrying and wielding the shield more comfortable. Heavy leather straps are used to secure the arm along the back one going over the forearm and one intended to be gripped or held. They are spaced about 11 inches apart and positioned to provide optimum balance when holding the shield. This is also much more comfortable than any other shield strap system I've seen. The Steel Captain America Shield has also been applied with a coat of topcoat clear coat to further protect and preserve it from wear. This shield measures a large 27 inches in diameter, and weighs 8 pounds and 7 ounces. Don't overpay for one of those cookie cut manufactured shields.
