Crusader Shields and Knight Shields
A Crusader Knights companion is the shield. The Crusader shield is the first line of defense that will stop most sword attacks from the enemy. The last line of defense is the Knights helmet and armour. The shields of the Crusades usually had the symbols and intricate designs of the group of Knights. The Templar Knights, Hospitalers, and Teutonic Knights all had some form of the cross. The cross is one of the most ancient symbols used in many religions; most notably during the Crusade was Christianity. Medieval Collectibles brings you fully functional Crusader shields as well as SCA battle ready Knight Shields. Most of our shields can be used in sword fighting or re-enactments.
