This piece features a Vegvisir symbol carved into the plywood, a hand-hammered umbo, and it comes with a wood handlebar installed on the back.
A vegvísir (Icelandic for signpost or Wayfinder) is an Icelandic magical stave intended to help the bearer find their way through rough weather. The symbol is attested in the Huld Manuscript, collected in Iceland by Geir Vigfusson in 1880 (but consisting of material of earlier origin).

The shield is made out of 15mm thick birch plywood and finished with wood staining technique, treated with linen seed oil and sealed with acrylic varnish.
This shield can be used as a decorative wall hanger or as a functional piece for medieval reenactment or LARP.

Care Instructions

Quality. Care. Precision.

We care about delivering quality, artisan crafts to those who purchase our products.

    Shields are expensive to ship; they are often large and heavy. But we want to make sure that you never get surprised by this high cost. This means that we sometimes lose money shipping to the far reaches of the U.S. At the end of the day, we care more about sharing this passion for Norse heritage with you than the money we make.

  • Hassle-Free Exchanges

    If you aren't happy, or decide you want a different design, we have an easy exchange program for our shields. Just return ship the item and as soon as we receive it, we'll dispatch your replacement within 2 business days.
