This shield boss is made of stainless steel and is decorated with etched geometric patterns symbolising waves. The Norses were a famous seafaring civilisation with strong ties to the sea, from their famous Viking longboat used for raids to the trade ships that carried their loot to the other side of the continent.
A umbo or shield boss must be installed on a wood or metal frame to build a shield. Used to protect the hand of the user, it's the central piece of any center grip shield, such as the one used through history by various groups such as the Norse vikings, germanic tribes, Roman legionnaries, Celts or Scots. From round shields to scutums, bucklers, and oval shields, umbos were used to reinforce the center of the shield against big blows, as well as a blugeon to punch and push. The thickness of this umbo makes it viable not only for LARP and reenactment, but also for SCA combat.
