These prominent decorations not only add strength and protection to the shield, but also add a touch of style and authenticity to weapons from different eras. In our collection, we offer shield umbos from all eras, from Greek and Roman to Viking, Celtic and Medieval, precision crafted from various metals such as steel, brass and other steel alloys.

Greek Umbos: Elegance in Antiquity

Greek shields, famous for their circular design and sturdy construction, often featured decorative umbos in the center. These Greek umbos, made of bronze or iron, were both functional and aesthetically impressive. The designs ranged from simple protuberances to elaborate figures depicting Greek mythology. Our Greek umbos capture the essence of Ancient Greek elegance.

The addition of an umbo to a Greek shield not only improved defense but also gave a distinctive touch to the warrior who carried it, reflecting his heritage and culture.

Viking umbos were functional and ornamental, with designs ranging from simple circles to intricate reliefs.

In our collection, we offer Viking umbos that capture the essence of Norse resistance and craftsmanship of the Viking Age.

Medieval Umbos: Echoes of the Age of Knights

From knights with their round shields to squires with rectangular shields, medieval umbos were varied in form and function. Some were simple and functional, while others were true works of art with elaborate engravings and details.

Our collection of medieval umbos offers a range of options for those looking to recreate the time of knights with authenticity.
