Protects your hands and arms. A Cold Steel shield protects your hands and arms from being injured by sharp objects such as swords, axes, maces, hammers, clubs, etc. This means less chance of getting hurt if you happen to accidentally come across a sword fight. You'll also be able to hold onto your weapon better, especially if you're fighting multiple opponents.

Keeps your head safe. When you're facing off against multiple opponents, you may find yourself having to defend yourself against attacks from several directions simultaneously. Having a Cold Steel shield between you and those weapons could save your life. Plus, it keeps your head protected so you won't suffer any serious injuries.

Features To Consider When Buying A Cold Steel Shield

Lightweight. The Cold Steel Shield weighs only 2 ounces, so it's light enough to carry anywhere. That makes it perfect for travel and outdoor adventures.

Easy to clean. The Cold Steel Shield has a soft rubberized coating that makes it easy to wipe off dirt and grime. Plus, the shield itself is dishwasher safe.

Durable. The Cold Steel Shield is made from durable polycarbonate plastic, so it can withstand drops, bumps, and other accidents. And thanks to its lightweight design, it doesn't add weight to your gear bag.

Versatile. The Cold Steel Shield is great for self defense, hunting, camping, hiking, fishing, and more. It's even useful for protecting valuables while traveling.

Cold Steel Shields are a staple part of any self defense system. They offer protection against edged weapons, blunt force trauma, and firearms. They are also useful tools for training purposes. Below we will look at three different styles of shields.

Bucklers. Bucklers are small shields that were originally designed to protect soldiers' hands. Cold Steel Shields are now commonly seen in martial arts systems. They are light and compact making them ideal for use in close quarters combat. These are also inexpensive and easy to transport.

Polymer Shields. Polymer shields are larger than bucklers. Cold Steel Shields are designed to cover large areas of the body. They are also heavier and bulkier than bucklers. These are also less likely to break. Cold Steel Shields are also more durable and long lasting.

Shields. A full size shield is the ultimate weapon. Cold Steel Shields are heavy, bulky, and cumbersome. These are also quite expensive. For those reasons, they are rarely carried by civilians. These are also impractical for everyday use due to their size and weight.
