This sheild boss looks authentic. I'm glad it came without predrilled holes. It makes my buckler look awesome
I have bought this shield boss before for my fighting shield and it is great for live steel for quite a few reasons. For one it is thick enough and made of great steel to deal with any blow from an axe, sword or seax. The boss is big enough for a leather gloved hand to fit into it. While it is a little too big to be 100% accurate for authenticity reasons, as I have said it helps accommodate my hand with a leather glove on it.
