Description: Saign Charlestein is an artist who has worked in the film and entertainment industry making armor, knives and swords since 2002. Saign uses timeless metalsmithing skills to produce the finest quality armor in a variety of different metals including aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, steel, and silver. He uses age old techniques such as raising, planishing, chasing and repousse, and engraving. Saign has designed items for The Chronicles of Riddick, True Blood, Star Wars, Everquest, and Heroes among many other well known movies, TV shows, and video games.
This classic buckel style shield is called "The Eternal Shield" -- named for the eternal knot at the center of the shield. It was made from hand-hammered brass. Saign combined chasing and repousse to create the decoration on the shield. A riveted edge travels around the sheath, imparting strength for battle.
The shield has two leather handles attached on the back, for easy and secure holding. The shield is approximately 16 inches in diameter with 1 inch wide leather straps. Saign has sealed this piece in beeswax to help preserve the patina.
A unique and amazing piece!
