Price: from $699.00

The two shields pictured above (and anything in between) show the range of colors found on these shields. If you have a specific preference, please email us at info@africansc.com and we will do our best to accomodate your request based on inventory on-hand.

These Zulu shields are made by an 85 year old Zulu Warrior and his two apprentices in South Africa. They incorporate everything you look for in an authentic Zulu shield; traditional eye-catching Nguni cowhide, a wooden main beam for additional stiffness and decorative impala hide fringe at the top. Colors of the shields, which are typically spotted include, black, white and tan.

We stock these in two sizes, 36" and 40", but larger sizes are available upon request. This measurement is from the top to the bottom of the shield, not the main beam, which is longer.

These are sold in four-piece sets which include:
  • Shield
  • Impala topped main beam
  • Knobkerrie
  • Spear
- 40” set-$749
- 36” set-$699

The last photo is the back of the Zulu shield showing where to put zip ties to provide the traditional look of the main beam in the middle and the crossing of the spear and war club.
