    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    shields

    Since the last Dog Brothers gathering, I've been pretty excited and have been scheming about something new I could bring to the table for the next one (even though its a long way off). Anyway, I've been looking into getting a rattan shield that's suitable for sparring, as most of them I've come across look like they're for forms and display only. Any thoughts?

    I'm also working on a kris, and am looking for a good wood to carve a handle out of. I was thinking of using a piece of kamagong, but I hear its hard to work with. Ideas?

    Do it!

    I dunno you could probably carve one if you're handy in a shop.

    Hit up the Dog Brothers UK site. At the first Euro gathering, I know a bunch of them did some shield and sword fights. They might have some ideas on good material to work with. Also, get some input from some of the WMA folks on what they use to spar. Hope to see you at the next gathering.

    I got a old german police riot shield. It's round and just better than those wicker basket shields. Good luck finding one, mine was surplus.
