The Falador shield 1 is a small buckler shield achieved by completing the easy Falador Tasks. If you lose your shield you can get another by talking to Redbeard Frank in Port Sarim, easily reached using the Explorer's ring 3. It is one of the items that are always kept on (normal) death, although it can be lost in the Wilderness if it is not among the three/four/one (depending on skull and protect item status) most valuable items.

Ability to convert the Falador Castle altar to a Zarosian altar by using the ancient hymnal on it. The white knights in the room must be lured out or killed before doing this. The altar can be converted back to Saradominist at any time, recovering the hymnal.
Always receive a mole nose drop from the giant mole, which can be traded for higher value nests
Ability to trade white lily seeds (up to 50 per day) for 100 Farming experience each
Because of the close resemblance to the Saradomin mark it is sometimes called the Saradomin shield (beware of confusion with the Saradomin kiteshield).
Unlike other Emotes, the shield's Emote can be used in combat.
Despite having the symbol of Saradomin on them, none of the Falador Shields offer protection from Saradomin's forces in the God Wars Dungeon.
Since the EOC update, if the Falador shield is kept in the sheath, it is doubled when performing the emote. This has been fixed-attempting to perform the emote now results in "You can't perform that emote with the item sheathed."
