A Square shield is a type of shield equipped in a player's off-hand slot. Square shields can be smithed from all types of metals except for black, white*, and dragon which exist in the form of monster drops. Although square shields are less powerful than kiteshields, they are still used among players who find them fashionable, or players who can't afford a kiteshield. Many square shields can be bought in Cassie's Shield Shop in Falador, though it would be easier to use the Grand Exchange.
