Targe refers to various types of generally round shields between 18 in and 21 in (45–55 cm) in diameter, used by infantry troops from the 13th to 16th centuries. The targe is similar to, but larger than its cousin, the buckler. These shields were mostly made of iron or iron-plated wood.

All the old targes show signs of handles and arm straps, of various designs, including centre-grips like this model.

Its diminutive, target, came to mean an object to be aimed at in the 18th century.

Cold Steel’s sturdy training replica has a thick, raised boss to protect the hand, and a rugged handle that will withstand plenty hard of use. Very popular with HEMA practitioners and Historical re-enactors.

Etymology : From Middle English targe, from Old French targe, from Frankish *targa (“buckler”) or from Old English targa (masculine) and targe (feminine); both ultimately from Old Norse targa (“round shield”) from Proto-Germanic *targǭ (“edge”), from Proto-Indo-European *derǵʰ- (“fenced lot”). Akin to Old High German zarga (“side wall, rim”) (German Zarge (“border, frame”)). However, the soft -g- seems to indicate a French origin.
