For the Dark Souls variant, see Spiked Shield.

The Spiked Shield is a medium shield in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Shield of Longfinger Kirk, the notorious Knight of Thorns. The surface bristles with thorns.
Its vicious design makes it an effective weapon, and its thorns can inflict heavy bleeding on those unfortunate enough to be struck.
Skill: Shield Strike
Use shield to attack enemies. Works while equipped in either hand.


Dropped by Longfinger Kirk in the Cathedral of the Deep.



  • Unlike shields with the Shield Bash skill, shield strike does not provide any blocking frames, making this shield less useful for trading blows.


Reinforced with Titanite.
