A Knight's Shield is a Shield-class arm equipment available in both Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It is sold in armor vendors at Tolbi in Golden Sun and at Apojii Islands in The Lost Age. This shield can be equipped on all warrior-style Adepts in both games, namely Isaac and Garet in the first game together with Felix and Piers in the second, and is in fact the initial equipment of Piers in the second game. It increases the equipped Adept's base Defense rating by 28 points. Its buy value is 3000 coins and its sell value is 2250 coins.
In Golden Sun when it can be bought in Tolbi, you really should not buy a Knight's Shield until, at the very least, after you've redeemed your Lucky Medals at the minigame at Tolbi Spring, which can easily net you large amounts of strong equipment Artifacts, because a superior shield for Isaac and Garet to equip is the Earth Shield, which has even better defense, Venus resistance, and a Use effect that restores HP. If you can't get either Earth Shields or Battle Gloves, then you can consider investing in a Knight's Shield or two.
In Golden Sun: The Lost Age, the Knight's Shield is available to buy as soon as you start exploring the Great Eastern Sea where you can buy it at Apojii Islands, and it is a good replacement to the Iron Shield Piers starts the game out with, though it wouldn't be worth replacing the Fujin Shield with. The Knight's Shield will serve its purpose well until you can get your hands on either a Luna Shield or Aerial Gloves, both forgeable items that can be made over the course of that segment of the game and have better Defense ratings as well as additional effects. If this game is being played without any data transfer or with a Password that's either Bronze or Silver-level, when Isaac's party joins Felix Isaac and Garet will both be equipped with Knight's Shields, which are inferior to the equipment Felix's party will surely have amassed by that point, so their Knight's Shields should be replaced as soon as possible.
