A Half-Shard is a type of Augmenter fabrial, a shield rightfully claimed by their creators to be capable of blocking the blow of a Shardblade.[1][2]

The Vedens perfected them. Recently invented fabrials from Jah Keved, they represent an attempt to recreate the powers of Shardplate using fabrial science. However, they use a completely different design principle from regular Shardplate:[3] they can only take the shape of a shield and don't lend any of Shardplate's other enhancements.[1]

The Half-Shard shields have distinctive, diamond-like shapes. They are made of metal imbedded with a gemstone hidden at the back,[2] which can be infused with Stormlight, thereby enhancing its durability.
