14 1/4" shield for defense.
Used from the 12th thru the 18th century, the buckler achieved a deserved reputation as both a defensive and offensive arm. Indispensable in both classical rapier play and I.33 sparring, it has become an essential part of the modern swordsman's equipment. Crafted in 14 gauge steel, all of our bucklers have rolled edges.This version features radial embossed flutes in a spiral pattern for rigidity.. The steel tube grip is securely riveted to the body of the buckler.
Due to popular demand we've increased the size of the dome on this buckler to fit even the largest of armored gloves comfortably. In addition these new bucklers have a more historical straight handle. This buckler features a unique spiral fluted design, not only adding interest but some structural integrity to the steel.
