Used from the 12th thru the 18th century, the buckler or small shield 6 to 18 inches in diameter 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 GDFB bucklers have rolled edges and come in three sizes to meet individual needs. This leather-covered version combines functionality and aesthetics. The steel tube grip and 14 gauge scalloped boss are both securely riveted to the body of the buckler. We also offer a wide selection of helmets and other protective clothing for the re-enactor
