Description

Steel shield buckler is a type of additional medieval defense. Buckler was known from the VIII century in Byzantine Empire and became very popular among medieval European warrior in XII-XVI centuries.

Diameter of this small shield varied from 20 to 40 cm. Our model has diameter 30 cm (12 inches), however we may change it by your wish.

Bucklers were usually made of steel but there were wooden or combined (wood and metal, wood and leather) models, too. This medieval shield of round shape was most popular, though shield of other shapes can be seen on bas-reliefs and miniatures.
