A very strong buckler with an antique look due to the patina finish. A buckler was a small shield that you could hold in your fist during close combat. It was a popular means of protection among medieval and renaissance infantrymen and could be carried in either hand. In terms of weight and size, it was lighter and more manoeuvrable than a shield, well suited to avert blows. This buckler has an antique patina layer, decorated with rivets and has a wooden handle at the back to hold it firmly in your hand. It is tempered to 50 HRC so very strong and suitable for battles and training.
The Battlecry line of historical swords, daggers and axes was designed in collaboration with John Clements. John has unsurpassed knowledge of historical fencing and medieval and Renaissance fighting methods. All items are hand-forged by the forgery of Windlass Steelcrafts of high quality 1065 tempered carbon steel and are strong and resilient. The swords have an extra wide full tang and all weapons are sharp and suitable for cutting tests.
Each model has been put through rigorous physical testing to exceed industry standards. These battle tested weapons have a patinated finish which makes them look even more authentic and historical. Each weapon is individually inspected at every step of the manufacturing process, and only after passing the inspection do they receive the blacksmith's mark on the blade. Each weapon is delivered including a certificate, signed by all craftsmen who have worked on the weapon. Also included is a matching scabbard and, if applicable, a swordfrog.
