A high quality steel buckler by Windlass Steelcrafts based on medieval shields. Bucklers are small shields used in Europe between the 12th and 17th century. The buckler was mainly used to parry attacks rather than to protect the body. The position of the sword hand could be hidden behind the buckler and one could also parry the weapon of the enemy. This made it difficult for the opponent to estimate what the next move would be. The buckler became more popular, especially after the Renaissance, because the development of firearms made sword fighting more popular as a sport. This buckler is made of 1.3 mm thick steel and has a wooden handle. The buckler is perfect for sword and shield combinations.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
