Bucklers

Bucklers are traditionally small shields used to deflect the blows of an opponents sword. These shields were typically round but sometimes existed in other shape, and they were used as companion pieces to arming swords, rapiers, and other one-handed weapons. We carry a variety of bucklers here for reenactment, light combat, costume use, or decoration. We offer traditional round steel bucklers and medieval soldier bucklers that can be used in battle as well as impressively decorated wooden buckler shields featuring dragons, lions, fleurs-de-lis, eagles, and more. Our buckler shields come in different sizes for different levels of defense and preference, so you are sure to find a buckler here that will suit your tastes and needs.
