A beautifully made buckler, perfect for I.33 fencing and other means of medieval combat under Liechtenauer and Fiore. This the stuff of legends. An old tale would go that 800 years ago in Germany, the cruel King Conrad had invaded a city and split the men in one side and the women on the other. To the men he says, "Today you are going to die", he turns to the women and says,"You may take anything you want from the city without harm coming to you". So when he goes to rest inside his tent, the women begin picking up all of their men in the city and leaving immediately. When Conrad came out and saw this, he was aghast. The women were carrying all of the men out and he could do nothing. Since it was his oath. It's possible that some men were carried by shields, perhaps a tad bigger than this buckler, by these women. Thus the ladies kept their loved ones, the men didn't die and Conrad had nobody to kill.
