This Soldier’s Buckler is from Windlass Steelcrafts Battlecry collection. This small shield was useful in hand-to-hand combat during the Medieval and Renaissance periods. Its size made it poor protection against missile weapons like arrows and spears but useful in deflecting the blow of an opponent''s weapons, binding his arms or hindering his movements.
Designed specifically to be used and made from 1065 high carbon steel with a darkened, battle-hardened finish and tempering to a low 50s RC. This fist shield has gone through rigorous testing. The hands-on nature of the manufacturing by master smiths makes this line unique.
Includes custom packaging and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your shield through every step of the forging process.
