Forget about size: Epic Armoury’s Fencing Buckler is light and maneuverable in hand-to-hand combat, and combined with a sword or rapier it is a simple yet effective weapon, if used with the right techniques. The buckler has many uses; ‘blind-out’ the position of your sword hand, and make it difficult for your opponent to guess, what your next move is; or ‘bind’ your opponent’s sword hand against their body. Use this hard EVA foam and latex shield left- or right-handed with the split-leather wrapped punch grip hidden behind the shield boss, and feel confident that it will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular maintenance.
The buckler goes well with Epic Armoury’s Sovereign range of products, for instance the Squire Sword or the Rapier and can be used by a wide range of characters such as dashing knights, valiant soldiers or fancy Renaissance fencing-duellers. With its utilitarian design, you can make this Fencing Buckler a trust-worthy central piece when crafting your character’s kit.
Available in colours Metal, Dark Metal and Gold
- The buckler was first and foremost a military tool used in war by both soldiers and knights
