  • 12" Leather Buckler

    The buckler is a defensive weapon used since the 12th century and it was in use until the 18th century. It is well known that a light and resistant buckler was sought in the civilian environments, able to withstand the attack of the weapons, lighter than those used in war. The boiled leather buckler appears in many written references that talk about the piece itself (Cuir bouilli). This piece has proven to be a perfect balance between protection and lightness. 

    This mode has in its centre a shield boss of steel which has 2 mm of thickness rimmed by a piece of hardened leather of 9 mm and fixed by 4 rivets; thus achieving a sturdy and extraordinary piece for both defence and attack.

    The piece comes with a steel grip and is topped with rosewood with brass rivets. We can find this kind of decoration in similar pieces of that time like knives because it was a typical style among weapons of this type.  

    Material: Steel, leather and wood.
    Diameter: 33 cm
    Shield boss diameter: 13 cm
    Shield boss thickness: 0.2 cm
    Grip width: 11 cm.
    Weight: 1.35 kg

    All sizes are approximate and vary from piece to piece. Leather is a natural product therefore there could be some variants in colour.
