What a great item!Review by Sean Kavanagh

I just received my Talhofer Buckler today and all I can say is its great! Its sturdy, well made, heavy and really everything I hoped it would be. This is not your average buckler at all it’s like the ungodly hybrid of a shield/buckler/bats wing and really looks the part.

As to how it’s made for the price it’s excellent, sturdy and beautiful in a very odd and somewhat ugly way. The handle is solid and well balanced feeling good in the hand with either rapier or side sword. It is a slightly heavier buckler due to its size but the extra protection combine with the options the pointed edge provides make it worth the strain on the arm. I think this is a great item to spice up either side sword or rapier duels and I know it’s going to come in very handy in my HEMA classes were there are range of rapiers capable or both thrust and slash.

I can’t recommend this item enough!
