Hard leather buckler

The buckler is a defensive weapon used since the 12th century until the 18th century. It is well known that a light and resistant buckler was sought in the civilian environments, able to parry attacks of weapons of all kinds, lighter than those used in war. The boiled leather buckler appears in many written references that talk about the piece itself (Cuir bouilli = boiled leather). This proven buckler represents a balance between protection and lightness. More information...

The Hard leather buckler is made out of genuine cow leather. For production are chosen materials that are not completely homogenous, small marks on the vamp may appear and the shoes get so an authentic look. The texture and exact colour-tone may vary from exemplar to exemplar because of the use of natural materials and traditional techniques of dying.
