This fist shield is handcrafted from robust, 2 mm thick mild steel and comes with a metal holder that is reinforced with a wooden handle. It is a fully functional shield that can be used for historical re-enactments and as decoration.

  • Diameter 40.5cm
  • The handle is approx. 15cm long
  • Steel sheet thickness 2mm
  • Thickness of the edge fold (flange) 3.72mm
  • Weight about 2890 g

While other shields are used in combination with many weapons such as swords, axes, maces, or spears, puncher are generally only used with one-handed swords. Later, during the Renaissance, the buckler was often used as an accessory in combat with a rapier or sword.

Another key difference to the sign is its mounting. In contrast to the shield attached to the arm, the wrinkle is only held in the hand, which gives it greater mobility. This allows it to rotate to protect the hand of the sword from either side and to turn it off to face the blow or blow itself.
