If you wish to fight like a late medieval warrior, make sure to carry the proper gear. Wield the Talhoffer Buckler in battle. Made from 16-gauge steel, this medieval shield has a design that comes from the Talhoffers Fechtbuch illustrations, a 15th century publication. It features a shape that looks like a holly leaf and a conical central boss. A grooved cross adorns the boss. There are ridges that radiate out from the central boss to the edges. Between the ridges, there are spikes. On the back, there is a steel handle. It has a twisted shape. This buckler is great for historical reenactments and medieval fighting.

    Little disappointed, to tell you the truth. Should be 2 1/2 stars.
    The online picture shows a shield with a squared off tip at the bottom. However, mine comes to a very sharp point at the bottom, which poses a danger in stage combat. I’ll need to blunt it.
    Also, while front on the shield looks smooth enough, the back shows a bunch of crude welds.
    Finally, there’s the deeply grooved handle. Since I will be wearing a glove, that should reduce any hot spots.
