  • 12" Red Dragon Buckler - 14 gauge

    This buckler has been developed with some of the top HEMA schools in Europe with durability and price in mind. It is constructed from 14 gauge steel making it durable enough to take the abuse that everyday practice in the salle throws at it. It is ideal for both I.33 and Bolognese systems. The boss is well riveted to the face of the buckler and the grip/handle is raised at the back to allow for a padded glove, but not raised to the extent that it adversely affects manoeuvrability. A great buckler at a great price!

    Diameter: 31cm
    Circumference: 97cm
    Depth: 5cm
    Weight: 1640g
