This shield is designed specifically to be used and made from 1065 high carbon steel with a darkened, battle-hardened finish and tempering to a low 50s RC. Includes custom packaging and certificate of authenticity.
This Soldier’s Buckler is from Windlass Steelcrafts Battlecry collection. This small shield was useful in hand-to-hand combat during the Medieval and Renaissance periods. Its size made it poor protection against missile weapons like arrows and spears but useful in deflecting the blow of an opponent”s weapons, binding his arms or hindering his movements.
This fist shield has gone through rigorous testing. The hands-on nature of the manufacturing by master smiths makes this line unique.
Includes custom packaging and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your shield through every step of the forging process.

Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®
The Battlecry line has been designed in conjunction with John Clements, whose knowledge of historical fencing and Medieval and Renaissance fighting methods is unsurpassed. Hand forged by Windlass Steelcrafts, the 1065 high carbon steel is tempered in computer controlled ovens to an RC in the low 50’s. This ensures strength and resiliency.
Each model has been put through rigorous physical testing to exceed industry standards. These battle tested weapons have a stone washed, blackened finish. Each is individually inspected at every step of the manufacturing process, and only after passing inspection they receive the armorers stamp on the blade. A certificate is included with each, signed by the craftsman that worked on this buckler.
