This buckler is directly inspired by the famous I.33 manuscript.
Light and handy, it offers an excellent compromise for sword and buckler fighting
The "umbo" steel is securely riveted to a plate of 5 layers plywood
The handle is made of 30 mm ash, the best wood for shield handles but also spear- and axe-shafts
The edge of the shield is protected by a strip of leather that prevents the wood to be damaged by the sword.
The edge of the shield is made of rawhide leather (untanned skin)
- Leather is nailed (standard model)
- Leather is sewed for 10€ extra
Can I paint the shield ?
Yes, it is possible to paint the shield but you should first protect at least the rawhide-edges with a 50/50 mix of linseed-oil and Terpentine.
Rawhide is hydrophop, which means that it gets soft when it becomes moist/wet - the linseed-oil/terpentine cover gives protection from moisture.
