Your elven ears hear the rustle of footsteps behind you. A smile crosses your delicate lips as you realize a stranger is attempting to sneak up on someone as lithe and alert as you. You are the kindred of the immortals, having honed your skills for hundreds of years. No normal mortal being can surprise you.

"Come out of hiding," you call over your shoulder. "I know you are there."

As you hear the 'thwap!' of an archer's bow, you spin and catch the incoming arrow with your Elven Buckler in one fluid motion. The fight has begun.

DETAILS

This bestselling Epic Armoury Elven Buckler is a small leather covered shield worn around the wearer's arm, inspired by a naturalistic elven society. The buckler is elongated with rounded corners, covered with overlapping vegetable-tanned leather. Featuring a sturdy leather brace to strap your arm securely against the underside, feel confident that this hard EVA foam and leather shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular leather maintenance.

The buckler goes well with Epic Armoury's Elven range of products, especially the Elven Blade - 110 cm. However, its naturalistic design can be used by a wide range of characters. With its unique detailing and natural look, make this Elven Buckler a central piece when crafting your character's kit.
