The monstrous undead with a hammer the size of your head has you in his sights, and you've found yourself standing without an ally. Your usual tactic involves skirting around the battle, picking your fights strategically. Now there is no time.

You duck beneath the first blow, keeping your RFB Buckler between the hammer and your soft body. You're faster than the rotting monstrosity, but in your desperation you trip and roll. Again the hammer falls, and you raise up your RFB Buckler to catch the force. Your small shield holds, buying time while your friends finally come to your aid.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's RFB Buckler is a small, versatile latex shield inspired by skilled swordsmen through history. This 36 cm round buckler has a neutral design befitting many character types, sculpted and painted to look like iron rimmed with brilliant, shiny brass.

Wear this RFB Buckler left-handed with the use of two canvas arm straps on the back, secured through hard EVA foam for a reliable and solid grip made to last. Feel confident that this latex shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance.
