Buckler

A Buckler is a small round shield that was usually held in left hand and used during fencing. The difference between buckler and other, regular shields is that bucklers had either one handle or two handles that were close together and they were held in one hand. Larger shields usually had two loops that were wide apart and through which an arm was passed. Bucklers were used between 13th and 17th century.
