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.
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.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
