Ars Gladii – School of Chivalric Martial Arts: new forum reply to Sword and Buckler Class, session II

New reply from Pigeon

<p>I'll be unable to get a Buckler this week due to budget stuff, but hopefully soon! I do plan on being there.<br /><br />Is there a chance we can work on a couple of the drills (winning the bind and some of the thrusting ones, like his thrusting from Fifth Ward)?<br /><br /></p>

Sword and Buckler Class, session II

<p>As long as the weather cooperates, it looks like I have availability for more sword and buckler work this week Thursday. If you don't have your own equipment, there is a very limited amount of stuff from the school's armory available. We more than likely have more single-handed swords than bucklers right now. If you have Amazon Prime and feel like getting your own buckler, they have two that are inexpensive that will fit the bill, if at least temporarily:</p>
<p>Cold Steel Buckler ($21.59) – https://www.amazon.com/2009948-Cold-Steel-Medieval-Buckler/dp/B006YBXYYS/ref=sr_1_1?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1498580321&sr=8-1&keywords=buckler&refinements=p_85%3A2470955011</p>
<p>GDFB Plain Steel Buckler, 9" ($32.20) – https://www.amazon.com/GDFB-AB0116-Plain-Steel-Buckler/dp/B00461DRYK/ref=sr_1_4?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1498580321&sr=8-4&keywords=buckler&refinements=p_85%3A2470955011</p>
<p>The CS Buckler is ABS plastic, so it can get chewed up during use. The GDFB is heavy but a tank – this is the same one that Dave is using currently. There are other options if you're not looking to get one for this Thursday or don't have Amazon Prime. These are just the ones that I see that can get here by Thursday evening. </p>
<p>Assuming that there isn't a bunch of rain on Thursday, we'll start at 6:30pm.</p>
