The use of a small buckler or targe was a very popular form of defense. An English chronicler commenting on defense prior to the use of single rapier said "euery Seruing-man, from the base to the best, carried a Buckler at his back which hung by the hilt or pomell of his Sword—which hung before him." Our targe is 11" diameter, 16 gauge steel, and has a hard handle. It is also our most popular stage combat item.
