- I agree. "Round shields" and "bucklers" are two distinct, though certainly related, weapons. They should feature in their own articles. In the very least, the title of the page should be changed to "Round Shield" and the article should identify the buckler as a subset of that group. Gregorius the Brown (talk)
I've removed the reference to "transportation terminal manager Mark 'the buckler'" as this seems to have no relevance whatsoever. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:02, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
"Blinder: The light blades used in conjunction with the buckler depended on rapid movements, which meant that a single second was an important advantage. The wielder of the buckler could use the buckler to shield his sword-hand's position from view, keeping his opponent from guessing his next strike."
If the opponent is guessing ("prediction without sufficient information or knowledge") then there's nothing which can stop them randomly guessing correctly nor stop guessing. Is it not more appropriate to say "keeping his opponent guessing his next strike"? --22.214.171.124 (talk) 09:08, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
Held versus strapped
I have seen cases in casual fan culture of small shields strapped to the forearms (rather than being held in the hand) being called bucklers. Is there a better term for this? Ranze (talk) 19:31, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
