The crafting Blacksmiths' first selection in the Shield Category is the Buckler. It requires a skill of 0 to create and consumes 10 ingots in the process. The Buckler may hold its maker's mark and retains the color of the material from which it is made. Crafted versions can have their durability increased, via Powder of Fortifying, to a maximum of 255 and dyed with Pigments of Tokuno.
- Bucklers and Battle Axes are redeemable for rewards from the Britain Library Collection, up to and including the Mace and Shield Reading Glasses.
