Buckler is a Small Shield in Demon's Souls. Small Shields usually weighs very little and has the least form of protection from attacks. They are often used by players who prefer Parrying rather than Blocking. Its lighter weight also makes it ideal for quick, agile characters with low equipment weight capacity.

 

A small shield that is especially effective at parrying. Its use requires a fair amount of skill. In general, lightly equipped soldiers pair this with a rapier.

      Thought for a second that the Buckler didn't have any additional parry frames, i was wrong. Apparently Demon's Souls parrying actually takes skill because you have to parry literally the moment the attack hits you with a parrying dagger.
