Made up of six planks of wood bound with light
brown leather on the outside, this round buckler also has a strip of
metal around the edges, held by eight rivets. A large metal boss is in
the center, with a darker brown design surrounding it, the same as the
design just inside the metal edge. The back has two leather holds
riveted down, for the arm to slip through then grasp the handhold.
The dwarf sword is short and straight. The blade is a curved leaf-like shape, somewhat like Frodo's sword "Sting" in The Lord of the Rings. A deep fuller runs down the middle of the blade. The hilt
is red with a gold engraved guard and pommel, and the
gold guard slants back toward the hand from the handgrip.
The sheath is medium brown leather wrapped with bands of dark
leather and has a gold locket (mouth) and chape (tip).
The axe is almost exactly like a black dwarf's in
shape. The grip is light wood, some bound with reddish-brown leather, and the blade
has a gold celtic-style inlay.
Bow and Quiver
The red dwarf bows are sharply recurved. From their
shape and thickness, they are meant primarily for long-range shooting.
The bows are short with thick limbs and red grips.
The arrows are medium-varnished wood bound with black.
The fletches (feathers) are red or very dark brown and differ in
shape; some are very large, called "flu-flus" (believe it or not) meant
for bird shooting, and others are a simple shield shape. The nocks are silver and the points are steel broadheads, hollow in the middle.
The quiver is stiff and rectangular-shaped, covered with dark brown leather and edged with silver.
