Steel Gauntlets

For total hand protection, you need a pair of steel gauntlets from Medieval Armour. With these metal mitts, your hands will be almost impervious...and yet, because many of our medieval gauntlets are articulated, you'll also retain most (if not all) of your dexterity, allowing you to continue wielding your weapon with all the skill of a trained fighter. A good pair of steel gauntlets will take you far, while providing a classic touch of medieval armour that belongs on any medieval warrior or knight. Here, you'll find several sets of knight's gauntlets, some in gleaming steel, others embossed for detail, and others still blackened for intimidating effect. All of metal mitts featured here are articulated gauntlets, which ensure that whether they're actual mitten-style hands or fingered, you'll retain the use of your hand when you wear them. Each set is fully functional and makes for great SCA gauntlets, providing more than adequate hand protection when worn that's capable of turning away glancing blows with ease. For that reason, these pieces of medieval armour are also as effective as LARP armour as they are as reenactment armour. At Medieval Armour, you can find just the steel gauntlets that you need, whether you're looking for Italian Milanese gauntlets, classic knight's gauntlets, or even German gothic gauntlets.
