Your squire slips the custom-fit Hourglass Gauntlet over your hand, adjusting it to be comfortable and snug. You paid top coin for this armour, and you expect people will be impressed when they see how it shines on the battlefield.

Your blacksmith assured you that the Hourglass Gauntlets' design was the latest in technology, able to withstand and deflect attacks--even the worst of slashes to make it beyond your sword's crossguard. You are a mighty warrior, indeed, to be the owner of such fine craftsmanship. A fitting symbol of your godly-given status.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's new Black Hourglass Gauntlets are a set of mild steel gloves designed to protect the wrist, back of the hand and knuckles in combat without compromising manoeuvrability. From fingers to the wrist, you can expect these gauntlets to keep you safe. Each gauntlet protects the fingers, covering them with thick leather, knuckle plates and shiny brass rivets. The back of the hand is protected by a rigid, sculpted plate. A short vambrace protects the wrist.

The steel is decorated with black coloured split-leather and the gauntlet is worn via a leather glove underneath. The finger protection of the glove is sewn onto the leather glove, with a leather strap around the palm to secure the gauntlet onto the hand. Made from polished mild steel with rolled edges, these gauntlets are impressive in appearance and easily paired with other Epic Armoury armours.

Available in Red, Green, or Black.
