The street is a hard place to conduct business, but it's a way of life you've become very good at keeping. Unfortunately, a poor ol' sap hasn't paid his dues. You're an understanding sort, but you can't risk looking soft. Not on the street.

So, you decide to give the ol' sap a visit. Adjusting your Leather Gauntlet and preparing your most intimidating look, you don't expect this meeting to last very long. You'll get your money today or the chap will be missing a few teeth. You'll let him decide.

DETAILS

This bestselling Epic Armoury Leather Gauntlet is a heavy-duty, vegetable-tanned full-grain leather gauntlet designed to protect the exposed hands from the fingers to the lower-arms. Made from two overlapping, oblong knuckle-shields and a thumb shield, the fingers are protected up to the first joint. These knuckle-shields are fitted onto a larger plate to protect the back of the hand, which sits over a large cuff covering the wrist and lower-arm. All elements are stitched around the edges to add structure and prevent deformation. In addition, the knuckle and thumb shields are convexly shaped to add extra stiffness to the leather.

Secure this gauntlet to your hand by sliding it through the leather straps attached to the knuckle and thumb shields. The cuff is decorated with flattened leather cords and is adjustable with a system of leather straps and brass knobs.

The gauntlet can be worn with a heavy Epic Armoury Glove or on its own. The style is timeless and moderate, and is fully compatible with other Epic Armoury leather and metal armours, giving you the freedom to customize your costume.

Please note that this gauntlet is designed for left-hand use.

Available in Medium/Large.

HISTORY

  • Hand protection is one of the oldest forms of armour, due to its importance in combat
  • This particular style might also be referred to as a "demi-gauntlet," due to its limited finger protection
