Description

Stylish Medieval gauntlet, featuring fully articulated fingers and wrists. Embellished with elegant ridge embossment and cut out heard detailing. Crafted from leather and riveted steel. These are fully wearable.

Historical Period

Historically, gauntlets were used by soldiers and knights. It was considered an important piece of armour, since the hands and arms were particularly vulnerable in hand-to-hand combat. With the rise of easily reloadable and effective firearms, hand-to-hand combat fell into decline along with personal armour, including gauntlets
