16th-17th century cuirassier Gauntlets
The battle is about to start. Your squadron is called to the front, and as you calmly take your place in the first line, you know while clutching your deadly blade that your good old gauntlets won’t let any impact reach your hands. These gauntlets have been among our most popular pieces of medieval armour for years and have been appreciated widely in LARP and reenactment for their elegant look and mobility.
There is little surprise in this as they were based directly on the original 16th-17th cuirassier’s gauntlets known for the freedom of movement that the wearer experienced on the battlefield! This pair of gauntlets is meticulously HANDCRAFTED from sturdy 16-gauge MILD STEEL plates carefully riveted together to offer proper articulation and minimize any movement restriction. Each finger is made of several tiny finger lames painstakingly riveted to a high-quality leather strip. Additional sturdy leather straps across the palm and wrist help secure the gauntlet in place during all your battle. It comes in one size that fits most.
