The mail on our black leather gauntlets protects the hands and so does the slightly cupped steel lames all around the cuff. These amazing-looking gauntlets offer good protection to the hand, wrist and lower arm from a sword slash or draw cut.
There's a pair much like these at the Art Institute of Chicago that are much flashier; we have left ours simple to keep the price down and to enable them to be historically correct from the Early Middle Ages well into the Renaissance. These are a must for any enthusiast.
