“Dark Star” Blackened Finger Gauntlets
Spring Steel Hand Protection
She’s an adept duelist, revered strategist, and accompanied by nothing other than her strong will… is there anything about the Dark Star that isn’t enticing? Just be careful if you decide to fall into her orbit – people who are alone by choice often need no one and have nothing to lose by discarding you.
These gauntlets are a part of our new “Dark Star” range, a collection of armor made originally with the female figure in mind. It is constructed from an exciting new material for us: spring steel. This is an amazing material because it is stronger and less easy to dent than mild steel, so you can make items with thinner steel, which are therefore lighter. To avoid rust we have used a historical blackening technique, which gives it a truly beautiful finish that is both eye-catching and functional. Many different design iterations, experiments, and tests went into making this armor, so we hope that you appreciate what we have come up with.
These are constructed of 0.8mm spring steel, which makes them light and flexible. Consisting of many different lames, these are our most flexible gauntlets yet. You should be able to grip your sword, flex your hands, and fight without having your movement restrained too much, due to a series of sliding rivets in at the back and side of the palm. The gauntlet also extends a bit down your wrist to provide you with a little bit of forearm protection, opening with a hinge and doing up with a buckle.
ArmStreet have been designing amazing gauntlets for a number of years, and we have applied a lot of our learnings to this item to make the best pair of gauntlets possible. These gauntlets lean more on the historical side of dishing, with slightly flatter lames than a lot of our SCA optimized gauntlets. They still offer decent protection and have a solid thumb plate on a hinge.
We have used a number of nice touches on these gauntlets, such as contrasting solid brass rivest that really pop against the blackened finish. The gauntlets as a whole are beautifully shaped and almost sculptural and are finished with a border of quality leather and strong leather straps. A cast brass medieval buckle is used, as well. These gauntlets are strapped and ready to fight, and also include a sewn in padded glove.
Please, mind that no polishing option is available if you choose brassed spring steel!
