SCA fighting leather-covered gauntlets
Demi-gauntlets are one of the oldest armor hand protections appeared in the Medieval Europe in late XIII − early XIV century and have been used since then in combination with chain mail or leather gloves. Even in XVI-XVII century with the rise of the popularity of the basket-hilts for the swords, we can observe demi-gauntlet resurgent.
The popularity of demi-gauntlets lays in the fact that they are providing great protection for the fist with the minimal sacrifice in the fingers dexterity. And with the little effort (as we did) they would provide a great appearance.
The basic material for these demi-gauntlets is 1.5 mm cold-forged stainless steel (16 ga).
Gauntlets are decorated with beautiful brass trimming and covered with split leather. These demi-gauntlets also have a wide belt on the palm side for the good flexibility.
- Made of 16 ga (1.5 mm) stainless steel;
