Mitten Gauntlets “Hound of War”
Combat mittens with hinged thumb
Rigid construction of the mitten gauntlets has always been preferable for those armed with polearms. Creating a solid shell around the fist when it's closed, they provide a high level of protection that is difficult to beat with separate fingers of the hourglasses. A plethora of survived mitten-style gauntlets belongs to the 15-16 centuries.
Features four articulated plates - per one at the cuff, at metacarpals, at knuckles, and at fingers. Extended cuff covers the wrist and a part of the forearm. The outermost plate is especially deep for even better protection of the fingers, which was crucial for halberdiers and pikemen. Technically challenging hinged thumb-piece assembly of four plates. It allows free and secure gripping of the hilt while offering enough dexterity.
For superb durability the mittens are handcrafted from 1.5 mm stainless steel. The whole point of this style is extra strength through overlapping plates, highly polished stainless steel construction is significantly tough. Includes an integral split leather glove, that ensures it is comfortable to wear. The gloves are strapped in and riveted to the steel gauntlets.
Thumbs up if you're looking for sturdy gauntlets, that will keep your hands safe and sound! Stainless mittens are great if you need to shift the grip in various ways, without restricting your movements, as well as the best option for the buhurts where more power often come into play.
