SCA Lamellar Gauntlets

Slavic style etched armor mittens

Simple and beautiful armor piece. Elegant and functional design. The highest level of protection. These, seemingly incompatible, characteristics are simple description of our mitten-style steel gauntlets of the segmented sub-type.

Good for virtually anything – from SCA cut-and-trust and SCA heavy weapon to HEMA/WMA practice or rebated steel combat.

While the design of these metal gauntlets originates from early Slavic and Norman examples, due to its high protection and functionality similar construction was still in use even in XV and XVI centuries. The segmented design even had its' own name “crayfish tail”. Mittens are usually associated with the lesser level of the arm dexterity then finger gauntlets but the protection they are providing is simply unparalleled – when the fist is closed gauntlet's segmented plates are forming solid shell around the fist – and until the segments locked on the hilt or shaft aren't completely collapsed (and this is VERY hard to do) your hand is perfectly protected!

Gauntlets normally come in stainless steel, but available in mild (cold-rolled) upon request for reenactment maniacs (though stainless is recommended, as etched mild steel maintenance isn't an easy thing).

Regular thickness is 18 ga (1.0 mm). Heavier 16 ga (1.5 mm) is available for $90 extra upon request.

This design is tested and proven in many Eastern European rebated steel melees, so these steel gauntlets are the great choice for both training and battles.

Important note about measurements: please take into account that we need your measurements in padding gloves or other under-armour gear you are planning to use with these gauntlets. The only exception is when you are ordering gauntlets with inner gloves from our company — in this case you can provide your bare hand measurements.

    can these be done without the engraving?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi James! Yes, please simply leave this comment to your order.

    My order arrived today. ahead of schedule, even more than was anticipated. the product looks beautiful and is very comfortable to wear. as light as my old hardened leather pair. Immediately took them out to the pell with a few swords and a spear. They feel fantastic to weld a weapon in hand. my one and only concern is maybe the width on the palm straps. feels like it's pushing the sword out of my hand. simple fix with a little scalloping the edge. won't know until i actually fight in them however just thought i should say something. all in all I love the product! Thank You so Kindly, Quillant Telachevic

Also, do these function well for spear fighting in sca as i have used hockeys for awhile and dont want to lose much grip/feel of the weapon.thx for your time, i just received a pair of your etched elbow cops & wanted to say they look great. thx

    ArmStreet team:
