These hand crafted 16g mild steel clamshell gaunltets feature finely tuned & articulated 5
lame full finger protection, a floating thumb plate, metacarpal plate, and ridged cuff plate w/ leather articulation. As opposed
to dishing, each pair of gauntlets are hand raised on a ball stake to create the shape of each plate. In this
manner the steel of each plate is work hardened making for a stronger plate which will hold its shape longer. This technique
also leaves the exterior surface with a nice hand hammered look/feel which is very attractive and period. The finger
lames and thumb plates are articulated using 5/32" steel rivets while the cuff is connected to the metacarpal plate using
a 9oz leather and 8d "arming rivets". The gauntlets come unstrapped so that the buyer may custom fit them
to their liking. These clamshell gauntlets very maneuverable, competitive hand protection and are perfectly suited for
SCA Heavy Combat.
