In a medieval bout, your hands are essential to survival, and people will be looking at them a lot, especially since you will possibly be holding your medieval weapon. These Churberg Hourglass Armor Gauntlets Brass Plated are an ornate yet effective defender that adds an impressive look to your hands, keeping them both good looking and impenetrable. The Churberg Hourglass Armor Gauntlets Brass Plated are named loosely due to the shape or look of the wrist area, but provide essential protection and full mobility in a battle. They are crafted entirely from 18 gauge carbon steel, which is heavy enough to provide protection, as well as light enough to be comfortably worn as costume pieces and LARPing armor. The gauntlets possess a flared cuff and articulated fingers, and are heavily accented with touches of brass metal plating, giving them a two-toned coloration and a rich level of detailing that makes them look worthy of the highest orders of nobility.
The interior of the gauntlets are occupied by thick, supple gloves made of sheep skin and wool, which makes them even more appealing. When worn, they are surprisingly mobile and dexterous, which ensures that you do not lose dexterity and range of movement, either. Each finger plate also has a padded backing to help absorb impact. If you are fighting, then you can bet that at least one person - your opponent - is watching your hands. And when you wear these Churberg Hourglass Armor Gauntlets Brass Plated, more will do the same, especially once they realize the fine accoutrement that you have protecting your fingers from harm.
