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 14th Century Armor Gauntlets are a unique yet effective defender that adds nimble yet high strength protection to your hands. The Churberg Hourglass 14th Century Armor Gauntlets 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 have been made so that you can hold a medieval weapon in your hands if need be.
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.
