Whether you’re reenacting a scene from your favorite medieval knight movie or transforming into an Avengers superhero, these gauntlets will be your go-to accessory. Made of hardened metal, this gauntlet will protect your hand, wrist and forearms during heavy combat.

It is said that a brave knight never went anywhere without his gauntlets. They were always ready to fight for their kings and queens, no matter what the situation. Even when they were not on the battlefield, they were always prepared; therefore, they never went out without wearing the steel armor. The gauntlet also has a historical significance in declaring war. In the past, knights threw the gauntlet in front of their enemies as a signal to declare war. Nowadays, the phrase “throwing down the gauntlet” is used as a metaphor for declaring any battle.


Gauntlets used for armor

In the 11th century, soldiers used chainmail, which had wide, long arms that covered the hands. Around the 12th century, the style changed to narrower arms and long sleeves, but soldiers also began to wear gloves made of the same material. These were usually mittens with the thumb separated from the rest of the fingers. This served the purpose of protecting the hands from cuts, but it did not protect against heavy blows.

In the 14th century, when the invention of plate armor appeared, all types of armor were improved. The metal plates protected from heavy blows and the gauntlets were invented. There were two types of gauntlets: one without fingers to allow limited movement, and one with fingers attached, which offered no movement at all. Soldiers preferred the fingerless gauntlets because they could warm their hands in the winter. The finger cuffs proved too uncomfortable in winter, but protected all parts of the hands and wrists.

Modern use for cuffs

This protective armor is still worn today, but instead of protecting against cuts and blows, the gloves are used to protect against heat. They are used by metal workers and welders, as they work with high temperatures. The protective gloves prevent sparks and burns on workers’ hands. Gauntlets are also worn by workers in the automotive industry to protect their hands while handling or cleaning car parts. Butchers wear gauntlets made of chainmail when cutting meat to also protect their hands from cuts by sharp knives.

Other gauntlet users are motorcyclists who wear gauntlets made of leather to prevent their hands from being damaged in the event of an accident. Gauntlets made of nylon are worn in snow sports to have a better grip on snow vehicles and to provide protection from the harsh weather. They act as a barrier against cold burns and frostbite. Gauntlets are often worn by bird handlers, especially falconers, to prevent the bird’s sharp claws from piercing their skin. In fencing, they are worn to protect the fencer from being injured by his opponent.

A gauntlet can also refer to an extended cuff without fingers that is attached to a sleeve. This is more of a fashion statement and is often incorporated into wedding gown designs. They do not serve as a protective measure in any way.

In the Roman Catholic Church, a gauntlet was worn by the pope or bishops. These were gloves that covered the hands of the saintly figures, but they have not been made as a mandatory uniform since Paul VI.
