Your squire buckles the straps of your custom-fit Gauntlet, adjusting it to be comfortable and snug over your hand. You paid top coin for this armour, and you expect people will be impressed when they see how it shines on the battlefield.

Your blacksmith assured you that the Gauntlets’ design was the latest in technology, able to withstand and deflect attacks--even the worst of slashes to make it beyond your sword’s crossguard. You are a mighty warrior, indeed, to be the owner of such fine craftsmanship. A fitting symbol of your godly-given status.

DETAILS

These bestselling Epic Armoury Gauntlets are a set of early renaissance articulated steel gloves designed to provide maximal protection in combat without compromising manoeuvrability. From fingers to the forearm, you can expect these gauntlets to keep you safe. Each gauntlet protects the fingers, covering them to the tips with overlapping metal plates. The knuckles are protected by a rigid, sculpted knuckle plate. A short vambrace protects the wrist halfway up the forearm. The back of the hand and the thumb are protected with finely fitted overlapping steel plates decorated with shiny metal rivets.

The steel is fitted onto a flexible leather foundation and the gauntlet is worn via a leather glove underneath. The fingers of the glove are sewn onto the steel protection, with adjustable leather straps under the knuckles and at the wrist to secure the gauntlet onto the hand.

Made from polished mild steel with rolled edges, these gauntlets are impressive but neutral in appearance and fully interchangeable with other Epic Armoury armours.

Available in Size 10.

  • Maintenance

    Epic Armoury metal works products should be treated with a wax or quality acid-free vegetable oil and kept in dry storage. Metal armour containing leather parts would needs a separate maintenance for the leather. Please read the "Leather Straps and Fittings" section below for leather cleaning and maintenance using leather-care products.

    Degreasing and preparing your armour for use

    When you open your armour, you may be overwhelmed by the smell of grease and oil. The oil has been applied to protect your armour during storage and transport. Use a degreasing product or mineral spirits and a dry cloth or paper towels to remove all the oil from your plate armour parts. Chainmail is a bit harder to remove all the oil from the links, but it can be done in much the same way. Wipe off as much as you can with a dry cloth, and with the remaining oil, you can remove the grease from the chainmail with mineral spirits or another solvent by spraying it on the links. You can also choose to fully submerge your chainmail in a degreasing product and use your hands to agitate the metal in the solution, this will completely remove all oil and grease from your links. After removal of the oil, make sure to dry your armour thoroughly. Strong, warm sunlight is great for drying your armour, but you can also use a hairdryer or a heat gun to speed up the process. Be careful not to overheat any leather parts when using a heat gun.

    Cleaning

    Moisture is the enemy of armour and chainmail. If your armour does get wet, it is important that you dry it thoroughly as soon as possible. After handling, wearing, or after six months of storage or display, all metal should be wiped with a clean cloth. Lightly oil the clean surface with a quality acid-free vegetable oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of the exposed metal. Allow the wax to dry for a couple of hours and then buff it lightly with a soft cloth.

    Rust-Prevention and Removal

    Store your armour is a dry place and check it every couple of months for signs of rust. If any is found, remove it by gently rubbing the affected spot with a mildly abrasive pad dipped in wax or quality acid-free vegetable oil. Epic Dark products are specially treated to resist rust, but should still be treated with oil and kept in dry storage.

    Leather Straps and Fittings

    Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.

    You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
