Functional Steel Gauntlets

Every warrior knows how important their arms are, but keeping your hands safe is another matter entirely. Dark Knight Armoury carries a wide selection of functional steel gauntlets. This ensures that when you need it, you know where you can find a good selection of steel-plated gloves that will keep your hands quite safe and secure. As the name of the category suggests, our gauntlets are all made from steel and provide more than adequate protection for your hands. They come in a variety of styles, ranging from shined metal that gleams like a knight under the sun, to blackened steel that fits the darkest of warriors. Gauntlets themselves also come in two distinct types. One is a mitten-style gauntlet that has a shell-like design that protects the fingers, while the other features separated fingers that allow your hand a wider degree of movement. Gauntlets pair up quite nicely with other suits of armor, both in terms of look and protection. Of course, as protective as they are, you do not have to wear them as armor, but rather, you can enjoy them for the look they provide, as steel gauntlets do tend to look rather awesome, especially when they are paired with existing pieces of armor and traditional medieval looks. If you just like the look of the functional steel gauntlets here at Dark Knight Armoury, then you are not alone, so pick up a pair before they are all gone, to ensure that you always look your best and that you are always fully armored when you head into battle.
