I've been searching through the forum and have found a few threads relating to sparring gloves, but I haven't been able to find much info regarding the type of gloves most people wear during cutting sessions. Before I make any purchases, I would appreciate any input from more experienced forum members.

Thanks,

David

My gauntlets have Revival's Swordsman's gloves sewn into them. They're quite comfortable. But, when I normally do backyard cutting, I wear simple leather workgloves from the local hardware store. They're comfy, durable, and easily replaced. The pair I've been using have a reinforced palm.

I could buy several pairs of those cheap gloves for the price of 1 pair of Revival's gloves. Of course, hardware store gloves aren't historically accurate for the period, but neither are my 21st century clothes, sneakers, pool noodle, etc. Happy

For me any glove actually decreases control and feel (gauntlets are especially bad...) so I prefer not to wear them.

Except for sparring of course. Happy

I got some goatskin workgloves at the hardware store that I really like.

Thanks guys. I wasn't sure if it would be worth the money to spring for the "swordsman's gloves" offered at Revival Clothing or not. Looks like I may be better off running down to Lowes instead. Cool

Thanks again,

David
