These half gauntlets are based on an early 15th century original. The original is nowadays part of the collection of the National Museum in Neurenberg. Half gauntlets like these were used all over Europe. They were relatively cheap and provided an excellent protection to the most vulnerable parts of the body.
These half gauntlets are made with a steel thickness of 1,6 mm. They are delivered without leather gloves. You can order them separately in several sizes and thicknesses. These gauntlets are suitable for re-enactment.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
