THIS LISTING IS FOR A PAIR OF CLAWED GAUNTLETS.
These claws move with you! Unlike the static leather claw gloves you can find these have articulated joints that allow you to move each finger and claw individually. The leather has all been molded to be firm and hold its shape. I use the same leather used for things like saddles and horse tack and with proper care these guys will last a lifetime. You can choose your colors in the options to the right.
The gauntlet is hand molded and dyed veg tan leather. It is high quality, durable and lightweight. Each piece of leather holds its shape on its own. This piece is not made from thin leather that has simply been folded over the claws and riveted in place, each piece is cut, molded and dyed individually.
For long periods of wear I recommend ordering one size up and wearing these over a pair of thin leather gloves.
The claw tips are made out of resin. We ship them dull but you can sharpen them if you like.
We do not currently carry metal claw tips and have no plans to do so in the future.
***NOTES ON WEAR AND SIZING***
When choosing your size please see the chart in the last photo. Please keep in mind that these are NOT gloves, they are armor. These are not great for dexterous work and the thumb does not have the full range of movement that your thumb does.
When your gloves arrive you may need to do a bit of modifying to get the perfect fit. If the rivets press against your knuckles this can be solved with some moleskin. The leather will also relax and loosen after some wear. If some of the fingers are not articulating properly this can usually be fixed by gluing a bit of foam to the underside of the leather (between the back of the finger and the underside of the leather)
Please note that the thumb and pinky are designed to open and close in a claw fashion. This means they do not have 180 degrees of motion like your fingers do.
In short, please observe the photos and video and make sure you understand what these items are really capable of before buying. If all you plan on doing in them is holding a sword, mug of ale or being in costume these will work just fine. If you need to play an instrument, type, pull things out of pockets, etc...then these may not be for you.
We no longer offer custom color options. The only color options I offer are the ones shown in the example photo.
