Finger Gauntlets “The Kingmaker”
15th century style articulated gauntlets
Kingmaker Finger Gauntlets
15th century style gauntlets with amazing articulation and protection.
We’re excited to present our best gauntlets yet as a part of our Kingmaker collection! While they sure are something to look at, we promise that they’re more than just attractive. We’ve taken everything people loved about our other models of finger gauntlets and have improved upon them to produce – in our opinion – the ultimate hand defence. They offer both an astounding level of flexibility and protection, a perfect balance that we’ve achieved through clever articulation between the wrist and the cuffs. The robust thumb plate is articulated with leather for ease of movement, and an enclose wrist is achieved through a sturdy hinge and an adjustable leather strap. Extra segments cover the knuckles and the bottom of the fingers to protect your digits, as well as a suede glove sewn in for extra comfort in the heat of battle. With these gauntlets, your finger protection will feel less like a piece of bulky padding and more like an extension of your own hand.
Made from 1.5mm stainless steel and solid brass rivets, these finger gauntlets are built to take a beating. An ornate band of roping lines the wrist of the gauntlets, as well as Kingmaker’s signature brass trim for unbeatable style. Complete with period appropriate cast brass buckles, there’s nothing about these gauntlets that isn’t magnificent. The Kingmaker Finger Gauntlets will instantly upgrade your kit from footman to knight, fitting well into any suit of armour looking to replicate the style from The War of the Roses.

Hello, When customizing these gauntlets to include a brown suede glove rather than a black one, do you also change the colour of the leather on the gauntlet to which the glove is sewn onto or does the leather still remain black with a brown glove?
Hello Alejandro, which leather on top do you mean, please? If you mean the leather straps then yes, we can make them black or brown per your request.
Is it possible to get this gauntlet without the brass accents?
Dear Jon, we can make them without brass accents on the cuffs. If it works for you, please simply leave this request in the comment to your order.
How flexible is the thumb? Can you lay it against the flat of the blade and have good form?
Dear Rich, the thumb on the gauntlets is pretty flexible so it should be comfortable to lay it against the flat of the blade.
Is the included glove the padded one that comes with other gauntlets?
Hi Tyler! Yes, these are the seude gloves used with other gauntlets.
Are payment plans available for larger purchases?
Hi Ryan, yes of course, please contact our support team for assistance.
