Medieval Clamshell Armor Gauntlets
Updated lamellar gauntlets, Slavic style
Reenactment Armor Gauntlets
Lamellar armor gauntlets of Slavic design
Great choice for training and medieval fighting. This pretty simple design is typical for early middle ages – Norman or Slavic style. This model features advanced thumb shape: just a slightly deeper dishing of this version's fingertips results in a more closed shape that helps to protect your thumb from a frontal hit. If you need reliable tournament or training gauntlets this pair is a perfect choice. One of the best-sellers in this category, the number of lamellar gauntlets sold by ArmStreet delivered lots of highly valuable feedbacks by fighters from all over the worlds equal to years of user experience. Which in turn contributes to constant improvements of both functionality and ergonomy.
We've updated this popular model and now you can adjust the leather strap across the palm for a snugger fit. The extra of the strap is directed sidewards and do not interfere with the proper grip you definitely opt for when it comes to holding your weapon. And another tiny but very important upgrade is small leather loops at the inner part of the wrist. Now you can put on both of your gauntlets in a handy and timesaving manner without any external assistance.
Inner leather mittens are included and riveted above the fingers and a thumb to the metal gauntlet thus your fingers have no chance to leak outside the edge of the lamellar gauntlet. This type of junction also prevents leather inner mittens from riding up and twisting during intense practice or in the heat of the fight. The length of the inner mitten is adjusted to match the clamshells length – no more clumsy overlapping with your arms harness.
Now these combat gauntlets come in 17 ga (1.2 mm) spring steel. Mild steel and stainless steel options are available here.

These fit perfectly and look beautiful and exceeded all of my expectations! Even the bag they come with is beautiful and well made. You are doing amazing work and your customer service has been excellent. I have no critique other than to keep doing what your doing because the quality and value is amazing!
These are excellent hand protection and allow a nice, strong grip on the sword. Beware cleaning - mud that gets on the gloves or behind the gloves and on the inside ranges from frustrating to impossible to clean off. That being said, if it's a choice between broken fingers and dirty gloves, go with dirty gloves! Also, be mindful of the tip of the thumb. The steel rolls over it a little, but the edges and inside can be a little exposed. The Armstreet team were kind enough to tailor these to not only fit my abnormally tiny Hobbit hands, but also to blacken them to match the armour set. They are just plain helpful, friendly and skilled and I'm amazed at their work ethic, especially given the current circumstances.
These are awesome gauntlets for HEMA longsword sparring. I tried them out within a week of receiving them and they function beautifully. Much nicer than the SPES heavies, although a little heavier (easy enough to get used to, just expect to be slower then normal at first). I took some good hand hits and the worst that happened is the finish got slightly scratched. These have excellent mobility and articulation as well. I'd recommend a plastic fingertip protector on your thumb in the gauntlet, just in case, but these are pretty great.
