The street is a hard place to conduct business, but it’s a way of life you've become very good at keeping. Unfortunately, a poor ol' sap hasn't paid his dues. You're an understanding sort, but you can't risk looking soft. Not on the street.
So, you decide to give the ol' sap a visit. Adjusting your Leather Gauntlet and preparing your most intimidating look, you don't expect this meeting to last very long. You'll get your money today or the chap will be missing a few teeth. You'll let him decide.
Epic Armoury's Black 2nd Quality Leather Gauntlet is a heavy-duty, vegetable-tanned full-grain leather gauntlet with discolouration and an unfinished lining (see photos). This discolouration and lining does not affect the safety of this armour, and is not readily visible while worn. Instead of throwing these away and wasting material, we are offering them at a discounted price to fit your more rustic character's needs.
Made from two overlapping, oblong knuckle-shields and a thumb shield, the fingers are protected up to the first joint. These knuckle-shields are fitted onto a larger plate to protect the back of the hand, which sits over a large cuff covering the wrist and lower-arm. All elements are stitched around the edges to add structure and prevent deformation. In addition, the knuckle and thumb shields are convexly shaped to add extra stiffness to the leather.
Secure this gauntlet to your hand by sliding it through the leather straps attached to the knuckle and thumb shields. The cuff is decorated with flattened leather cords and is adjustable with a system of leather straps and brass knobs.
The gauntlet can be worn with Epic Armoury's Thief or Falcon Gloves, or on its own. The style is timeless and moderate, and is fully compatible with other Epic Armoury leather and metal armours, giving you the freedom to customize your costume.
Please note: each gauntlet is sold separately so you either buy a left hand gauntlet or a right hand gauntlet.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
