Description of the
This project creates a set of wearable medieval plate mail gauntlets.
The techniques used to create these gauntlets are mostly traditional
(methods they would have used in medieval times); however, more
modern processes are occasionally used to speed up some manufacturing.
All manufacturing skills involved in making this project are very
transferable to modern day skills in metal working trades. These
gauntlets are designed for display or costume use; however, with
some modifications for SCA rule, they could be used for SCA fighting.
These medieval plate mail gauntlets are fully articulating and have
a great range of movement.
