RE: [Ayreton] A good set of gloves
- Personally, I go for motorcycle gauntlets. Specifically deer or elk hide when i can get it. Here is the place I ordered my last set from.
Fox Creek Leather
I do have a set of the Excalibur gloves for "show" but they wear out way to fast to be good practice gloves.
Just my thoughts,

Subject: [Ayreton] A good set of glovesHey guys, I have a question. What would be a decent set of swordsman's
gloves to order for rapier?

soaked with sweat. Where you get them depends on how handy you are. I
get elk work gloves from Cabelas and sew on the cuffs. Of course I have
been doing this for 30 years - nobody made gauntlets back in the day.
The cuffs don't have to match or even be made of leather. For my
practice gloves I use elkskin TIG welding gloves (do a google search).
The cuffs are suede cow, but who really cares for practice.
- I bought mine from here, I have been fantastically happy with them and often get positive comments from marshals who inspect them on the quality.
