I got a pair of these for each of Sam and myself in Dijon, and I agree with Matt's review. Sam did his sword-and-buckler and longsword bouts in them, and was pleased with how they stood up.

Do they fit in a sabre hilt? How about wrist mobility - can you perform full range moulinets in all directions?

I also chime in on the gloves being good.
As of writing moment, the best gloves for Sabre all price ranges- that I know of.

The only grain of sand on the palate was a bit of durability issue for the back of the hand. There seems to be some wear on the back of the hand, from the hard plastic shell. DIY sollution? black gaffa tejp.

Dammage absorbation? If supercross is a 5 and sparring glove mitten is a 9?
around 7

I'm putting it straight in as recomended klubb glove.

But if you are intending it for longsword full intention, you would do well to add some extra protection finger saves, dutch knuckles, or what you have.- I would still considder using them for swordfish, due to the agility.

We sent them an inquiry concerning detailed dimensions of the glove. If we can squeeze them into the hilts of our Polish sabres, we'll be ordering a couple of pairs.

Hi! Im very keen to grab a pair of these, but the shipping cost to Australia is a heinous 40 pounds! 90 pounds is a bit excessive, is there any other shops that stock these gloves other than the knight/hema shop?

I am reliably informed by Red Dragon that Medieval Fightclub in Australia will be carrying these gloves in due course - wait a bit and they should show up at better prices than those quoted with shipping from the U.K.
