And I thought it was just a friendly tournament next weekend... Now I realise we're being used as guinea pigs. Excellent!
See you at the weekend

They do indeed

How is that dealt with in this case?
Dangermouse wrote:Thing I don't get is that these guys were doing this for real. Full intent, sharp weapons, epic scale and yet they did not seem to adapt the tips of the fingers etc. Technology was there to do so. Question is "why did they not feel it was warranted?"

KeithFarrell wrote:A few questions:
1) you say they will be fastened with buckles. Are you meaning buckles like those commonly found on leather belts, or the snap-buckle type found on things like rucksacks?
KeithFarrell wrote:2) how much protection do the gauntlets give against a heavy direct hit from a steel sword? You say the impact can be felt, but HOW uncomfortable is this? I'm particularly interested in the ability to protect against a direct hit to the wrist, to the back of hand and across the fingers.

KeithFarrell wrote:4) I will bite: how do the gloves protect against strikes to the tips and sides of fingers?
