Making Gauntlets

Finger gauntlets have an almost mesmerizing quality to the first time wearer. To consciously animate this articulated collection of tiny steel plates is a compelling experience. Compound this with the fact that you yourself built these gauntlets and you have something magical. Ok, all romantic pondering aside, it is still undeniably cool to make.

This course covers the cutting out, shaping polishing and assembly of a pair of 15th-century finger gauntlets.

The helmet course is a prerequisite for this course.
