Hourglass Gauntlets of the middle XIV. century tended to have short cuffs and no joints to allow a free movement of the wrist of a hourglass shape, as in the case of this model.
A weapon master of the fifteenth century said that the hands are capable of an elusive way of defense. Yuu can defend yourself in a duel but in the turmoil on the battle field where blows can come from any direction, your hands could be wounded badly. That is why the Hourglass Gauntlets are considered for a indispensable outfit both recreational fencing and public battles.
The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
