Pair of Gloves - Dagger

Aug 2022 - New version now in stock!

We developed these gloves for specific use in dagger work. Some protection on the back of the hand and around the wrist. But still leaving good articulation. Extended protection on the forearms protect againt harder hits during longer training sessions and more agreessive sparring sessions. They can be used for some rapier or singlestick work, as long as there is a safer bell guard or hilt that will protect against stronger blows.

See Sizing tab for more information.
  • Kevlar knuckles and padded fingers offer extra protection.
  • Significantly less bulky than other padded gloves, with light padding on the wrist and fingers.
  • Better for using in a hilt.
  • A longer cuff protects the forearm.
  • Quality material at an affordable price.

Customer Review
"In addition these are the best gloves we have used for both our Shinkage heiho and Owari Kan Ryu sojutsu, and for our “weapons workouts.” I have been trying out different gloves for the past 30 some odd years, and yours are the best I’ve used in that time. They provide the best back of the fist and knuckle protection, and the length of the cuff is ideal for the Shinkage training."

4 of 5 almost perfect August 7, 2022
Reviewer: Paul from Bates  
These gloves were recommended to me by my coach and i have found them to be excellent for not only small weapon work but also Rapier and Sabre . the only issue i have is the cuff is very tight on my officers jacket and one some jackets doesnt really fit. if these gloves had an adjustable cuff they would be just about perfect

3 of 5 Good improvement January 6, 2022
Reviewer: Dude  
excellent finger, top of hand, wrist, and forearm protection. Absolutely useless thumb protection. I used shoe goo to attach additional padding to the top thumb knuckle, but without that modification these gloves are not safe for sparring with any knife trainer larger than a cold steel ka-bar trainer. That being said; the mobility,  hand size, and protection from the plated areas are excellent, even for large bowie training.

5 of 5 Excellent dagger gloves June 23, 2021
Reviewer: Patrick McCaffrey from L'Arte NYC  
These gloves are great for both practicing dagger and full speed drilling and sparring. The forearm protection helps prevent bruising during extended practices and blocks and the wrist and back of hand protection are great for the locks and holds without sacrificing the ability to perform dagger plays yourself.
