Neyman THOKK Gloves

Price: $199.00


Description Sizing
Free index finger gloves designed in collaboration with Dario "THOKK" Magnani from Societa dei Vai. THOKK model was primarily designed for use with one handed weapons like: rapiers, sideswords, messers and sabres. However, many competitors and HEMA practitioners use them for longsword, appreciating comfort of free movement of index finger.
What distinguishes our gloves is an excellent finger protection and phalanges on each side - even in case of hits "from the front".

Foam is black with Black Straps and red stitching.
--> Made of hot-formed styrogum, covered with durable cowhide
--> Offer excellent protection for all fingers, thumb included
--> Separate index finger allows comfortable hilt grip
--> Hourglass-shaped cuff attached with a strap of folded, pierce resistant fabric (800N)
allowing articulation and keeping wrists safe
--> Additional padding option included in every pair

5 of 5 Protective enough for longsword May 2, 2019
Reviewer: Giles from Illinois  
I custom ordered my pair directly from Neyman when they had a sale. I've had them for ~2 months and have taken them to one competition. While the free index finger is meant to allow one to use a finger ring on a side sword you may find these gloves are too big. That being said, the Thokks are sufficiently protective for longsword and I don't feel that they impede manual dexterity more than any other commonly found mitten/ semi-mitten glove. Overall I am satisfied with my Thokks.

4 of 5 Neyman thokks February 21, 2019
Reviewer: JSmith from Oregon  
Overall a good pair of gloves. I have had them for 2 months. I use them primarily for arming sword sparring/I.33. Upon initial unwrapping, the gloves are extremely stiff. After breaking them in they fit comfortably. However, they are quite large. For measurements I met the large portion of the gloves thus bought them large. Retrospectively, if I bought them again I would get a Medium Pair. This is coming from a person who wears large SPES Heavies.

4 of 5 Solid good protection February 5, 2019
Reviewer: Andrew Dorman from Fayetteville, AR United States  
They are very solid, take hits very well, and the thumbs are surprisingly comfortable. They are uncomfortably tight around my fingers. Break-in helps with this a little but only a little since the foam padding will break in some but the nylon pockets for your fingers don't give at all. This is very rigid material with no give. I've opted to cutout some of this nylon (just leaving pieces for fingertips) and sew in elastic straps. Elastic is much more comfortable while still still secure. I may end up replacing all the nylon with elastic. Also, I added foam in strategic points where my knuckles push again the hard foam while bending. Overall, these are the best heavy gloves I've tried so far, having tried SPES heavies, Koning, Sparring Gloves previously.
