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."

5 of 5 Saber fighting! January 17, 2023
Reviewer: Breonna Nicholas from vancouver, WA United States  
Like others, I looked into these gloves because I wanted something that offered protection and dexterity while sparring with sabers. I’ve taken a few good smacks on the knuckles and the forearm no problem. The finger tips on the other hand need caps on them. I misjudged a high hanger and got hit on the top of my thumb and busted my nail. Regardless, couldn’t be happier with my purchase. especially at the price.

4 of 5 New Dagger Gloves December 19, 2022
Reviewer: Andris Vezis from Marblemount, WA United States  
For years I’ve been using the Cold Steel knife gloves combined with forearm protectors with extra rubber padding sown on them.  These Dagger gloves are the best I have come across for saber fencing.  I have been using them for two months now with a full basket hilt and haven’t had any injuries on the hand, yet.  Normally at least once a year, I get a hit across my thumb. But so far so good. I may need to eventually add a little piece of padded rubber there, but haven’t had the need yet.
I did need to shovel some snow with these gloves to loosen and soften the leather on and around the palm area.  I do recommend saber fencers to try these gloves out.

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
