Save Your Fingers With Kevlar Gloves

Save Your Fingers With Kevlar Gloves

By Luke Anderson

I can’t recall doing many activities lately that involve the use of very sharp knives. Sure, I’ll use a steak knife with my food sometimes, but you won’t find me cleaning fish or performing any task that requires something sharp in my hand for extended periods. However, if you’re doing something that makes you worry about the safety of your digits, you might want to invest in a pair of these gloves.

These gloves are made from a lightweight 7-gauge Kevlar, which will save you from small scrapes and deep cuts. After all, if it’s good enough for bulletproof vests, I think it can stop a few slices on your hand. You can pick up a pair for just $20.

  • I like how the knife, sort of inexplicably, is an illegal in most states punch dagger. I guess it gives the image that much more tactical oomph!

  • if they come in black they would make a great addition to my batsuit

    I don’t get it. Is this a new type of weaving for Kevlar? Yes, it’s always been “good” for bulletproofing – Kevlar’s strength is in absorbing high velocity impacts. Kevlar’s weakness is that knives & swords cut through fairly easily – bullet proof vests sometimes have a metal layer sewn in to protect from knife blades. Most “cut-proof” gloves I’ve seen contain a stainless steel mesh which is sometimes wrapped in kevlar, but this product doesn’t make sense with conventional knowledge of how Kevlar works.

    Chrysophylax beat me to it. I always thought the inherent strength of kevlar was it’s ability to withstand impacts. A slowly drawn knife would just cut the weave surely?

    Afaik kevlar would stop the initial impact of a stab from a knife but you can then push the knife straight through.

    Kevlar gloves have been around about as long as bullet proof vests have. They use them for glass handling, some people have pointed out that they wouldn't be effective. While, yes, they may be punctured easily, they're very resistent to slashing. (I know people who work in glass factories.)
