THE MEDIEVAL KNIGHT AND HIS ARMOUR Gauntlet is a name for several different styles of glove, particularly those with an extended cuff covering part of the forearm. Gauntlets exist in many forms, ranging from flexible fabric and leather gloves, to mail and fully articulated plate armour. Historically, gauntlets were used by soldiers and knights. It was considered an important piece of armour, since the fingers, hands and arms were particularly vulnerable in hand-to-hand combat. Some medieval gauntlets had a built-in knuckle duster. When the hand was bunched into a fist the backhand protection becomes pronounced from the fist just above the knuckles, this allowed the user to utilize the gauntlet as a melee weapon while still protecting the hand from damage when punching.
