Cuff Armor Prototype


I found a intractable for fingerless gloves the other day. I really like fingerless gloves, I have pare of light leather ones I fight with all the time and love, they offer some protection against burns, still allow good grip and are stylish. But I would like to have bit more coverage and maybe some thicker protection on top. So I am thinking of using parts of this pattern to make a armored glove (Nija Brig stile). This is my first prototype, I like the feel and look of it so far.

I will probably have 3 or 4 leather plates sewn in to pockets, I might think about some thumb protection, and might add a velcro (or some other kind) fastener at the wrist.
