1 is too long to answer, 2, price on articulated fingered gauntlets starts at around 175

These gauntlets are waaaay to cool. They look as good as some of the best modern steel German gothic pieces made these days, but the idea of copying feathers, and the way it was done is just phenomenal.

The only thing I've noticed on all of your gauntlets is that you don't use knuckleridders. Is that because leather is too thick to make it possible or is there another reason for it?

Thanks, but what are knuckleriders? Google didn't show me anything. Do you mean something like this?

It is a movable plate riveted to the far end of the metacarpal plate on those gauntlets with larger metacarpals. Fingers are usually attached to that plate, which in turn increases mobility and prevents gaps between finger plates and metacarpal.

To save some words check this topic on the ArmourArchive, and search for knucklerider as well. [link]

Again a very good work from you. you used "paper-gold" to colour them or just some kind of paint.. there look really like made from massive gold not like leather.

Pray tell, good sir, how in hades do you get that level of metallic look? Is it just garden-variety gold acrylic paint from the craft store?

Wow! Those are fantastic! I really love the gold color and the feathers look great! I like also how you changed their direction depending on where they were and made some smaller and close together at the joints. How long did these take you to do? (just out of curiosity)

Those would be even more awesome in black and silver. (personal taste)

Still, very awesome. I almost forgot that you make LEATHER armor, not steel......^^;
