Witchking gauntlet

The peoples of the world should feel free to join hands in harmony, sing a song of joy and peace then pass the hat to buy me this example of gentleman's haberdashery. But wait, there's more!

These replica Nazgul/Ringwraith/Blackrider gauntlets from 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy are expertly hand forged from 16-20 ga. mild steel. The gothic styled beauty of these gauntlets starts at the fingers, each lame is hand cut and rolled for strength, then riveted to heavy leather strapping. The intimidating knuckle plate is hand forged from 16 ga. steel and attached to five articulated metacarpal plates on the back of the hand. The vambrace or forearm plate features a rolled edge and carries the same design as the proceeding plates, rivets also accent this plate. All of the riveting is done by hand using steel roundhead rivets. The steel is blackened and slightly distressed giving the gauntlets a decaying evil look.

It is all beautiful work. Perhaps I will indulge in a full suit of Witchking armor if I ever manage to get a tenured job.
