The Condottiere glove is the perfect padded glove for drilling with the longsword or full-on sparring with lighter weapons. It has a comfortable, nimble fit and flexible gel padding.
At this point I’ve tried almost all of the light gloves on the market for over a decade. And these are by far the best I’ve used. Exceptional protection and great too when using two fingers over the guard.
The Condottiere has a classical look, embodying the arts we are reviving. It is made with the utmost care to detail by quality craftsmen. It is made for rapier and similar weapons, but also for controlled drilling with for example a longsword, where you need protection from light hits or scrapes from a jagged edge on the sword.
The Condottieri were Italian Captains of mercenary guards during the Middle Ages.
