Whenever I hear the words “safety” and “gloves” together, I either flash back to high school PSA’s, or I feel a distinct urge to dig out my old Men Without Hats album. These safety gloves aren’t Thriller-style or anything as sexy as all that — they will help you to not remove pieces of your fingers with a whittling knife, though.
Made from a combination of Kevlar, Spectra, and stainless steel, they provide cut-resistance without making you feel like you’re about to joust somebody. If you hand-carve, these might save you some pain — and if you’ve already managed to slice up digits, you know these gloves are a really good idea.
Pricing starts around $14.
