Question

Cut Resistant gloves?


Anyone use this type of glove? I'm looking for gloves that can provide protection from sheet metal, glass handling, razor slashing, puncture resistant, etc. I recently had a small accident when cutting drywall with a razor...my index finger was slightly off the drywall square and sliced the side of my finger. I'm sure any of the gloves below would of either prevented the injury or lessen it.

I have found many gloves....just threading on your personal experience with these type of gloves, brand, model, etc. Some I have been looking at that seem to be very flexible and not "clumsy":

I even came across gloves at Harbor Freight, but don't know if they are any good....good enough to trust if every in a possible cutting incident:

Cut Resistant gloves?


The glass companies use basic jersey "roper" type gloves that have the palms and fingers dipped in a rubbery plastic. Not as fancy or expensive as what you pictured above, but very functional.

Cut Resistant gloves?


After viewing some documentation and watching a video I decided to buy a pair of Hexarmor gloves:

The video link demostrating the armor material:

Cost was $32 for a pair at Palmflex.com

I'll try to remember to reply post later once I have the gloves and work with them on.

Cut Resistant gloves?


I received the gloves and they work as advertised. Just to make sure before using them, I took a pin to the palm and it did not go thru and no sharpness is felt. The large fit a little tighter than I wanted but figure with use it will loosen slightly for the desired fit. I give them ....I feel safer and more confident when cutting drywall, working with sheet metal and cutting/installing corner beads.

Note: There are other models with less and more protection zones, so you need to be aware of where the protection is on the glove.
