Kevlar Gloves

OH MY GOSH, MAN, DON’T CUT YOUR WRISTS! LOOK, IT’S NOT WORTH IT! JUST PUT THE KNIFE DOWN, AND WE’LL TALK, OKAY? WE’LL TALK. PLEASE?

Seriously, this article has nothing to do with cutting yourself, but it is about preventing yourself from being cut. Yes, this article is all about the gloves. Kevlar gloves, to be exact.

These particular Kevlar gloves are made from lightweight 7-gauge Kevlar, which is just good enough to shield the hands from scrapes and cuts. Considering that Kevlar is good enough to stop bullets, your hand should be safe from any sharp edges.

These gloves can be “worn by themselves or as liners”. I don’t really have a lifestyle that would be in need of Kevlar gloves, but if I were say, a knifethrower, Kevlar gloves would be completely practical.

If you ask me, I believe these Kevlar gloves should be mandatory for all teachers of Shop class. I mean, those stories about their missing fingers are legendary. Maybe they should make these Kevlar gloves in Juvenile sizes and make all the students wear them.

Perhaps you’re in a similar profession that should require Kevlar gloves, like being a butcher, for example. If so, feel free to go to the SkyMall site and put down $19.98.

im pretty sure kevlar is just a fabric so if you cut it directly and with enough force, you could go right thrue it

Yes kevlar only stops the initial impact of a knife as it would a bullet but if you keep pushing on the knife it will go straight through a kevlar vest. Thats why some cops wear kevlar vests as well as knife stab vests. Kevlar won’t stop cuts, scratches or stabs but will fend off knife throwers =P

Please don’t encourage the use of gloves around power tools (like those you’d find in shop classes for instance). Especially not gloves made from a tear/abrasion resistant fiber like Kevlar. Yes, the glove may prevent the occasional minor cut or scrape, but more often than not the glove will be pulled into the tool causing substantially more damage to the fingers its “protecting”.
