Early in Peter Jackson’s first Lord of the Rings film, The Fellowship of the Ring, there is a scene where the four Hobbits – Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Meriadoc Brandybuck, and Peregrin Took – are hiding from one of the Nazgul. The four halflings crawl into a hollow under the roots of a great oak tree while the Nazgul searches for them – coming very close indeed. So close, in fact, that at one point it hovers over them, filling the Hobbits with overwhelming fear. The Nazgul remains shrouded in its black cloak, the only part visible is the iron gauntlet that it grips the twisted oak roots with – and even the slight glimpse of that gauntlet is enough to instill a deep sense of dread.
Inspired from the Nazgul medieval armor gauntlets in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, we have created one of the most complex and detailed gauntlets on the market today. Each gauntlet has 158 rivets with 58 moveable parts, permitting exceptional articulation and range of motion. The gauntlets are made of 16 g steel (Leather gloves are included), making them suitable for reenactment, cosplay, or the Renn faire. The adjustable leather straps allow a perfect fit, letting you terrorize diminutive heroes in relative comfort.
