Medieval steel gauntlets: Rule your life with an iron fist

Hand made for your knightly hands. The gauntlets, or Enforcers of Awesomeness as I'll call mine, are handmade and feature real riveting.

I cannot come up with a practical reason why I'd need these reproduction medieval gauntlets. I just want them. Think of all the people I could be! These are the last pieces I need to complete the following outfits: Destro, Sir Galahad, Drs. Klaw and Doom, and Optimus Prime (after a paint job).

I think, though, that I'd just keep them in my bag at all times. I imagine that next time I get into an argument with a drunk dude-bro at a bar I can get him to back down without violence simply by putting them on. They're made out of steel, for crying out loud. They also have leather finger loops that do something, though I'm not sure what.

The gauntlets, or Enforcers of Awesomeness as I'll call mine, are handmade and feature real riveting. If anyone out there is feeling generous, e-mail me and I'll send you my mailing address. They're only $59.99 from Think Geek. I need them for the +2 bonus they'll give me to my Charisma when I'm wearing them.
