Safety Gloves Thumb and Finger
Your carving knife will most likely be the sharpest knife you ever own. Consequently, even when using caution, you can seriously hurt yourself. Such injuries may also have an negative effect on your confidence and love for the hobby. Therefore, when you purchase your first woodcarving or whittling knife BUY A CARVING GLOVE and a Thumb Guard is a good idea too!
Sell both Kevlar and Steel Mesh carving gloves. Neither are puncture proof and jabbing the tip of the knife into your hand will cause damage! However, both are cut resistant when drawing the knife blade across their surface. Both are good – the Steel Mesh is better.
Thumb & Finger Guards
We also carry leather Thumb and Finer Guards. These are inexpensive and provide excellent protection.

Woodcarvers Leather Thumb Finger GuardsSafety Gloves Thumb and FingerA must-have for all wood carvers. Our genuine leather guards are sewn with an elasticized insert to ensure they stay put!. We use a 'wrap-around' style on both the sides and ends for extra protection. The thumb guard gives protection when using a 'pushing' stroke on your knife as well as when 'pulling' the knife toward your thumb. You really should not carve without either the finger or thumb guard. Prevents you from adding 'color' to your work (yes, that red color).CA $2.56
