Gauntlets are armor worn on any body part that can grasp, which for dwarves are the hands. They are similar to mittens and gloves, but act as an armor layer and provide much more protection. Like other armor, gauntlets can be made of metal, shell, or bone. Elves sometimes bring wooden gauntlets in their caravans.

Each crafting job takes one bar, and produces a pair of gauntlets -- one right-handed and one left-handed. The items from a single job may have different quality levels. A strange mood will only produce one half of a pair of gauntlets.
