Re: Got a Real World Weapons or Armour Question? Mk XI
There was a lot of different gauntlet designs, so it's really hard to tell.
Still, inside of the hand wasn't usually even covered with mail, so there was still a lot of dexterity.
Attempting some really precise stuff is hard enough even in woolen glove, so it's obviously out of question, but combat with armor and stuff isn't really about sleight of hand.
