Cut Resistant Kevlar Gloves

Kevlar gloves are constructed from Kevlar fiber- an incredibly dynamic material. It is a rugged & lightweight fiber that is flame, heat and cut resistant.

Gloves constructed from Kevlar are suitable for a range of demanding, high-performance professional activities, from police & tactical work, to recreational activities like motorcycle riding or oyster shucking.

These cut resistant gloves help to protect against finger & hand and injuries while on the job.

If you are looking for a rugged, tactical Kevlar glove, we recommend the Custom Leathercraft Extreme glove (currently out of stock), but if you are looking for a cheaper option more suitable to kitchen work, we would recommend the WISLIFE Kevlar Glove.

Some customer feedback: 

  • One buyer said that they were a great buy for an elderly person with diabetes. Because diabetics are at risk for slow healing of cuts with the potential of long term neuropathy effects after healing, so these were great to protect when prepping vegetables, meats, fruits in the kitchen with a very sharp knife.
  • However, one downside a reviewer mentioned is that the gloves are apparently only kevlar on the bottom side. So this reviewer says that the top cuts through like its cotton. 
  • Another buyer said that he works in a warehouse and that the glove provided both grip and protection, but kind of wore out after several hours of work.
