We have been receiving a lot of questions about the Koning glove, so here are a few answers to the most frequent ones.
How much will they cost?
We don’t know exactly what the price will end up being, but it will be somewhere around €200.
What colours will they be available in?
We are looking at providing the Koning glove in several colours, but it is unlikely we will be able to do that from the start. A lot of people ask about black gloves specifically, and black is absolutely on the table.
When will they be ready?
We can’t give you an exact date, because it depends on our suppliers. As soon as we have an exact date we will let you know, but it will be this winter.
Will it come in different sizes?
Yes, we are looking to provide it in different sizes, but we can’t do that from the start. The first size will fit an average male hand, around size 9-11.
What about protection?
The Koning glove has been built for full contact sparring with steel swords. It is however good to remember that no glove can offer full protection against all hits and maintain mobility. The Koning glove offers good protection on all parts generally exposed to hits, including the side of the pinky and index fingers, as well as the fingertips. Still, the best way to not get injured is to not get hit.
Can I preorder?
We will open up for preorders when we have an exact date for production from our suppliers. Payment will not be go through until we have shipped your order.
Will there be more products to come?
Yes, we have a long list of products, some of which are almost ready for production. We will start production of them as soon as we have enough circulation of the gloves to fund it.
