This thick hand of metal covers the forearm and part of the hand. Like gauntlets that come with armor, battle gauntlets allow the wearer to make unarmed strikes as if he were armed. They can be fitted with spikes or blades (making them function as spiked gauntlets or claw bracers). Because battle gauntlet covers the hand and the entire forearm, the wearer cannot wear any other magical gauntlet or bracer on that arm (or items that use those spaces on the body) while wearing battle gauntlets. The price and weight on the Weapons table is for a single battle gauntlet.
