Dwarven Gauntlets are a piece of heavy armor and part of the Dwarven Armor set found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Dwarven Gauntlets seem to be of composite construction, with the same minute scale-type backing seen on other pieces of the armor set. The gloves are surmounted with individual straight pieces appearing to be blades or stabilizers, each of which face out from the wearer's center. The fingers on each gauntlet are protected with individual metal pieces that flex at the wearer's joints.
