I mean if he 100% does not want to change the habit you can also get him those cut resistant gloves - $8

u/Amynthis · 29 pointsr/GifRecipes

I've got gloves like these, I use them pretty much any time I have to cut something now. I loved it when using a grater for cheese the other night, and again for cleaning said grater. It's nice not to have to worry about your fingers.

Here's the same type

Conductive thread is a dollar a yard on amazon.

u/SystemFolder · 20 pointsr/ThriftStoreHauls

Cut resistant gloves, like these.

u/HeloRising · 19 pointsr/AskMen

Steel toes are a pain but I wouldn't put my feet in anything else when there's a drop danger. They've saved my feet numerous times. You can buy steel and aluminum guards that fit over your current shoes but I wouldn't trust them as much as I do a steel toed boot.

Any boot you get is going to be uncomfortable as fuck for the first few weeks. If you get a new pair, wear them around on weekends and going out. It'll toughen your feet faster so you aren't hobbled on the job as much.

What you might be able to do is keep a pair of sandals or slip-ons with you so when you go home at night you can take the boots off and leave them off.

I would highly suggest getting some Dr Scholls Gel Inserts. They're fucking incredible. Change them out about every four to six months and you'll get a lot more out of your boots. I guarantee you will notice the difference and it will be glorious.

When you can, get a second pair and third pair of boots and rotate them every day. If you don't they're going to get fucking rank very quickly and they'll break down faster.

On a side note: if you don't have them already, get some good work gloves. They are worth their weight in gold for this kind of work and will dramatically extend how much you can lift and for how long.

Source: I've done this kind of work for years now.

u/merreborn · 14 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I've worked in the amazon affiliate business for a decade now, and I don't see an affiliate code in there (ref=sr_1_1 is not an affiliate/referral code. It's just internal amazon click tracking garbage [as are most of the other arguments] -- I believe in this case it indicates OP clicked on a internal amazon search result)

But just in case,

Problem solved.

u/DrunkBeavis · 14 pointsr/Construction

If you can't wear fingerless gloves, the next best thing are something like these. Light and breathable and not bulky so you have some dexterity.

I've never found a pair of glasses that won't fog up eventually, so just get some anti-fog wipes or some Cat Crap.

Mechanix Gloves for anyone needing to workout outside in the winter

u/skittles_rainbows · 11 pointsr/specialed

Ok. Did some reading.

I'm not going to sugar coat this because well, I don't believe in that.

Welcome to the dark side. We have goldfish crackers. (BTW my roommate was an aide for 20 years and said that they are convenient because if they are attacking you, you can throw them at them and it will distract them for a while.) Invest in goldfish crackers and fruit loops. They make good rewards.

Buy this book. I really wish someone had recommended me that book before I stepped into an autism classroom. I reread it now every once in a while and still learn new things.

Start here. Go through the rest of her blog. Subscribe to it. She runs an excellent easy to understand blog.

Visuals are insanely important. Subscribe to LessonPix. Your school may have Board Maker, but I find it very difficult to use. Plus, LessonPix is online based so you can create something at home and then access it at school or vice versa. It is like $36 a year, which is insanely cheap. For my visuals, I usually put a picture with the word on the bottom.

You will need velcro. Do not buy it from a store. This is a wholesale place online. They have the cheapest velcro out there. I buy coins so I don't have to cut it, it makes it a lot easier. If you are going to cut velcro, get titanium scissors. They will not gum up when cutting velcro. Have a system with your velcro so you don't have random patterns of velcro. I usually do soft on a surface and rough on anything that travels.

You are going to need a personal laminator. My binding has the cheapest 5 mil laminating sheets out there. Use 5 mil for anything that travels and if its going to stay on a wall, use 3 mil. 3 mil or 1 mil (what the school laminating machine uses) tears easily and doesn't last. Once you create something, you don't want to lose it. Most any laminator will do. I like the Fellowes brand. This is a very good one. That my binding website has some awesome deals on laminators. Whatever you get, just make sure it doesn't need a carrier sleeve to laminate because those are annoying. Just make sure that if you from 5 mil to 3 mil you switch the laminator over to 3 mil and let it cool or there will be a burning smell. To save time I bought one of these. Just makes cutting faster.

Don't overspend on stuff for the classroom. Look at oriental trading post. You can find a lot of stuff there. Sign up for the newsletter and wait from a free shipping coupon, don't pay for shipping.

Get yourself a couple pairs of these. I like the 18 inch ones. Make sure your tetnus shot is up to date.

You probably need to brush up on your evidence based practices for autism too.

I know this is a lot of information. But these are all things I wish people would have told me before I started teaching this level of autism kiddos. I went into it blind. I've had to put all this together through reading, training, and observation. Its easier just to be front loaded with the information.

My first year teaching, I was put in a K-1 mod/severe autism class (your setting 3). It was the first autism specific class at the school. Nobody gave me any support. I had no idea what I was doing. I had very little formal training on autism specific teaching. It was like being sucked into a vortex in deep water with nobody around to help me. I didn't even know where to go for information. That's why I try to help people and be completely honest. I'm not trying to overwhelm you.

If you need help and support, let me know. My MA.Ed is in Special Ed with a specialty in Autism Spectrum Disorder. I am teaching a class similar to yours at an elementary school level next year. I'm really good at dealing with behaviors and data too.

u/chuck_stat · 11 pointsr/skiing

Getcha pair o kincos , slather some sno-seal on em, and yer dun. Ur welcome.

u/quinncuatro · 10 pointsr/Goruck

The move seems to be Mechanix gloves.

I've been using these to great success.

u/spockish · 10 pointsr/GifRecipes

So whenever I use a mandoline or spiralizer, I wear food grade kevlar gloves. They are pretty inexpensive (~$10), and if you get a pair that fits you well, you will save yourself a whole lot of blood sacrifice and trips to Urgent Care for stitches.

u/shamarctic · 7 pointsr/Wrangler

OK dont worry you guys. I've got this. First things first, you're going to need to open up a credit card with a high limit. $30k should do to start.

  • Rubber Floor Mats. I got the Mopar ones. I might suggest Weathertech instead. If you have the unlimited, you can get mats for the back was well. I cannot find any mats for the back of my two door :(
  • Have a dog? Plan on running with the roof off? Want to prevent them from falling out? Safari Straps have your back.
  • Off Roading? I suggest some tire deflators to air down conveniently, and a portable air compressor to air back up.
  • Grab Handles are great. Here's one example, but I recommend shopping around. Theres a lot of different styles, find what you like.
  • Hi Lift Jack & Base. You'll quickly find off road that the stock jack will not get you out of a lot of situations. The base is helpful on soft surfaces (wet dirt, sand, etc).
  • Change your own damn oil! It's easy. No jack required just shimmy under there. Make sure to get an oil catcher big enough for your motor. 6-8 QTS if I recall correctly.
  • Buy a shovel. Invaluable off road
  • Recovery Strap & learn how to use it properly.
  • Mechanics Gloves. Again very helpful around the jeep.

    That should get you off to a good start. Eventually you might think about replacing the bumpers, adding a tire carrier, lifting the jeep, getting bigger wheels, adding a winch, adding a roof rack.
u/Vaher · 7 pointsr/hockey

I like to keep these handy for when I'm dealing with edge lords. Safety first!

u/freewaytrees · 7 pointsr/Aquariums

Gloves here

Mostly shramps and some neons

u/Gorkymalorki · 7 pointsr/Cooking

Acquired a pair of these when I worked at a BBQ restaurant. Still use them when I get the mandolin out. I have gotten quite attached to my fingertips over the years and plan to keep it that way.

u/aaronwhite1786 · 7 pointsr/hockey

Besides keeping your knives sharp in the kitchen (dull knives cause more injuries than sharp ones!) everyone should have at least one cut resistant glove in their kitchen for when you're doing stuff like a lot of chopping/cutting or especially when you're using the great finger-tip eating Mandolin.

Cheaper than least in the US. I'm sure you Canadian and European fans are just slicing your hands up all over the place knowing your healthcare is better and cheaper. May as well get your money's worth!

u/Kensik · 7 pointsr/3Dprinting

One thing if you use this get a pair of cut resistant gloves with a blade like this you will cut to the bone if you slip.

u/_macon · 7 pointsr/skiing

Get some insulated leather gloves/mitts and coat them with SnoSeal.

Kinco makes good ones that are really cheap. Flylow makes a similar style that comes pre-coated. I have a pair of BlackDiamond spark gloves I got on sale.

Just know that whatever brand you get you'll eventually have to reseal them with SnoSeal cause it doesn't last forever.

EDIT: Here are some links:

Mechanix FastFit Gloves. The velcro wrist strap on the regular Mechanix just gets clogged with mud/grass too easily.

u/TemplarReflex777 · 6 pointsr/securityguards

I still do bar/nightclub work, I usually wear a pair of leather sap gloves or a pair of the soft knuckle gloves from Line Of Fire. I also have used Hatch brand gloves with hard knuckles, but every pair of hatch gloves I have owned has not stood up to more than a couple months of constant use. I highly recommend Line Of Fire, I know the Sentry and Operator series are a little more pricey, but they do have some more affordable options that have a pretty high level of cut protection. Mechanix makes a pair of covert tactical gloves that are becoming more and more popular. These Mechanix gloves have become popular due to their affordability, and the "normal" look they have to them, no shaped knuckles or anything that could contribute to the "intimidating" glove style some companies don't allow.

u/needsmoredragons · 6 pointsr/policeuk

Mechanix gloves, they are proper decent.

These are quality gloves which are great for police work. They provide a good amount of protection, the palms are made out of a tough synthetic leather material, this will protect your hands from getting cut up from any debris or assorted detritus you may encounter during your duties. The other benefit of this material is you can use a touch screen with it. It is also quite water resistant, unlike woolly gloves. The back of the hand is made out of a fabric material, which is very breathable in summer. On some models there is a velcro strap for them, on others there is just some elastic (personally I have the elastic ones as they are easier to get on and off). There is also a Velcro loop to help you get them on and off. They are very dexitile and easy to manipulate, unlike leather gloves. Meaning you can get your kit out easier, work zips and even do a quick initial search. They also pack away quite easily, unlike bulky leather gloves, meaning you can keep them in your tacvest or a pocket. They are quite warm in winter, but if your hands get cold just slip on a merino wool liner underneath and it will keep you warm. They do a range of models, all of which are good and fairly cheap.

Mechanix Fast Fit gloves - I like these ones. Very cheap at £13. They are the ones you can slip on and off. These are the ones I use for work.

Mechanix Original - Same as the fastfit ones, but with velcro and more expensive. The velcro can be a failure point though.

Mechaniz M-PACT - More expensive, but has extra knuckle and finger guards. Also more tacticool if that's your thing.

Sealkskinz - These are very warm glove liners. Merino wool is a lovely material, which is soft and not itch, it also wicks well and keeps you warm when wet. Wear these underneath in deepest darkest winter, they will keep you warm. Also Sealskinz is a good brand for thermals or woolly hats/gloves.

u/Idiot_Savant_Tinker · 6 pointsr/bicycling

I have a pair of these gloves that I wear when riding my motorcycle.

The chain glove is a great idea though, and you can buy them, but ye cats, they're expensive.

u/CBalls · 6 pointsr/Military

Mechanix Originals always served me well.

u/amateur_acupuncture · 6 pointsr/skiing

Most days I wear Kinco Deerskin Gloves and they are warm and durable. They suffice in most Sierra Conditions. If the deerskin gets wet, it dries supple, unlike cow leather. For storm days, I generally wear these Kincos. Both pairs get snosealed in the oven, and work pretty well.

Next time you're on the hill, look around, and chances are the Patrollers, Lift Mechanics, and other personnel who work outside will be similarly gloved. Kincos are our industry standard because they are warm, cheap, and durable. My "ski" gloves sit in a drawer collecting dust, because my Kincos are better, and I'm not worried about ruining them on the clock.

u/terrabasedcrash · 6 pointsr/The_Donald
u/wicksa · 6 pointsr/BeautyAddiction

I own aquariums and have cats and dogs (I used to have rats! RIP Margo and Lilac). I am also a nurse, so I am constantly washing my hands.

  • Don't use alcohol based hand sanitizers.

  • Get a moisturizing hand soap for home (I use softsoap, its pretty cheap).

  • I use these gloves when I am rearranging/cleaning out my aquarium to protect my skin from the chemicals.

  • This hand cream is awesome. Even if you just apply it in the morning when you wake up, and at night before bed, you will notice a difference. Its small enough that I can keep it in my scrub pockets and apply it after washing my hands every once in a while throughout the day.

  • You can slather your hands in moisturizer/vaseline before bed and put on some gloves like these while you sleep. I have tried it a few times, and it makes my hands soft, but it feels weird to sleep with gloves on.

  • You could try using something like New-Skin on your hangnails instead of band aids to protect them from bacteria while they heal. They are less unsightly and the rats are less likely to pick them off.

    Those are all the tips I can think of right now! Hopefully something in there is useful!
u/CubanRalph · 6 pointsr/motorcycles
u/Chaosritter · 6 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Get a pair of those:

I carry a pair with me during work, really handy when you deal with sharp objects of any kind.

u/SoldierOnce · 5 pointsr/CampingandHiking

For non-cold weather wear I like my Mechanix gloves for just about everything.

u/jamesvreeland · 5 pointsr/AdventureRacing
  1. If you are planning on buying one specifically for the event, a generic mil-surp ruck will handle your first few challenges. I would avoid frame packs, as challenges can be pretty awkward if you can trying to wrestle around a metal frame during PT.
    Another option is to ask around inside of the Facebook group for your event. There might be an alumni willing to loan you a spare ruck.

  2. Your ruck and bricks are usually the least unpleasant aspect of what you'll be carrying around. I'd focus on getting as strong as possible at your current bodyweight, instead of cutting weight (and strength, and endurance) to be allowed to carry fewer bricks. If keeping the 5 pounds makes you more capable of lugging around a water can, log, chunk of sidewalk, buddy, etc... that's the way to go.

  3. Regular old Mechanix gloves have served me very well, and are pretty cheap. If I know the area is really sandy (and likely to work its way in to the velcro and open up the glove), I've been known to throw a strip of electrical tape around my wrist to just strap the things on for the challenge.

  4. The dedicated training plans on the site are quite good (so is Military Athlete, though not free -, but just following as much of as possible is my recommendation. A lot of effort goes in to their programming.
    A 40# sandbag can function as half the gear you need for a basic fitness program at home.
u/wiscondinavian · 5 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I know this is kind of stupid, but I've been using work gloves instead of pot holders for a while.

Plus: they're cheap. They fit to your hand so you can have more control. They're meant for industrial use, so they should last a long time.

I can't find one on amazon, but they're somewhat between these: and the regular latex dipped work gloves.

u/cameronabab · 5 pointsr/airsoft

You're really not gonna get a consensus on this, this is such a subjective question.

Personally, I recommend you start off with something like base level Mechanix. They're a bit cheaper than other options, are decently sturdy, and a good introduction into what you want out of combat gloves.

Those coyote ones are what I currently use and they're far far better than the 5.11 gloves I started with. The 5.11s started to fall apart after a few months and were just overall less comfortable than the Mechanix.

u/Brazensage · 5 pointsr/landscaping

If you have a harbor freight near you I would say get a few pairs of these:

If you don't, you can never go wrong with kincos. They are probably the best known company for making durable work gloves:

u/zxj4k3xz · 4 pointsr/airsoft

Solid choice of gear. You'll probably regret those fingerless gloves when you get in the fingernail though. Hurts like hell. What I see a lot of people do is get something like Mechanix and just cut off the ends of the index finger and thumb, as that's really all you need. I just use Mechanix M-pacts and have no problems doing whatever I need to.

Yes, a One Tigris will fit much more comfortably than a mesh mask. What you can do, though, is bend the mesh to fit better. You can also take off the cloth on the edges (Heat it to melt glue, then peel it off), and cut the mesh to fit better, then glue the cloth back on.

u/slipperymagoo · 4 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

I have two pairs of these.

Super warm in the winter, too.

u/coolshifts · 4 pointsr/news
u/PulpHero · 4 pointsr/Military

A miniature sewing kit. When you’re running missions outside, clothes tend to get ripped, and with only limited numbers, life can get rough. A sewing kit helps.
Spirarcha chili sauce. If your soldier likes spicy foods, send them this. It’s spicy, it has flavor, and it will last them a few months.

Socks and underwear. Send them hiking socks and replacement pairs of underwear. Clothes tend to get gross and if they don’t have laundry, sometimes it is for the best to toss out old underclothes and wear new ones.

Beef jerky.

Trail mix of various types.

Great ideas for one-time gifts. These range from relatively cheap, to pricy and are a great surprise to a soldier stationed anywhere. I’ve included links to the products to give you an idea of what they look like, though don’t take those links as the only/cheapest place to find them:

Adjustable two-point sling. On base they have to carry around a weapon everywhere, and on mission they’ll be going some serious distance with it in their hands. If they are still using an Army-issue plain sling life is going to get a bit annoying. An adjustable two-point sling makes things more convenient and lets them ready a weapon to fire without an awkward movement on a mission. Ignore this if they are using a machine-gun, because those use heavy duty slings. Various companies make these, I prefer the VTAC, but they are all similar in make.

Surefire Earplugs. On mission, soldiers are supposed to wear earplugs, but many don’t because its uncomfortable and often all they are issued are cheap low qualifty plugs. Surefire earplugs conform to the shape of the ear and they are designed to allow someone to still be able to hear conversation level noise while protecting from high level noise. These are great.

Head-Loc helmet straps. One of the greatest pains is a helmet that won’t stay secure. The Head-Loc straps stay tighter and make the helmet so comfortable that you forget you’re wearing it.

PMAGs. Magpul plastic magazines, or PMAGs are high quality replacements for metal GI magazines. Army issued metal magazines are often used for years past the date that they should be retired and they are prone to feeding issues (I won’t get into the details) and PMAGs fix many of those issues and give a soldier more confidence in their equipment. A combat load is 7 magazines, so don’t feel the need to buy more than that, and even one or two PMAGs is greatly appreciated. Ignore if they are using a machinegun.

Head-lamp. Walking around an outpost at night is tricky and Afghanistan can get dark, a head-lamp is a great help to keep your soldier from stubbing their toe or walking into barbed wire. Get only with some kind of red or blue light filter.

Mechanix gloves. Soldiers need to wear gloves on mission and they tend to get torn up, a replacement pair of mechanixs gloves is a good choice.

Better yet, a nitrile glove over these NoCry Cut Resistant Gloves - High Performance Level 5 Protection, Food Grade. Size Medium, Free Ebook Included!

u/SchrodingersCatfight · 4 pointsr/blogsnark

I got some cut resistant gloves as a gift last year and they look kind of goofy but it's better than losing a fingertip. Otherwise I just use mine very very very carefully and slowly and also not often at all.

u/theejaybles · 4 pointsr/KitchenConfidential

Cut Gloves can be pretty affordable to have on hand for people doing prep or dishwashers that don't have a lot of knife experience. Way cheaper to have these "on hand" than a hospital bill or L&I costs

u/when_i_die · 3 pointsr/airsoft

To add onto this since you have no gear:

Buy one of these batteries:

One of these smart chargers: (it is definitely worth the money to not fry a battery)

Some gloves like these:

A lower face mesh like this:

Some ANSI z87.1 goggles from basically anywhere or a painball mask to substitute for those and the face mesh

And that should be enough to get started

u/obtix · 3 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Yeah. I've been using Mechanix for yard work and other random projects for years. The last pair lasted over two years -

I biked to work today. It was windy, but altogether a pretty pleasant ride overall. I guess I can provide a few tips.

u/a350z4me · 3 pointsr/camping

Welding gloves work really well, too.

I have had this set for 2 years and use them for shuffling logs, moving embers for cooking, moving pots and dutch ovens, and moving charcoal in a grill. Not really recommended, but they work great. Think of them as super oven mitts.

u/The_Arc_Artisan_ · 3 pointsr/Welding

I'd buy these over those.

u/Kylar_Stern · 3 pointsr/SweatyPalms

You could just get one of these to be safe, although they are a little pricey.

These after applying some of this. Cheap, and it's what a lot of the on mountain staff use every day of the season.

Well, not gloves, but you can get some kevlar sleeves.

u/BadNeighbour · 3 pointsr/KitchenConfidential

Get a 10 dollar cut glove and no one should hurt themselves on a madoline ever again. I've tried cutting through mine with my very sharp chef knife and it does nothing.

u/Dashing_Delight · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Something you need to mention to a doc about. Mean time only thing that I could think of would be arm length gloves. (For if you want to be a mad scientist)

u/ThomBraidy · 3 pointsr/Cooking

gloves, something along the lines of these:

everyone's talking about graters and microplanes and that's all well and good til you get a nice big chunk out of your hands.

Are they a little goofy? yes, sure. will you cut your hands? no!

u/MorallyDeplorable · 3 pointsr/shittyaskreddit

That's quitter talk. Go put these on and make her happy.

u/ItWorkedLastTime · 3 pointsr/ArtisanVideos

Or just buy cut resistant gloves. I have a pair, and I never use a mandolin without it.

u/RocketBingo · 3 pointsr/Woodcarving

Mind you I have only used this stuff to carve this one tiny thing but I figure I can always upgrade to different tools if I stick with it for a while and decide these things need an upgrade. Next time I buy supplies, I’m definitely finding another retailer for larger pieces of Basswood though. The selection on Amazon sucks a bit.

I have an OXO stainless steel folding mandolin and I love it. So. Yeah. I just got into Japanese cuisine for work, and am so thankful that I'm an age-old mandolin-er. I also bought a cut-resistant glove at the same time, and would never ever EVER use the crappy guards that come with any mandolin.

u/CamsX · 2 pointsr/acrl

Been using gloves since I got my T300RS, as the rubber covered wheel was a bit too harsh on my hands compared to my old G25's leather.

In the AC official forum I got recommended this Mechanix Fastfit gloves. Inexpensive, good drip and not too warm. Good enough for sim racing.

Around June I switched to the Racequip 2 layer Nomex gloves I got for Real Life track action. Much more expensive and warm than the Mechanix ones.

u/doebedoe · 2 pointsr/vandwellers
  • Kreg pocket hole jig -- $40 to make carpentry projects super easy.
  • Rivnut tool -- for mounting things to sheet metal.
  • Shop towels -- more versatile paper towels.
  • good cooler -- ice last 5-8 days even in the middle of summer heat.
  • bug nets for windows -- but them pre-made or build your own. Gives you airflow in summer without letting the bugs in.
  • candle lantern -- cheap. Safe if you blow it out before crawling into bed. Nice soft lighting to give you a break from blue LEDs.
  • Aeropress coffee maker -- great coffee where ever you are. Quick and easy to clean.
  • mechanic gloves -- for when you've got to do work and don't want super greasy hands and bloody knuckles.

Not sure about those guys, but Sting wore Mechanix gloves during his WCW run as crow sting

u/MeadeNJ · 2 pointsr/spartanrace

I've always used Mechanix gloves:

Good, general use gloves - it comes down to personal preference, but I like the finger coverage especially for pulling the gravel into the buckets or hauling the logs around

u/PartOfTheTribe · 2 pointsr/crossfit
u/Eisenstein · 2 pointsr/AskElectronics

For scope: get a used tek on craigslist

For function generator: this kit

For iron: Hakko 888

You probably want a bench PSU as well: Korad 3005D

You need safety gear too!

u/ween0t · 2 pointsr/BurningMan

I use these mostly if its actual real work i'm doing. Camp setup, tear down, etc.

But then I also have a pair of fingerless biking gloves that I use as well. For my daily carry I usually keep the biking gloves if i venture out. The fingerless are good if you want more dexterity and its hot out. In camp I always have the more durable work gloves handy if I need more protection.

u/jey2101 · 2 pointsr/foodhacks

Try a kevlar glove. Its great for using with a grater or mandolin without worrying about slicing up your hands.

u/jersully · 2 pointsr/DealsReddit

It's not like it comes up halfway to the elbow, just a bit higher up the arm.

Another option is welder's gloves! These are under $11 (Prime) for a PAIR! And these extra length gloves are $16.50 (again, Prime) also for a pair.

I suspect you could find the welding gloves cheaper at a local hardware store. I bought the welding gloves based on Alton Brown's recommendation, but the Ove Glove and Pitt Mitt have better dexterity, so I prefer them for oven use.

my oven mitts. You can get uglier for 5$ or goes to your elbows for 15$.

Maybe not the best for pulling pork, but welders gloves are great for the grill. They can be had for not much more than a good pair of leather gardening gloves.

u/Soverance · 2 pointsr/Welding

I recently started teaching myself to MIG weld in my garage, and went with these products:

  • Gloves
  • Helmet
  • Jacket

    I can attest to them being quality products, especially considering their price. I didn't get a cap, because I didn't really know that was a thing... but I just wear a baseball cap backwards and it seems to work fine.
u/two-dollars · 2 pointsr/Denver

I use get a pair of these to ski in. Best money I've ever spent on gloves. I'm sure they could be found at a hardware store around town.

u/barking-chicken · 2 pointsr/AskTrollX

I have cut myself on my damn kitchen knives so many times. I got a mandoline slicer for my birthday last year and (before even opening the box) got a set of cut resistant gloves like these. After almost shredding my first one I've replaced them again, but I haven't cut myself again so its totally worth $10/year.

u/DrMrsElMonarch · 2 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Wanna keep your fingers and not have to deal with the stupid guard your mandolin came with? By a cut proof glove =)

Mandoline and a cut resistant glove ... have a look at the comments on any mandonline on Amazon before you pass on the idea.

u/ryzzie · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Ever try those cut resistant gloves?

u/NettingStick · 2 pointsr/Woodcarving

Cut gloves are always a good bet! I’m most familiar with this style, from my days in the restaraunt industry. They’re a little easier to cut through that the next style, but you shouldn’t get hurt even if you cut through the glove. The grip on woven gloves is also much better.

These guys are essentially chainmail armor, but they don’t really allow a good grip on hard, smooth surfaces like most wood. Also they could mar the surface of the wood, depending on your grip strength and the wood.

As counter-intuitive as it sounds, dull knives are way more scary than sharp knives. Sharp knives cut where you want to cut, and require less pressure to do so. Dull knives require more pressure to cut, and are more likely to jump suddenly during a cut. It’s safer to always keep your knife sharp!

They're quite cheap actually. Save yourself many a bloody knuckles.

u/ChefM53 · 2 pointsr/cookingforbeginners

I have a couple of devices to suggest that might help you out a little bit. And then some Recipes..

[Salad Cutter bowl]

[Cut resistant gloves]

These could be used I think for chopping some smaller items too not just herbs

[Herb Scissors]

[Onion Chopper]

Some of the items in this dish can be purchased ready to go like the onions and bell peppers. I also buy diced pickled jalapeños to use in dishes cause I can't touch them.

In this recipe they want you to cook the chicken from raw and then shred it. that could pose quite a challenge. I used rotisserie chicken already chopped that worked better for me.

[Homemade Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup]

[Black Bean Garnachas]

For this one I would buy the carrots already sliced.

[Campbell's Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice]

One of those chopper devices would help here unless you buy the frozen chopped onions.

[Cauliflower Breakfast Muffins]

[Cheesey Flounder Florentine]

[Chicken Alfredo Casserole]


[Dreamy Vegan Tomato Soup]

[Easy Roasted Mushrooms]

[Easy Sesame Noodles]

Again Maybe?

[Easy Vegan Cold Pasta Salad]

[Easy Vodka Sauce]

u/ElHermanoLoco · 2 pointsr/Charcuterie

I got one of these at a local kitchen supply store (for waaay more than Amazon charges, now that I look. Whoops).

Also as a PSA, if you don't already have one, get a kevlar glove so you don't cut your fingertips off (I would have cut myself a couple times on this project if I didn't have one, sliced through the nitrile gloves).

u/gbgopher · 2 pointsr/Plumbing

There's these. You'd need the 11" model. Not sure if it would work though. Pipe cutters get a bit finicky if they're not rolling straight and a baseball is not a smooth surface. Idk, kinda expensive for a maybe.

Cut resistant gloves like these might be a better investment.

u/papercraft_dildo · 2 pointsr/gifs

I'm notorious in my house for slicing my hands in stupid ways while in the kitchen, so my wife got me a pair of these. She did not enjoy my demonstration of them as I tried to cut my palm open. They work pretty well. I highly recommend them or something like them!

I was thinking leather gloves, but are you talking about something like these?:

u/chileheadd · 2 pointsr/Cooking


Thought the slice I took out of my thumb was a lot smaller than it is. Re-bandaging last night convinced me to get a glove.

u/Connorthedev · 2 pointsr/Tools

Maxiflex. Hands down. Feel good, fit my hands well, not very thick, but not too thin. I found myself eating lunch with them on sometimes... 9/10 would recommend. Just don't get them soaked.

These specifically.

Kinco "Ski" gloves. I have like 3 pair. You will want some leather water proofer. Not great in wet weather.

I use these electronic ear muffs. They work quite well but sometimes you have to double up if the guy next to you has a big boom stick. Gloves I use Mechanix, they're cheap and good.

u/The-Canadian-Jester · 1 pointr/airsoft

I setup a little photoshoot for you guys, the only thing bad is that I didn't have a decent camera on me today. Anyways, here is my new night parka setup. This is a pretty cheap loadout to replicate so if you want to look to see if you can replicate it, go ahead! Here is my loadout to what follows:

u/CloffWrangler · 1 pointr/boostedboards

I use some Mechanix gloves. They’re light enough that I can still use the remote with them. They’re not the greatest when it starts to get down to like under 30° but they’re better than nothing.


u/fourknotsnowhere · 1 pointr/scooters

ive found that your traditional bulky winter golves and be a hassle for small controls on your panel so i go with a pair of these

decent wind/water/cut protection

u/Phastor · 1 pointr/EDC

I used these back when I was a security guard. Used them because I touched a lot of doorknobs and gates on patrol and my hands would get nasty and gross.

Weren't too hot in the summer and kept my hands warm enough in the winter, but I was still able to do things pretty much normal such as riffling through a key ring for the right key and whatnot.

The only issue I had with them is the velcro would blow out after a few months, but that's only because I was constantly taking them off and on in between patrols every hour. Don't imagine that would be an issue under normal use.

Generally gloves are unnecessary at a race. If it's cold or the terrain is garbage, then maybe. However, gloves are basically required at HH and HH12HR. I'd recommend Mechanix gloves like these

u/fidelitypdx · 1 pointr/CampingGear

I use Mechanix gloves - favorite is Mechanix Original Covert Large , you just have to keep in mind they're disposable and will break. I also have a pair of leather gardening gloves that I bring along when I'm foraging wood.

u/vankorgan · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Here. I use these for camping and fire prep. work great.

u/Votearrows · 1 pointr/weightroom

Yeah, same setup. I have low ceilings and artsy door arches, so I do pullups on a pipe outside. Sometimes I'll wear some of those form-fitting work gloves. Nothing too thick, but something so I'm not touching the metal directly.

u/BrandMuffin · 1 pointr/techtheatre

I use gloves with leather palms like these. They work well as general purpose gloves.

u/joestue · 1 pointr/MechanicAdvice

depending on what you are doing.
might try these. with thin nitrile over the top.

if that just doesn't work for you, might try these.

another option might be the thinnest cotton gloves you can find, and wear them under nitrile gloves. change the cotton gloves every few hours, since you'll be cutting a hole in the nitrile or latex gloves just as often.

u/GrandmaGos · 1 pointr/gardening

You can try Kevlar gloves. But caltrops can sometimes stab you even through those.

Otherwise, thick leather, awkwardness and all. But caltrops can stab you even through those.

With caltrops, there isn't really a good answer, sorry.

u/NastyGuido · 1 pointr/recipes

Like many comments in here, use your hand guard! I've cut myself many a times just thinking it'll be faster without the hand guard. Or you can get yourself a cut resistant glove:

u/Laureril · 1 pointr/talesfromtechsupport

That would be a Doctor question, not a me question. Best I can do is suggest you consider a Kevlar or chainmail glove if you're worried about knives while cooking.

u/atvar8 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

What a wonderful idea for a contest.

I've had a rough time recently, some real ups and downs... but in order to keep this from sounding like a sob story I'll spare the details. If you're curious, I don't mind answering questions in PM's.

What I really need is my car fixed, but that's just something I'll have to take care of in order of priority. I don't have any friends here (in my town), but I am going over to meet a guy tonight that's going to help me build my forge. By all indications this could be my first local friend, and I'm excited for a couple reasons, one being having a friend, and two being FIRE!! FIREE!!! FI... uh... Blacksmithing!

Speaking of fire though, Blacksmithing carries a certain risk. Not only are you dealing with a coal (or gas) fire that can get upwards of (or higher than) 2000 degrees Fahrenheit (1093 C for those of you using that system.) but you are heating and handling that metal. I built a small soup-can gas forge and hammered a little bit on a railroad spike, but wasn't using proper tongs or PPE. I hit it, my pliers lost their grip and the hot spike flew up and hit me in the face just below my right eye. I got lucky it didn't hit my eye. Even though it only made momentary contact, it still burned and hurt for a week.

So, right now the items on my wishlist that would actively benefit my continued well-being would be the safety equipment on it. There's a heavy apron, a pair of welding gloves and a pair of decent safety goggles that would help protect me from flying super-heated metal.

u/D3adlyR3d · 1 pointr/woodstoving

u/ArdvarkMaster · 1 pointr/AmItheAsshole

Knife-Proof Glove

An excellent solution

u/eogreen · 1 pointr/Cooking

I've got this one. Works like a treat with four different cutting options. The handheld guard is good, but you do end up with some waste that becomes too small to carefully cut.

You could buy metal gloves to protect yourself.

u/Penguintx · 1 pointr/Fishing

Dexter are about the best for the price but they're not fancy.

I actually like my fillet knife from Cutco. The blade is extendable and it has a leather sheath.

Bubba blade fillet knives are popular. I don't have one. They come in different sizes and styles.

One product I didn't think I needed but now I can't live without is a fillet glove. Here is one for example glove

I use these for a few months at a time working in the desert, granted i'm not clearing brush or anything, just light construction. I also use them at home in my shop every day.

u/EvolvingMachinery · 1 pointr/ultimate

Several people I play with use Gorilla Grips from Homedepot; I have used them and they work very well. Another industrial glove I have used is MaxiFlex Ultimate and I love them but are harder to find in stores.

I have tried Huck Nation (didn't like them at all) and Friction gloves (good, but not worth the price) and neither of them compared to the value of $3-$5 gloves found at your local hardware store. When in doubt look for gloves with a Nitrile coating and you will be very happy.

u/dpr1me · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I found that the coating flakes off fairly quickly when I use these. (commercial carpentry) I use these They're also the type of gloves my foreman was buying for the crew during framing. Good dexterity with screws but you'll need to tape your finger if you're cutting drywall. They don't take repeated friction too well.

u/AWandMaker · 1 pointr/Wandsmith

As always, when starting carving I always recommend getting a pair of cut gloves. They are less than $10 and even if you only wear one on the hand holding the wood, they can save you from some serious cuts.

Especially when first learning. If you’re trying to get through a knot, the grain takes the blade in an unexpected direction, or for whatever reason the blade slips.

They aren’t perfect, you can still stab directly into them, but it lessens the depth. But they will protect you from slices. Mine have paid for themselves at least three times through not having to visit the doctor for stitches.

Also, whatever knife you get, make sure it locks (if folding). The best way to cut the hand holding the knife is to have it fold closed on you.
