Hi,

I am looking for a safety glove to hold small workpieces while carving.
I didn't succeed in locating an address in Great Britain (or Holland) selling the kevlar/gripper gloves used in the USA.
Your suggestions are appreciated!

Hans

I'm not sure if these:

are the Kevlar gloves that you are referring to, but if so then have a look in Lidl. I found these gloves in a local Lidl store for €6 recently. They look like they match the descripton on the Lee Valley site pretty well i.e. good for protection against cuts but provide very little protection against punctures. Lee Valley also sell gloves which are puncture resistant, although I've never tried them myself.
