With a new book out in September – “Complete Guide to Soap Carving” – Janet has made it her mission to encourage soap carving and inspire creativity in young and old alike.
I am a woodcarver. The glove appears to be quite sturdy and cut resistant so far. But I found it to be too slippery to provide a good secure grip, so I added some stripes of "Plasti-Dip". Works fine now. As noted, get one or two sizes smaller than you think you need. One question I have is why can I not detect any metallic threads in the yard from which it is woven? Even using a 10x glass. In any case, The glove seems quite good so far. But I wonder about the alleged stainless steel component of the yarn.
Great safety accessory, a bit large.
I'm a pretty experienced woodworker but a novice carver. Carving a small piece of wood, I'd have a lot of small cuts if it weren't for this glove. As others have mentioned, it runs large, but I got a size smaller than usual, so that worked. My only real complaint is that the grip on what you're carving with this glove is a bit iffy. It might be nice if they had a rubberized coating on the palm and finger pads. I'd still buy it again, as the safety it gives is paramount.
Protects hand while carving. Will stop carving blade from slicing into your hand.
Best to start 2 size smaller
My hand size measures 9 inches (large). Based on comments from previous purchasers, I downsized my order to Medium. The medium was still too large, and I returned it for a small, which is only a little large, but hopefully won't stretch too much with use. While it seems a little extreme, it might be best to start out by downsizing TWO sizes, and then if that doesn't fit,exchange for a better size.
Gloves are way too large
If you are going to purchase one get it 2 sizes smaller than you would normally order
From previous comments indicating that sizes ran larger, I ordered a small instead of the medium, It is still way to big!
