Cut-resistant gloves protect against lacerations and some punctures caused by handling metal, glass, and other sharp items. Knit gloves are made of woven fabrics so they're more breathable than leather gloves. Mechanics- and riggers-style gloves are more formfitting than other glove styles. Leather gloves have a liner or cut-resistant stitching to increase cut resistance. Leather is naturally abrasion-resistant and protects against incidental contact with heat and sparks. Chainmail gloves are made from metal mesh and are worn under disposable gloves to protect against extreme hazards encountered when using knives.
