Mechanics- and riggers-style cut-resistant gloves are formfitting and have good dexterity to protect hands from cuts, dirt, grime, and blisters. They are sewn together from multiple pieces of leather so they are more formfitting and provide better dexterity than other gloves. Cut-resistant gloves are used wherever workers encounter sharp items, such as when installing ductwork, and handling cardboard, heavy plate glass, and cut and stamped metal. ANSI/ISEA cut levels indicate the level of protection provided. Higher numbers indicate more cut protection but they generally have less dexterity than gloves with lower levels of cut protection.
