These comfortable pair of gloves are made of super tough stainless steel and cut-resistant nylon cord. Machine washable. Technologically advanced manufacturing prevents wire breakage, even after machine washing. Protects against most types of accidental cuts, but is not cut proof or point-puncture resistant. We highly recommend only 1 glove be used at the time of cutting. The hand using the knife should not have a glove on. WARNING: Not for use with moving, serrated blades such as saws or meat slicers. Not for use with open flames.
