Locking Gauntlet

Locking Gauntlet was a gauntlet used in 16th century which featured extra long fingers that could be locked to the wrist. This setup prevented a sword, axe or mace from being dislodged from warrior's hands. Simply a warrior could not be disarmed. These type of gauntlets were forbidden during tournaments and because of that this type of gauntlet was also called the forbidden gauntlet.
