When slicing food in a hurry, as most restaurants do, even the most adept hand can slip. In order to protect employees from harm, there are several different styles and sizes of cut resistant gloves available. The most important things to look at in a cutlery glove is the size and core safety material. Cut resistant gloves are typically constructed of material that is not easily slashed or punctured, like Kevlar, stainless steel or fiberglass. These materials are usually on the outer layer of the glove while the inner layer is composed of regular textile materials (like cotton) to provide comfort. Most of the gloves are knit or spun together and may resemble medieval chain mail. This method makes the gloves flexible, but one drawback is they may not be completely puncture-proof.
