This conversation on sca-rapier has been fascinating, but I had a question
kingdom-centric, so I thought I'd narrow the focus to ansteorra-rapier:

Has anyone used a mail glove in official rapier combat?  Not for grabbing,
since that's illegal in Ansteorra at this time, but I'm curious if there
are concerns with its interaction with blades.  Any thoughts?

I ask because I've gotten into mail work, and one project idea that's been
brought up a time or two is mail gloves for rapier play.  Hate to make one
and then encounter concerns. :)
