Having looked at the web page in question, I would say that they are 
probably Not acceptable being knits... I have yet to find a knit that 
could pass a punch test.  Don't let the steel fiber fool you. A broken 
blade could still push through the weave, since it is yarn.  They are 
basically a sweater, that can't be cut.  So yeah you can sit there and 
run the blade of the knife across your arm all day and never get cut,  
but don't try to stab you arm cause it will most likely go right through.
Just my tuppence.

In going thru one of the catalogs the items below seemed to me to have some potential odd utility as arm protection in SCA fencing.  Does anyone have any work experience with the fabric that they are made out of when it is made into gloves or other garments?
