Everything about gloves.

Glove guys know best…

This week I had the pleasure to meet another Glove Guru who represents one of the best glove companies in the world. (No pun intended for those in the know)

As with any good glove business guy who wants to establish a rapport, he followed up with an e-mail (nice touch).

I found it interesting that his e-mail signature contained some very useful information.

FACT: Each hand contains: 29 major and minor bones, 29 major joints, at least 123 named ligaments, 34 muscles which move the fingers and thumb, 48 nerves and 30 named arteries. Those facts put a whole new perspective on what our products are actually protecting…

I’ve since invited him for lunch when he is in the area again and I’ll make sure he adds cut protection and heat protection issues to his agenda. He knows best, but he is also helping raising the bar with hand protection issues.

In the meantime, you can check out our Glove University. We call it GO U.
