Of Shadow and Flame
The swingefausten are an idiosyncratically dwarvish weapon. They have been known to sometimes be used as practical weaponry, but along with the prugmask, they are most commonly associated with the dwarvish sport dweorg ringen.
Swingefausten are a pair of semi-articulate oversized gauntlets which lock into fists. Each pair is custom made, and may be of different materials, colors, and sizes. Some have exaggerated knuckles with spikes, while others feature a wide, flat fused punching surface, allowing users differing equipment options depending on the aggression or defensiveness of their fighting style preference. Like most dwarvish works, swingefausten are usually ornately decorated, making each pair unique.
