Cut-resistant gloves are a type of protective gear that is worn on the hands to prevent cuts and other injuries. These gloves are typically made of materials that are designed to be strong and durable, yet flexible enough to allow for a full range of movement. Cut-resistant gloves are often used in industries and workplaces where there is a risk of coming into contact with sharp objects or blades, such as in construction, manufacturing, and food processing. They are also commonly used in activities that involve working with sharp tools or objects, such as woodworking, gardening, and cooking. Cut-resistant gloves are typically rated according to their level of protection, with higher ratings indicating greater resistance to cuts and other injuries.
