The Work Glove Triple Threat

February 3, 2021

Brass Knuckle® SmartCut™ BKCR303 offers dexterity, grip, and cut protection

CLEVELAND–OSHA estimates that more than 70 percent of hand and arm injuries could be prevented with the proper protective equipment. Lack of compliance is often the greatest challenge to workplace safety, and compliance increases when PPE is comfortable to wear. That means considering form and fit as well as function.


Brass Knuckle® SmartCut™ BKCR303 gloves succeed on three fronts by providing dexterity, grip and ANSI cut level A2 protection. This triple threat is accomplished with a glass fiber and ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) shell — a composite yarn that has a strength-to-weight ratio eight to 15 times greater than steel — and polyurethane coating. The thinner, 13-gauge material delivers deftness without trading away its inherent cut-resistance.

The non-sticky polyurethane coating on the palm and fingers features excellent grip, even against oils, fats, and greases, and can deliver enhanced puncture protection and abrasion resistance, all without adding bulk or reducing touch sensitivity.

In addition, the glove’s uncoated back and wrist improves ventilation. A seamless and stretchable full knit wrist provides a snug fit and prevents dirt, debris, and cold from getting inside glove. Color-coded cuffs easily indicate glove size.

Brass Knuckle designed the BKCR303 to provide enhanced flexibility and deliver the right balance of mechanical protection, performance, and comfort. For more information, visit
