The Memphis 1700 Big Jake Glove from MCR Safety is the top dog in our leather palm safety work glove line. Heavy-weight side cowhide leather is the most dense and abrasion resistant you'll find, and is cut extra-thick on the Big Jake. This isn't a lightweight garden glove, but if you handle rebar and concrete blocks all day, this is the glove for you. The Gunn cut style features heavy-weight leather on the palm, knuckles, thumb and forefinger. Heavy cotton duck fabric is tough while still breathing to help keep your hands cool and dry as possible. The rubberized safety cuff will hold its shape, even after going through the laundry. As tough as these gloves are, you may end up washing them more than once before they wear out. The Big Jake has heavy cotton jersey inside the glove to cushion the palm of your hand. This really helps when catching bricks or muscling a jack hammer around. All that, and they're sewn with strong Kevlar thread. Sold by the dozen.
Available in sizes Small, Medium, Large, Extra-Large and 2X-Large.
If the Big Jake is too heavy-duty for the work you have planned, please consider the Memphis 1400A Leather Palm Work Glove. They are made a little lighter and a little thinner, making them more flexible and comfortable in a less demanding environment.

I owned a pair of these that last about 15 years. Granted, I didn't use them everyday, but I gave them their share of tough yard work over that time and they held up incredibly well. Only bought a new pair because the thumb stitching wore out. I could easily have had that sewn up because the rest of the gloves were fine but it was not much more money to get a brand new pair. Highly recommended.
