Mirror Smashers?

What are the best gloves for smashing mirrors, and is it cool to embed pieces of ceramic in your knuckle protectors?

Check out the new Icon Ti Max gloves.

We think alike.

But what do you think about these new gloves? Do you think they will help in preventing a confrontation, or provoke it?

I would get those gloves but I can't justify $200-$300 on just gloves for the street.

I'm not asking if its cool to smash mirrors, I'm with scout on this one. What I'm asking are opinions on the new Icon Ti Max gloves, and if wearing those gloves might provoke or prevent a physical encounter with someone. They look like they're on the verge of simply being some stylish brass knuckles.

If you like them, np as cagers won't care. I get these as I wear them out as price is good and fit is perfect first time:

I wouldn't think about what they look like as no one will notice anything. I you ride a lot they will wear out in a couple years or so.
