This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in November of 2018. If you spend your days fixing up cars, trimming trees, or prepping food in a commercial kitchen, then those tired arms are always at risk of harm. These cut-resistant protective sleeves do an impressive job of keeping your limbs safe, though they are, by no means, impervious to all blades, so you should still be cautious at all times. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

November 26, 2018:

We know that people who are at risk of cuts at their job often face other hazards — like burns from sparking power tools and hot fluids — which is why we included some sleeves that are also flame-resistant. It was important that reviewers noted they could gesture and move around easily in the sleeves, so a snug fit that still offered a bit of stretch so as not to hinder range of motion was a priority, too.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
