Description



CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS

[0001] This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 62/453,508, filed Feb. 2, 2017 and entitled "DISPOSABLE CUT RESISTANT GLOVE," the entire disclosure of which is incorporated herein by reference.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

[0002] The present general inventive concept relates generally to a glove, and specifically, to a disposable cut resistant glove.

2. Description of the Related Art

[0003] One of the biggest hazards when cooking for the average person, or even a professional chef, is cutting themselves when preparing food. It doesn't matter how much experience someone has in the kitchen, nicks and cuts are bound to happen.

[0004] Therefore, there is a need for a device to protect user's fingers during food preparation.

[0005] Also, there is a need for a disposable cut resistant glove that prevents a person from being cut with cooking utensils while preparing food.

[0006] Moreover, there is a need for an inexpensive solution to preventing injury due to knife-cuts while cooking.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0007] The present general inventive concept is directed to a disposable cut resistant glove.

[0008] Additional features and utilities of the present general inventive concept will be set forth in part in the description which follows and, in part, will be obvious from the description, or may be learned by practice of the general inventive concept.

[0009] The foregoing and/or other features and utilities of the present general inventive concept may be achieved by providing a disposable cut resistant glove, including a body, a plurality of fingers attached to the body, a thumb attached to the body, and a plurality of strips of para-aramid synthetic fiber disposed over and around the plurality of fingers and the thumb.

[0010] The strips of para-aramid synthetic fiber may be glued on the fingers and the thumb of the disposable cut resistant glove.

[0011] The base disposable cut resistant glove may be made of at least one of plastic, latex, rubber, and cloth.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

[0012] These and/or other features and utilities of the present generally inventive concept will become apparent and more readily appreciated from the following description of the embodiments, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings of which:

[0013] FIG. 1 illustrates a first overhead view of a disposable cut resistant glove, according to an exemplary embodiment of the present general inventive concept; and

[0014] FIG. 2 illustrates a second overhead view of a disposable cut resistant glove, according to an exemplary embodiment of the present general inventive concept.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0015] Various example embodiments (a.k.a., exemplary embodiments) will now be described more fully with reference to the accompanying drawings in which some example embodiments are illustrated. In the figures, the thicknesses of lines, layers and/or regions may be exaggerated for clarity.

[0016] Accordingly, while example embodiments are capable of various modifications and alternative forms, embodiments thereof are shown by way of example in the figures and will herein be described in detail. It should be understood, however, that there is no intent to limit example embodiments to the particular forms disclosed, but on the contrary, example embodiments are to cover all modifications, equivalents, and alternatives falling within the scope of the disclosure. Like numbers refer to like/similar elements throughout the detailed description.

[0017] It is understood that when an element is referred to as being "connected" or "coupled" to another element, it can be directly connected or coupled to the other element or intervening elements may be present. In contrast, when an element is referred to as being "directly connected" or "directly coupled" to another element, there are no intervening elements present. Other words used to describe the relationship between elements should be interpreted in a like fashion (e.g., "between" versus "directly between," "adjacent" versus "directly adjacent," etc.).

[0018] The terminology used herein is for the purpose of describing particular embodiments only and is not intended to be limiting of example embodiments. As used herein, the singular forms "a," "an" and "the" are intended to include the plural forms as well, unless the context clearly indicates otherwise. It will be further understood that the terms "comprises," "comprising," "includes" and/or "including," when used herein, specify the presence of stated features, integers, steps, operations, elements and/or components, but do not preclude the presence or addition of one or more other features, integers, steps, operations, elements, components and/or groups thereof.

[0019] Unless otherwise defined, all terms (including technical and scientific terms) used herein have the same meaning as commonly understood by one of ordinary skill in the art to which example embodiments belong. It will be further understood that terms, e.g., those defined in commonly used dictionaries, should be interpreted as having a meaning that is consistent with their meaning in the context of the relevant art. However, should the present disclosure give a specific meaning to a term deviating from a meaning commonly understood by one of ordinary skill, this meaning is to be taken into account in the specific context this definition is given herein.

[0020] FIG. 1 illustrates a first overhead view of a disposable cut resistant glove 100, according to an exemplary embodiment of the present general inventive concept. This view illustrates a back-hand-portion of the disposable cut resistant glove 100.

[0021] The disposable cut resistant glove 100 may include a disposable cut resistant glove 110 that may be made from plastic, latex, rubber, cloth, or other suitable material known to one of ordinary skill in the art.

[0022] FIG. 2 illustrates a second overhead view of the disposable cut resistant glove 100, according to an exemplary embodiment of the present general inventive concept. This view illustrates a palm-portion of the disposable cut resistant glove 100.

[0023] Referring to FIGS. 1 and 2, the disposable cut resistant glove 100 may include a body 101, a plurality of fingers 130, and a thumb 140. Here, the plurality of fingers 130 and the thumb 140 are not human fingers, but finger and thumb extensions of the disposable cut resistant glove 100.

[0024] The disposable cut resistant glove 100 may include strips of para-aramid synthetic fiber or KEVLAR.RTM. tape 120 or other suitable material. The strips of KEVLAR.RTM. tape 120 may be disposed over and around the plurality of fingers 130 and the thumb 140 of the disposable cut resistant glove 110. The strips of KEVLAR.RTM. tape 120 may be glued (i.e., adhered) on the fingers 130 and the thumb 140 of the base disposable cut resistant glove 110, or may be attached to the fingers 130 during manufacturing of the disposable cut resistant glove 100.

[0025] The disposable cut resistant glove 100 may be designed to prevent accidents by protecting anyone who is utilizing sharp knives or utensils to prepare food. The disposable cut resistant glove 100 may include strips of KEVLAR.RTM. tape 120 for extra protection. Utilizing adhesive to adhere the strips of KEVLAR.RTM. tape 120 onto the disposable cut resistant glove 110, the disposable cut resistant gloves 100 are perfect to use at home or in restaurants particularly by chefs and/or culinary enthusiasts who cook daily. The disposable cut resistant gloves 100 may be readily available at household supply stores such as well-known multichannel retailers or TARGET.RTM. or WAL-MART.RTM. or any other suitable retailer.

[0026] Although a few embodiments of the present general inventive concept have been shown and described, it will be appreciated by those skilled in the art that changes may be made in these embodiments without departing from the principles and spirit of the general inventive concept, the scope of which is defined in the appended claims and their equivalents.
