Sailmakers' Palms

These are used as a sort of thimble to mend sails. Instead of using one's thimble (middle) finger, one can push a sailmaker's needle through canvas using one's entire palm. In sailmaking, like so many of life's challenges, the application of even the most firm, fully extended middle finger is not quite enough.
These are available through Go2Marine for $20.97 for right-handed and $23.95 for left-handed.
