Crushgaunts, also called shuk'orok in Mando'a, were a type of strength-enhancing gauntlets created by the Mandalorians centuries before the Clone Wars. They were made of a reactive, polymer-enhanced material reinforced by beskar plates. They could increase their wearer's grip strength to the point that they could shatter bones, crush durasteel, and deflect weapons, even lightsaber blades.
