Culinaromancer's gloves 8, also called Rune gloves, are special metal gloves that can be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest after completion of 7 subquests in Recipe for Disaster (not including the starting subquest). As with all metal gloves, this piece of armour cannot be made using the Smithing skill.
Note that Rune gloves cannot be sold back to the Culinaromancer's Chest, or traded with another player. Thus, the only way of getting rid of it would be by using High Level Alchemy / Low Level Alchemy or by destroying the gloves. If the player choses to use an Alchemy on the gloves, they will lose 2,000 coins. These are the highest gloves players may obtain with an initiate pure account.
Rune gloves are very cheap compared to the next pair of gloves in line, the Dragon gloves. They cost only 5,000 coins compared to the 100,000 coins cost of Dragon Gloves or Barrows Gloves, and their bonuses are only slightly lower. Because of this, the majority of player-killers wear Rune gloves over Dragon gloves or Barrows gloves in order to save money. Many newer players use rune gauntlets over the gloves, however, rune gloves give much better attack and strength bonuses as well as being much easier to replace. As such, when fighting tough monsters it is advised to bring rune gloves, as they are far cheaper and less time consuming to get back.
Rune gloves require 50 Defence to equip after the Evolution of Combat update.
Unlike most untradeable items Rune gloves do not turn in to coins upon death in the wilderness. Instead you may run back and retrieve them. Whether or not this is a bug is unknown.
