Georgia, I do not cut the finger tips off the gloves. It never crossed my mind. lol Thanks for the tip! I really do recommend them as a preventative measure. One thing I might add about the gloves is, sometimes the hole where the index finger goes can be a little tight…you can take a pair of scissors and make the hole a little larger and the material will not fray, so don’t be afraid to do so. Now when I bought mine…they came two to a box for around $9. But buying them individually or in pairs, either way, they are a life saver. I really do recommend them for everyone.
