The Gauntlet of Challenge was the item needed to challenge Death, Lord Samhain.

It is made of black iron and the purist silver covered in black enamel.[1] It has a message inscribed upon it;

"Flesh may cross the portal,
and seek its master Death.
Flesh may go where Death has trod,
and challenge, like Scheherazade,
He Who Reigns Beneath the Sod,
to spare a mortal's breath."

Another message upon its back stated;

To challenge Death, lift up no human hand.
To fight with Death, take up no earthly sword.
The hand is here--the sword is yours.[2]
