Hey,
After a handsaw accident of cutting the side of my finger a bit, im searching for good gloves to prevent that in the future.
Any suggestions for a good glove to stop a cut from a handsaw?
It doesn't need to be specialized for other tools I only cut branches out of my trees around the house we a manual handsaw.

Welcome to the forum. I'd say leather gloves, tougher than fabric and less likely to snag on the saw.

Don't recall ever cutting myself with a handsaw. Of course, I make sure I keep my fingers clear of the teeth also.

I would think leather would work well. They do make cut resistant gloves I believe with some metal threads weaved through it.

Howdy, welcome. I think there are some cut resistant gloves some butchers use, but they are mesh and would snag on the saw. For a hand saw, leather seems best, but don't wear gloves with power saws because if they catch a tooth, they'll drag your hand right in.

Thick leather gloves and careful use of the handsaw should provide you with enough to keep the hands safe.

Try mechanics gloves you can get them almost anywhere including Harbor Freight. They are strong and flexible. Anything thick would be hard to grip a saw with.
