    So, I got a little creative this weekend.
    These are perfect to go along with a more traditional kit.
    These belts are made from full grain leather and are hand stitched, stained and finished. Both buckles are hand forged, one from steel, the other from copper, and both have beautiful and unique hammered textures. They are 1.75" wide. The top belt is 52" long, and the other is 56".
    Both of these are available and priced at $100. Don't hesitate to contact me!

    I like that the stitching on the loop is on the outside. (Being very fashion conscious myself):)

    NICE WORK, LOVE THE STITCHING

    been wearing an old belt i made up some years ago w/ a cast iron harness chain hook on it for a buckle

    those of us who don't have the forging knowledge/abilities have to substitute whatever we can get our hands on

    Love them. I can't afford one right now or I would snatch that copper one up so fast it would make your head spin (Still fighting with SS Disability after three years :() I love your work, those are both amazing belts.

    Edited to Add: Hold that thought... in discussion with the wife... may have to see if I can sell off some of my reloading stuff on another site... If somebody grabs it before I do I will understand...

    God Bless, and One Love!

    So glad you like them! Just let me know if you want it! I also have another leather strap to make one if someone gets it before you.

    Sounds like a winner. I've got the flu currently (Yay me!), and my wife pointed out last night just before I posted the list of for sale items up at another place that I probably didn't want to handle and ship them off and risk somebody else getting sick. So if it's still available when I get over being sick (and assuming I can get some stuff sold to make the money) I'll grab it off of you. If it isn't still available, then I'll see about getting you to make me another one.

    I've got to say one of the things that has attracted me so much to these belts of yours are the length. Right now I'm a big out of shape guy and finding a belt up in that 56" range is rare. That should theoretically even fit if I decided to use it as a gun and knife belt over my clothes instead of just a "hold my pants up" belt. The other thing, besides those great buckles, is that burnishing, or darkening (dunno the proper term) you've done at the holes, seems, and edges. To me that is just a great look, and the color on them is outstanding. Along with those copper rivets and sinew(?) sewing.... I just like 'em. I'll be honest I don't normally get hung up on gear I haven't held and looked over but I'm really obsessing over that belt :p

    God Bless, and One Love!

    I'm not going to be able to purchase a belt from you. I do apologize, but a family emergency has come up, and it looks like every dime for the foreseeable future is going to be spoken for by more doctors.

    Again I'm sorry.

    God Bless, and One Love.

    Do you sell the buckles alone?
