Western inspired hand tooled work belt both strong and stylish with a decorative stitched inlaid border. The stitching is inside a groove to minimize wear from friction. This used to be the common way of stitching things but is one of those things that was deemed not cost effective by most firms.
The belt is constructed from Hermann Oak Old World Harness leather in 15-16oz. weight. It is made using a 100 year old recipe which has proven itself to stand the test of time. A truly remarkable material that I am proud to work with.
The hardware is a solid stainless steel buckle with hand hammered copper rivets. The rivets are not inexpensive double sided rivets which are prone to failure after several years but authentic rivets which require skill to hand hammer into place.
Belt is tailor fitted. Please measure from where the leather folds over the buckle to the most commonly used hole. I will add a nominal measurement to accommodate for the thickness of the leather. Just lay the belt flat on the ground and measure. Spacing is 3/4" for comfort with 7 holes.
Leather thickness is 7+mm and is Artisan quality harness leather which has traditionally been used for applications where durability is absolutely essential to life and limb. Nothing sold in "box" stores has ever been made from harness leather. Chances are you have never seen or felt leather of this quality unless you own a vintage horse saddle or vintage linesmen belt.
Would be an outstanding 3rd Anniversary gift.
