These remind me of Vintage Carrera and Vintage Derapage designs that are maybe the inspiration behind these frames.

I have a slightly different view here, I think the production of leather jackets should stop here until they find a way to make a sword sharper than a Samurai sword.
Here are a few from ebay that look good to my eyes.
A fairly expensive Georg Jensen Plain Gold Tie Bar with a wicked shape.
An Engine turned design with a nice patina.
Another Georg Jensen tie bar in silver.
A good one from Dunhill...

Thanks for the link and your thoughts, though an optimist in me has some hopes that someone will post a picture of a tie clip more classic than a plain silver one.
