montillet/equus/duret

Certainly agreed. 

 

The biggest problem is none of my belts wear out, so once you have one in every color it gets hard to justify getting more!

Yes - thats a better one :-) The £ has collapsed against the $ though, good time to collect :-)

I'm planning to add Baranil to the Stratfield range, I have the prototype in my wardrobe, just need to add the product to the website. Im also slowly developing the next of our special edition buckles which will be a Damascus Stratfield, the curves of the buckle will look amazing I think, and then some more exotic alloys. Still at the drawing stage but progressing!

It hasn't progressed beyond a first draft CAD drawing yet so no photos as yet. However watch this space!

Damascus or any of the other exotic alloys are fascinating metals. They are composed of layers of different metals forged together and worked such that the layers form random or non random patterns. On the whole a finished piece is etched or patinated which exploits the different characteristics of the different layers to enhance and colourise the design. There's starting to be some amazing modern work done in the area and some very exciting craftspeople and alloys being used. Great area for us for special editions

Damascus can produce some stunning patterns. Especially when mixed with different colour metals such as copper and brass like this one

Yup, absolutely. As well as the traditional Damascus versions theres some beautiful exotic alloys like Timascus and the more traditional Mokum Gane varients, plus Ive seen beautiful work using superconductors. Its an exiting time in metalwork, theres a lot of creative people doing great stuff. Keep watching this space, I have various cunning plans :-)

I play golf and had two putters milled from damascus steel. It's a beautiful metal, but damn expensive.

Yes! We've been working with it for years and Ive always thought the beauty per £ is well worth while.

We have a batch of these in production in Japan at the moment, hopefully shouldnt be long now

I think @justinkapur has the same boot coming in as well...





@fairlynerdy, @justinkapur I think we have your dark grey problem solved



iPhone photo under flourescent light, but nice Storm Grey in grained calf we can make into a Calf L&R if you like?

Is it the back photo or the front one?

Back, its not quite as dark as the photo but close. The front is a sample of the light grey, too light for you I think

Could I be a pain in the ass and say to put it next to black as well to see the contrast?
