Equus Leather - Bridle Leather Belts - Official Affiliate Thread - Page 165

post #2461 of 2743

Since there's some damascus appreciation going on and I've mentioned it a few times, here's my damascus steel putter (stainless steel damascus body, titanium damascus medallion).

Seeing as one of our dogs decided to chew his collar which was lying in the living room, he's getting treated to a new one...biggrin.gif

Anyone who has purchased the Stratfield belt, can you please post a picture wearing it?  I could not find one in this thread or anywhere online.

Interesting! Is the bronze colour an etch or surface finish or somthing?

I'll try to get one of these sorted out in due course. We do much more product photography that modelled but we do plan to do some more modelled shots. In the meantime there are several people here with extensive collections, maybe they can help?

Torched and oil-quenched if I recall correctly, both the body and the medallion (the plate with screws that says machine).

That would be great!  I am really trying to see how the belt looks with the short belt flap since I am used to having 5" - 6" of flap after the buckle.

Very interesting. I think this is also a hardening treatment (ups the carbon content??). I am very much not a metallurgist though..

This method does up the carbon content, though only at the surface. The hardening is more related to the crystal structure and cooling of the metal. Basically the outside (in contact with fluid or oil in this case) cools before inside (still hot). Cooled surface contracts, forces the hot insides to rearrange in a way that is complimentary to the rearranged cooled surface and makes the whole thing harder.

All that rearrangement is subtle and at the atomic level. Wouldn't be able to tell from looking at it.

Sorry, went into nerd mode there!

As ever SF is a wonderful source of people with varied interests! Not many fashion forums degenerate into metallurgy conversations :-)
