    @Equus Leather Did they key fobs ever make it into regular production? I was thinking of ordering one for myself and a few as small gifts.

    They did. They were a stock item for a while, I took them off the website as we didn't have time to keep a decent supply made for stock. Absolutely happy to make them as bespoke items though, in any of our leathers from bridle and calf to the exotics. We've made a few nice alligator ones for eg that are lovely.

    Thank you. Can I get an approximate idea of the cost for a key fob in the Equus green chevre with a brass ring?

    Hi Jared

    Almost undoubtedly, though it’s not a leather we’ve really worked with. On the whole though it’s usd for gloves and the like, so thin and soft, not the best raw material for belts. What if it’s characteristics do you particularly like? There might be somthing better suited but similar?

    saw a peccary belt that was really well made by zilli... first peccary belt I have ever seen, and it appeared nicely done!

    here it is: (looked much better in person) https://sadko.com.ua/547749-remen

    Yup, looks good. Always interesting to see unusual leathers in use. This style of belt is very amenable to stuff like this because the strength can come from the lower layers of the belt

    Hi Guys,

    Quick snap of the steel buckles we've been working on. We have a couple in 35mm and a couple in 40mm. They're priced at £212.50 (+ VAT in Europe) as a finished regular belt in Sedgwick leather - we can do any of our other leathers though. Not on the website as yet so you guys get first opportunity to buy them.

    They're hand forged in steel from the same workshop as our bog oak buckles. The finish is a really interesting hammered finish with the forged texture still evident so they have a grey/black semi matt natural finish. The first buckle we've had like this since the Wakugi years and years ago

    Let me know if you want one!

    Hi All,

    We now have the forged steel buckles on the website here. Only 2 of the 35mm and 2 of the 40mm so get them while you can!
