    PM replied. We have around 20 people at the moment - please do PM me with your e-mail if you're interested! Btw, at this stage, the leather will likely be a natural/light tan of some sort. We are also talking of the possibility of working with Jeff Decker for custom buckles. P.S. A reminder to those that PMed me - please PM again with your e-mail so I can add you to the list.

    ^ Yeah, I remember, your Kenton Sorenson belt?

    It's from a US hardware wholesaler, so I reckon lots of American belts could potentially have it.

    Same here! I got the impression from the email that this guy knows as much about these belts as the craftsmen themselves. Can't wait to learn more about the final product!

    lol, i just sent you an e-mail about the details of the hardware used (other then the buckle). maybe you can respond in the forum so we all know for those that are interested. edit: and what is the consensus on the tip? have you gotten that far yet?
