This Gothic belt was modelled on a specimen from Western Flanders (Belgium) dating back to the 12th century. The traditional artisanal combination of the blacksmith's and belt-maker's craftsmanship gave this product a simple but very practical design. Up to 4 mm thick cowhide and an iron hand-hammered wrought buckle guarantees certain firmness and durability of the belt. A decorative groove is engraved along its edges. The buckle is manually sewn onto the belt's strap with flaxy bleached thread.
The belt's width is 2.5 cm. Besides the colour shown in the picture the Gothic belt with a wrought buckle in Celtic style is available in other colours: see the choice of colour. You can also choose the belt's length.
Please note: This product is made by hand from genuine leather. This is a purely natural material. Minor differences in the colour and surface texture are its natural characteristics. These small imperfections do not decrease the value of the product. Each piece is to some extent an original.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
