The Viking belt with a cast bronze buckle is made of up to 3-4 mm thick smooth cowhide. The buckle is cast in the traditional manner using the so-called lost wax technology. The belt's width is circa 1.8 cm. The appearance of the buckle is modelled on an archaeological find from Fröjel, a town in Sweden. It dates back to the 11th - 12th century. The leather belt is decorated along its edges with an engraved groove.
Besides the colour shown in the picture the belt 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 blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
