The replica of a historical leather belt with a buckle with the look of a well-preserved condition dates back to the period of high glory of Vikings' invasions. It is made of up to 4 mm thick oxhide. The buckle and the strap end are made according to excavations in the town of Hedeby.
The belt is decorated along its edges with an engraved groove. The buckle is sewn onto the belt's strap with flaxy thread (hand sewing). The strap end is attached to the belt with two rivets. The belt's width is 3 cm. The buckle's dimensions are 4.5 x 4.5 cm.
Besides the colour shown in the picture the historical leather belt with a buckle is available in other colours: see the choice of colour. You can also choose the belt's length. And if you state your waist measure in the order, holes will be precisely cut in the belt so that the belt fits you well.
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.
