Our Damasked or Damascus steel buckles are individually made for us in Japan by a master knife maker. Each one has the beautiful and unique patterns Damascus metal is so famous for and is made with tremendous attention to detail. We have each buckle we currently have listed here individually to allow you to chose the pattern and colouration you find most attractive.
After many years of searching for a craftsman able to make these buckles for us we have been exceptionally fortunate to find and work with a craftsman of such skill able to make a buckle with such attention to detail. The buckles are bead blasted, acid etched and then re-polished to highlight the patterns on the buckle, the raised areas being a bright white shine and the low areas a dark matt. Every buckle has a completely unique and random set of patterns - each buckle is as unique as a fingerprint.
To go alongside these lovely buckles we offer our range of Sedgwick Leathers. These leathers are consistent, beautiful and of world class quality and offer a foil to the character of the buckle which is really what this belt should be all about. However we're very happy to use our other leathers by special request should you want something different. Our French Lin Cable thread can provide no contrast or bright contrasting reds, blues and many other shades and continues the theme (and the Equus philosophy) of collecting and using the very best materials from around the world regardless of cost. In this case the leather is English, the buckle Japanese, the thread French and the belt is made in England like all our work
As you will imagine the supply of these buckles is inherently small. After such a long search we plan to keep these as permanent part of our range, but demand will always exceed supply and we'd advise you buy whilst you can, the website is set up not to allow purchase if we have run out so get one while you can!
