Tyger Forge - Artisans Crafted Belts
"I started making belt buckles when I bought a kilt. I needed a buckle to go along with all the other highland dress, and I could not find an artist crafted buckle. Everything was factory made. So, I bought some metal and taught myself basic jewelry making skills. Soon, I was selling kilt belt buckles around the world.
But hunting and fishing are my passion, so it was not long before I had to make myself a few wildlife buckles. Then others wanted them, just like what happened with the kilt buckles.
Every buckle tells a story. From "Having a Damsel for Dinner", to "Bug Out Bob", to "The Sundance Kid", I have designed each buckle with action so that it tells a story.
I personally make each belt buckle from six 100% recycled USA metals and gemstones. I use hand tools and traditional jeweler's methods to craft each buckle into art that you can wear 365 days, all year long.
For the ultimate in choice, convenience, and flexibility, my buckles and the fine USA solid leather belts are sold separately. Buckle. Belt. Or both."
