"I hand-emboss the shape of a tarpon, using punches to stretch and bend the pewter from it's backside. Then I use acid to darken the flat field on the front. The pewter is soldered to brass, and has nickel attachments, and is a neat marriage of 3 recycled USA metals. Each buckle is made with hand tools, and hallmarked by me." Dr. Mark Goodwin

2.25 inches diameter buckle. 

This buckle is partnered with a full grain buffalo leather belt.

This belt is top quality buffalo hide leather. Full grain buffalo leather is also known as English saddle leather. It is the best quality leather you can buy. Buffalo is thicker than cow hide and has a more pronounced grain. With appropriate care, buffalo leather will last a lifetime, and will develop a rich patina which enhances the beauty of the leather.

Buffalo leather is softer and more flexible, and resists abrasion better than cow hide. Unlike cow hide, buffalo hides are not stretched during the tanning process. This full grain buffalo leather belt is stronger and more durable than cow leather. And because it is "pulled up" leather, it assimilates marks and scratches to create a unique patina.

Belt size is waist size in inches, plus 2.
