It's getting pretty tired. I've been looking for a replacement for about a year, but haven't found one I like at a price I am willing to pay.
So I made one. Tandy leather has a Steampunk Belt Blank. I bought it on their recent 'gold' sale. I also got some neatsfoot oil and black dye to finish the belt.
I dyed it and distressed it so it looks good to me. All black, subtle tooling, yet some contrast so more than a casual glance will show how awesome the pattern really is.
Now to forge a belt buckle… I love making stuff!
You can see how badly stretched my old belt is. It’s necking down in a couple of spots and is just generally tired.
Looks great mike, how about this belt buckle … http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/942839367/html5-belt-buckle?ref=search
That is an awesome buckle. Matches my interests too.
