About

Modern Methods, Timeless Craftsmanship

Since 2008, Metalogical has been been providing Etsy with handcrafted buckles, belts, and other unique products. I combine traditional methods with cutting edge processes to bring you some of the finest metal products around. You will be impressed not only with the attention to detail of Metalogical products, but also the finish and durability.

I make all my buckles, belts, and metal art by hand. I don't have any employees, every piece is handmade by me. Each belt buckle is a unique work of art, crafted on my anvil with a hammer and fire. All of our buckles bear the hammer marks and imperfections of real forged steel.

The hard work doesn't end with forging and fabrication. The cleaning processes I use are the result of years of research and produce a polish that is second to none. The finishes I use are the toughest I have found in my 7 years in business. Most of my buckles are now available in marine grade stainless steel for the ultimate in style and corrosion resistance.

When I'm not hard at work in the metal shop, I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter kicking around Denver's art districts, restaurants, and brew pubs, and heading up to the mountains when we can. I'm also the lead singer in a psychobilly band. You can catch us playing shows around Denver.

Additional policies and FAQs
Belt Buckle FAQs:

How long will my custom order take?

I complete custom orders as quickly as possible, but please keep in mind that the buckles are handmade and quality takes time. Certain processes cannot be rushed. Custom made products take an average of one and a half to two weeks to produce, but can take 3-4 weeks in some cases (you will be notified if there is a problem that causes a delay). I do my best to accommodate rush orders, but I generally need at least a week for the stainless buckles and a week and a half for regular steel buckles or other steel products.

How large are the buckles?

Our standard buckles measure 2"X3", our XL buckles measure 2"X4", and our mini buckles measure 1.5"X2.5".

What is the difference between the stainless steel and regular buckles?

The regular mild steel buckles are coated with a high quality automotive clear coat. Over time, the clear coat will begin to wear off and a patina will develop. To prevent a patina from developing, the buckles can be coated with a clear metal wax like this one a few times a year:

Stainless steel buckles are made from marine grade stainless steel. They will not rust and don't require a protective clear coat. The backs of the buckles and TIG welded and are made from higher quality handcrafted parts. We highly recommend the stainless buckles if you are concerned about rust and want your buckle to keep it's "new" look.

Although we do our best to describe our products accurately, due to their handmade nature, products may vary slightly in appearance from the pictures in our listings.
