Home of the original Bottle Opener Belt Buckle on Etsy! I make hand forged belt buckles for men and women. 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.

Belt Buckle FAQs:

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.

Why can't you make my order faster?

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. 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.
