This is Vegetable tanned Hermann Oak harness leather handcut to 1 1/2 inch wide . It has a solid brass roller buckle that is attached with chicago screws so the buckle can be changed if desired. The edges were beveled and burnished and has a low shine to it. The hide was cut from the back and has some minor marks from when the cow was wearing it because it has not had the top layer sanded completely off so it does not have a uniform appearance. Please keep in mind it is a natural product and there is some color variation. It is only made in this color "Russet" but there is variation in the shade. I can send pictures to you of the leather I have in stock and see if you like it. It has been specially treated as harness leather at Hermann Oak. Made in USA with US hides. This is a thick belt made from 10-12 oz leather, it can be used casually but it is made for a holster or tools. It is one solid piece of leather, it has not been glued or sewed. It is as thick as 4 stacked quarters.

For leather to be full grain the surface is not sanded off, this leather has not had the surface sanded but it has been buffed to absorb more tallow and oils so you will see all the marks which makes all of them a little different. It will age beautifully and it is stronger because it has not had those fibers removed.

"With a feel and beautiful russet color that is reminiscent of the best harness leathers from the past, this leather gives your project old world appeal. Best in the industry – a customer favorite! Just the right amount of heft and a very nice “hand” to it Because of the amount of tallows stuffed in this leather, there will be more color variation than normal, Heavy and extra heavy harness leather is full thickness, not split, for the best strength and durability"

To order just hit the buy button and Etsy will give you a place to put a comment (if you don't see it just send me a conversation or email) and let me know either your waist size or a belt measurement so you would measure your belt from the end where the leather fold over the buckle to the hole you use most. I will make any size you need here in my shop in Maryland. I will put 5 holes in it unless you request 7 holes.
