All of our belt buckles are individually hand-forged       970 319 1697

Unfortunately, I am not taking orders at this time. Changes are afoot and I am needing to address semi-retirement. This will involve re-location and during the next  year (2020-2021) my workshop is closed.


If you can wait,  or need a custom order, please send me an email and I will put your name on my wait list. When I’m back in a place where I am producing work, I will contact you and see if you are still interested.


If you need something immediately, there are 2 stores in the Roaring Fork Valley which still carry my remaining inventory and they may have what you need. Find them HERE. In the future, I will be operating strictly mail-order.


Thank you all for your loyal support and patronage, it’s been a pleasure.
