I have these two belts "for sale". They are veg tanned and the brown has an unfinished inner. Both can be used as strops to hone blades. They are two inch wide solid brass Sam Browne buckles. They are hand sewn with heavy waxed nylon thread.

However there is no fixed price, but I would like the recipient to donate an amount they are comfortable with to Charity. I would request NHS or UNHCR at this time, but my charities will change.

The brown belt has holes from 38 - 46 inches (actual, not waist size) and the natural 39 - 47.

Thanks for looking.

Richard

Natural still here. This will patinate beautifully over the years.

I have double checked and the leather on both of these is Sedgwick Russet Butt.

Thanks Teedee for help with funds for charities helping people around the country and in refugee camps deal with Covid 19.

It means a great deal to me as my father came to the UK aged 3, rose to be a full Colenel in the RAMC before moving back to the NHS and recently came out of retirement to be lead Pharmacist at a Covid hospital near his home. His father was a refugee from Burma when the Japanese invaded.

People are still suffering and anything we can do to help makes a difference.

Thanks all.

Just to say, I purchased a belt from Richard in 2008, I've worn it pretty much every day, it's been around the world with me and I regularly use it as a strop. it's still going strong and aged beautifully. Fantastic craftsmanship.

Both belts gone. I will root around in the box of stock and try to do some more.

I will put some sales threads up and I have been moving 30% of sales during this time to charity. I am working from home and getting a few orders. Being in a very lucky position I want to give back.

Take care all.

That's great to hear, thank you. Hope it gets to go around the world with you again.

Both of these sent today. No delivery tomorrow so early next week.
