Introducing the 11th release in my Numbered Limited Edition series, a STUNNING "chocolate" glazed vegetable tanned Shonan leather from the Shonan tannery in Himeji, found in the Kansai region of Japan. This leather is born from a region that has been known for its leather tanneries since the Edo era! Shonan calls this color chocolate, but to me it looks like beautiful piece of dark mahogany wood, full of character and imperfections, the grain is entirely visible through the water based aniline dye

Weighing in at a very substantial 13-14 oz, this is a thick leather, roughly the thickness of the Japanese bridles that I carry, if not slightly thicker. Despite the thickness, this is a soft leather, which should be quite comfortable to wear right off the bat. Though difficult to photograph, the surface of the leather is beautifully glazed to the point that it appears almost wet, very lovely to hold and behold. The back side of the leather is unfinished.

Celebrating the funding of my black nickel Japanese made patented double prong quick release buckle and matching pigeon stamped keeper, I've decided to make this limited numbered release exclusively available with the new hardware finish. 

The hardware is hand stitched using my signature double row stitching scheme, exclusive to my numbered limited editions. On this particular belt I used a combination of brown and beige colored waxed ritza tiger thread. As with all of my belts, the edges are beveled and burnished smooth.

This belt release is limited to just 15 numbered pieces. As with previous limited releases, this belt is likely to sell out quickly and it will never be offered again.

As with all belts made with my patented Japanese made double prong hardware, this belt is guaranteed for life.

This belt is on pre-order and will be delivered roughly according to my current order queue, which can be found in my banner. However, since the hardware is still being created at my foundry in Japan, please allow some extra time if needed.

To order this belt, please measure one of your old belts using the diagram pictured above. The system that I use is the most accurate method of measurement, and involves measuring from the inside of the end of the buckle prong, to the hole that fits you best (this method accounts for any difference in length between your buckle and mine). You can add your measurement in the measurement section above, or you can shoot me a message thereafter.

Handmade in Denver by one person.
