Handmade Solid Brass Belt Buckles

Classic timeless designs

David's belt buckles have been a standby for four decades, with old buckles from the 1970s and '80s still treasured and in use on many a belt. Their timelessness and durability are backed by our lifetime guarantee. We will repair or replace any of our buckles we have made over the years if they are damaged.

David still makes buckles in all these designs and will make them for you on request. We do not make or sell belts. You will need to find a local leatherworker or leather goods shop, or put the buckle on an existing belt. To order, you will need to know the width of the belt. We make buckles for belts from 1 inch up to 1¾ inches. The buckle's face will be wider than the belt itself. The lower price given above is for 1 inch and 1¼ inch belts, and the higher for 1½ and 1¾ inches. Contact us to order.

Collage buckles are all unique and composed individually. BCN buckles are Brass, Copper, and Nickel, with flowed or brazed on bronze rod accents. Many BCNs include chased, hammered, or stamped elements. The other designs are hand sawn by David. Some of the designs are available in Nickel as well for people who prefer buckles in a silver color; this adds to the price. BCN, 21st Century, and 80s buckles are brightly polished. All other designs are textured with a grinder which provides a more durable surface, hides scratches, and gives a distinctive, glinting effect.
