    Default Leather 'bushcraft' belt handmade by Redkite.

    This morning Tilly received her stunning handmade leather belt from forum member Redkite it truly is a quality piece of work featuring 5mm dark brown leather, copper rivets and a sturdy English brass buckle and keeper.

    I am sure you will agree the standard of finish is amazing the sort of piece of kit that will last for years.













    Looking forward to collecting mine now cheers Graeme a proper job!

    There's RK on about that brass thing again.........

    And, just FYI, that is a very attractive and fashionable accessory and NOT a "piece of kit"...

    if you like it but dont need it its an accessory
    if you need it its an essential bit of kit
    its a case of perception, is your car a an essential piece of kit when you put your boat on it?
    also a 'piece of kit, can be a general term for anything you like to have and use,
    for a writer a pen is an essential piece of kit.
    my belt is essential.

    Well, I suppose I can't really disagree....for example, I do have 14 belts, 8 purses (handbags ??), and 27 pairs of shoes....all absolutely essential, so, I guess I just have a lot of 'kit'.....

    Thanks for the kind comments, folks. And cheers Gav for putting up the pictures.

    Got quite a few to do now so I'd better get my finger out!

    Nice workmanship.

    Would be interested in some commisions ? I could send you some ideas

    Ive been getting most of my leather goods from Europe of late but the quality has a lot to be disired.

    Do you work in other materials ?

    Redkite handed me my belt on Friday and I haven't really had it off, wild camping with a pair of North Face out door trousers and my knife hanging off it and now back home with a pair of jeans.

    I went for natural 5mm leather with English brass buckle and free running keeper, finished with copper rivets and a traditional belt makers stitch in virgin white tiger thread.





    Cheers Graeme it's simple a stunning piece of work that should last a life time, thanks mate.

    If you would like one Redkite is taking commissions so drop him a pm and talk about your requirements as each belt is handmade to your own preferences and specs, the waiting list is around six weeks at the moment.

    Thanks for the kind words Gav and your encouragement but unfortunately, due to illness I will be unable to take on any more commissions. In fact, I have had to cancel those existing ones so huge apologies to those involved and big thanks for all your kind words. I may, when able, make the odd belt here and there and post them for sale on the forum. They would be unsized and just need holes punching and the end trimming. The prospective buyer would just need to give me their measurement then I could finish the belt quickly and post. Might be a while though before this happens, though.

    Sorry folks,
