    It might be the angle the photo was taken but it looks like the keeper could be a little closer to the buckle. Anyway, it is a beautiful belt.

    Nice indeed and I rather like the brass buckle and keeper. Buckles are tho often a matter of personal choice anyways - sometimes a parkerized type color is nice too..

    Good lookin' work Bruce! I'm not a big fan of tooling but you've pulled it off well. I actually prefer Chicago screws and brass buckles.

    Thumbs up

    Super Nice Belt. Mighty Fine Obvious High Quality.
    And Hermann Oak ~ Great tooling leather also.

    Sorry that I had to scale your photo down as it was really throwing off your thread page width.

    I thought that also, I have a couple pair of pants that have the belt loops to close to the zipper (bad design in my opinion). I have trouble getting my Rafter S belts cinched up.

    Very nice. It looks solid as a rock. Don't need another gun belt at the moment but your rig needs to be on "the list." Never seen a metal keeper except the dual ones on ranger belts.

    Thanks QKShooter for fixing my post! One of these days I might figure out how to post a photo.

    Someone mentioned the brass keeper on this one looked to be too far from the buckle. In the picture, it is. The keeper actually has 1 to 1-1/2 inches of "wiggle" room between the two screws. One of the benefits of this is with a heavy belt that's both doubled and stitched, you don't want to make radical bends/flexes. It's real hard on the liner and stitching. When you're feeding it through the keeper, you can slide the keeper back and forth just a little as needed without bending the heck out of the belt. That little bit of movement's also handy when belt loops are spaced differently--say between Dockers and Wranglers, etc.

    When I put on a heavy belt, and this is just my preference, I run the end through the buckle, and then through the keeper before I snug it up and buckle it. If you buckle it and then feed it through the keeper you have to bend the belt end pretty sharply.

    Did all that make any sense at all?

    OK, I'm wearing the belt and when I got it today from the Mailman I thought it was aces!

    This is one good belt. Now I just have to wait for a holster. I can't wait to see what I'm going to end up with, it's a prototype. If the quality of the belt is any indication, the holster will be fantastic.

    OK, I'm off now to go walk around the house and show the wife the belt.

    I appreciate the compliment, but the visual of this part scares me a little. Okay...more than a little.
