Matte Black Finish

Once milled, we apply an electrostatically charged powder, and bake the buckle to ensure durability. Once the coating has cured, the buckle design is remilled. This process creates an attractive, durable, finish that will stand up against every day wear and tear. We use the same type of coating, automotive manufactures use on their black car wheels.

303 & 304 Stainless Steels

A common question. 303 and 304 stainless steels are very closely related. However, 303 has a much higher sulfur content, which makes it much easier to machine. Although it's much tougher to machine, 304 is available in a wider variety of shapes and sizes. From a performance aspect, both materials are corrosion resistant, and extremely durable. Because of this, we use both types in our products.

Billet

A dense or thick piece of metal. Typically a billet is in the form of a solid bar or block of metal.

Embossed Leather

A leather hide that has been stamped using heat and high pressure to create a specific pattern, design, and texture.
