How are my belts different from other peoples?
My belts are hand made by me, from the choosing the leather, to cutting, staining, and installing the fittings. My belts are highly adjustable in size, since they over lap in the back and have a buckle on the secondary belt instead of using the belt loops in the front to adjust it. Its easy to punch extra holes in the secondary belt to make the belt as a whole smaller. You hide the secondary buckle in the back by the back buckle cover. (see photos) They are also firm but not stiff. So they are more comfortable than many other belts that use thicker and stiffer leather.
Rebel Legion Approvalable?
I have not yet submitted this belt to the Rebel Legion but I see no reason why it would not be. But I can't promise anything, no one really can. Though as they say a belt proportional to your person, if you are very tall or heavier set you will need a wider belt. Which I can make upon request (max width 4")
Main Belt: 2 1/4" Secondary Belt: 5/8" Standard Color Choices:
Dark Brown/Nickel Dark Brown/Brass
Medium Brown/Nickel Medium Brown/Brass
Light Brown/Nickel Light Brown/Nickel
Veg-Tanned Leather Professional Water Stain for Leather Professional Leather Finish Metal Bits (studs, buckles, etc)
That's some high quality looking leather. These look gorgeous.
Its the best leather I can get my hands on. And I handle it all in person before I buy. I wore my belt today in a troop at OMSI and LOVED IT. easy to put on stays where I put and and flexes just right when I move without stabbing me in the ribs like my old vinyl one did.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
