The KRAMER exotic skin belts are second to none! We offer black Sharkskin and shell cordovan horsehide. Each of these exotic overlays is bonded and stitched to a lining of genuine horsehide thus providing adequate lateral support for your weapon. Shell cordovan is world-renowned for its ability to burnish, and take on a high luster with age. Sharkskin, although quite dressy in appearance, is the all-time durable leather, able to take a considerable amount of abuse in salt water, thorns, and rocks. For dress or sport, this is the ultimate belt! Sharkskin belts for larger sizes may require two-piece construction. Call for details. Shell cordovan belts are constructed from three pieces of shell leather stitched to a single strap of horsehide. This method is used because single shells are not large enough for belts. Please note, all 1-1/4" belts come with square buckle and 1-1/2" & 1-3/4" belts come with "D" ring buckle. FOR CORRECT MEASUREMENT, MEASURE FROM THE END OF THE LEATHER (NOT INCLUDING THE BUCKLE) TO THE HOLE YOU WILL BE WEARING IT ON.
