Sterling Silver Yellowstone Buckle w/Silver 'Trout'
Yellowstone Mokume-gane "Trout" Buckle
w/Sterling Silver Trout

The lost-wax-cast Yellowstone "Trout" belt buckle is the first of the 2007 annual edition and it's named for our first National Park by the same name, which boasts over 2600 miles of unparalleled trout rivers and streams. This version of the buckle has a sheet of Mokume-gane behind the rainbow trout.

Mokume-gane (Japanese for "wood grained metals") is a type of Japanese married metal made from diffusion bonded laminates often used in decorating swords, in this case consisting of sterling silver and copper. It is usually worked from the back to produce valleys and ridges on the front, which are filed and sanded to reveal a unique design. A specially formulated chemical treatment leaves a rich patina, highlighting the character of the metal's design. There is risk and discovery in making each piece.

The Yellowstone is also available with a leather center.

"Trout" Buckle

This is a heavy silver trophy-style buckle with a swivel bail, allowing the buckle to lie flat. (See angled photo.) The scroll-work borders at the top and bottom have a swirling, flowing design, suggesting the edges of a riverbank. The horizontal band running across the center, makes it the River buckle. It is a dressy statement with the trout mounted like a trophy, - it's a keeper...

This belt buckle has a 1⅛" (28mm) wide opening, and acomodates a 1" (25mm) to 1⅛" belt strap. It is assembled from 2 pieces of silver and/or gold, and 1 piece of Mokume-gane. The main buckle body and the rainbow trout are cast in solid sterling silver (and 14K gold) from Neil's original hand engraved masters. It is hand finished and hand signed by the artisan.

The Yellowstone "Trout" trophy-style belt buckle is available in Solid Sterling Silver and Mokume-gane with a 14K Gold Trout, or with a Solid Sterling Silver Trout. Overall measurements are 1⅜" (35mm) high, and 2⅜" (60mm) long.

Note: The natural variations in the Mokume-gane are endless, so each piece will be different.
