Close-Up of Belt Buckle
The "Banknote One" is engraved on a Sled buckle. This is a new channel buckle (also called a ratchet or tension buckle), a variation of Neil's Tabula Rasa Channel Belt Buckle. It has three sections that are all connected on the back (see back view of buckle below), but look like a narrow buckle and two keepers from the front. It functions exactly like the Tabula Rasa buckle, and has the same cinching mechanism. Neil developed it to utilize the clean look and versatility of the Tabula Rasa with a more traditional buckle and keepers appearance. It is an elegant solution to that end. The original was fabricated from silver sheet, and is as such, functional metal sculpture.
The "Banknote One" has clean and simple banknote style engraving. It's the first of the sled buckles Neil has engraved, so it was experimental. It turned out quite nice, and he plans to engrave more.
The Sled buckle with built in keepers is cast in solid sterling silver. It does not have sharp edges or corners and is extremely leather friendly. The burnished-edge strap fits through the buckle like a hand in a glove. A two-piece ratchet pinches the leather from the back to hold it in place, allowing for easy adjustments in any increment you want. (Neil often adjusts his out a bit when he sits in the car, it takes three seconds to do.) The strap requires no holes, allowing for a totally clean and minimalist look. It is 1¼" (32mm) wide, and looks terrific on a Black or Cordovan belt strap.
