If you yearn for things made "the way they used to be" then the Hanks Canyon Belt is the belt for you. This is great for suits or evenings out when you need a little more refined look.
The Hanks Canyon belt is handcrafted much the same way it would have been over 100 years ago. Nothing but the finest USA vegetable-tanned English bridle leather is used for the manufacturing of this belt.
Vegetable tanning contains no harsh chemicals like chromium tanned leather. Mimosa powder, which is derived from tree bark from Africa, gives the rich finish of the leather used on these belts. The devoted process takes 6 weeks from rawhide to finished leather ready to be cut and sewn into a Hanks Belt. The final step is a hand burnishing of every hide that is labor-intensive but results in a finish like no other.
Vegetable-tanned leather develops a patina that only gets better with age. The character develops with wear giving each belt its own individual characteristics.
To maintain the top quality features of this belt we top it off with premium hardware. We use our more refined all stainless steel roller buckle for easy buckling and unbuckling. The superior quality stainless steel buckle costs six times more than a standard plated steel buckle, but we wanted nothing but the best for the Canyon Belt. Our Chicago screws hold it all together so you can easily swap buckles yet never have to worry about snaps which can become weakened and unreliable with age.
Perfect for everyday wear or light CCW use when you need a dressy leather gun belt.
The Hanks Amish Canyon Belt is perfect for those who appreciate old-world craftsmanship.
