Inspired by the key belt buckle I posted earlier, I made this one from a metal slitting blade. Plasma cut the top and bottom off and welded the parts I made from 1/8” bar stock to the back. I liked it and wore it… until it made an impression on a few people and was nicknamed “the lacerator” for reasons unknown.
Rikers Island key belt buckle-
A relative of mine worked at this prison and made a few of these when they re-keyed the gates a long time ago. My dad had this when I was a kid. I found and “borrowed” it a couple years ago. One of the first things I made a year or so ago was a belt buckle, inspired by this one, but not as successful. I’ll post a pic of that one at some point. This is my favorite belt buckle, which I wear almost every day.
