Viking Compass Belt Buckle Made For Those Who Appreciate Viking Culture And Rune Symbols Made of Etched Metal - Great Gift - Iconic Image

Buckle Dimensions:

Each one of our belt buckles starts from a blank sheet of aluminum or steel. The buckles are then water jet cut to our exact specifications. Once we get the blanks back into our shop, the process of etching the designs into the metal takes place. We craft each buckle one at a time. 

The process is very satisfying and hard work. Creating an indelible mark on a piece of metal is a true triumph and makes us quite proud. In the etching process every single belt buckle comes out slightly different. Some areas are cut deeper than others, allowing each buckle to take on its own identity. Each buckle is a truly unique item.

After ordering, please allow up to 2 weeks to get custom belt buckles made. These take quite a bit of labor to make and we are here to keep the quality work always up to your satisfaction.

From Wikipedia for more information about the Viking Compass:

The Runic Compass Vegvísir is the Icelandic word literally means ‘guidepost’ or ‘direction sign’. In modern popular culture the Vegvísir is often called Runic Compass or See the Way. It is often associated with the Viking Age, which is not correct: this symbol is from the 17th century Icelandic grimoire called Galdrabók (‘magic book’). The origin of this type of witchcraft is difficult to ascertain: to some extent it derives from medieval mysticism and renaissance occultism, but also has a few connections with the ancient Germanic runic tradition.
