The 'Professional' (1.75) - 911 Belt is handmade from a single piece of the finest quality Full-Grained 1-¾ inch wide, 5mm (+/-) thick, hot oil dipped, Bridle Butt leather. Moreover, to make this one of the toughest wearing ‘Professional’ belts on the market, we needed to add a really tough Solid Brass buckle, so we fitted it with a genuine, heavy-duty, ‘Head Collar Roller' buckle. Each the 'Professional' (1.75) - 911 Belt also comes complete with two hand stitched leather loops; the first loop is fixed at the buckle and the second loop is left free running to keep the loose end of the belt in place whilst it is being worn.
To make a belt that is worthy of being used by Bushcraft & Survival Enthusiasts, Police and Fire Brigade Personnel the 'Professional' (1.75) - 911 Belt is closely styled on the way harness makers have been constructing heavy duty traditional Harness-Straps for many hundreds if not thousands of years. Since a Harness-Strap is an integral part of just about all Carthorse Tack it needed to be incredibly strong, it needed to be built to withstand the stresses of a huge 17-hands high, Shire Horse pulling a fully loaded cart that could weigh several tonnes. So this was our starting point, we construct each 'Professional' (1.75) - 911 Belt so that you can be sure it will last for many years of reliable heavy working years and still look smart. We can honestly say that this top of the range heavy-duty work-wear belt is made for the most discerning outdoor professional. It is both comfortable and stylish, designed to be worn 7 days a week, 365 days a year and still look smart.
You might think that a belt made to these very high standards would be perhaps … over engineered and that would make it clumsy and hard to wear comfortably, if you did, or do, we would like to convince you otherwise:
Each of our Shark Designs - ‘Professional’ series belts is handmade to order, using the traditional ‘Double Handed Saddler’s Stitch’. The ‘Saddler’s Stitch’ is arguably the strongest and most reliable method of stitching two pieces of leather together forming a significantly stronger seam than anything that has been sewn on a sewing machine. With the ‘Saddler’s Stitch’, each line of the thread creates a single, continuously stitched seam that is completely independent from the other line of thread, effectively giving the item a double stitched seam. The special thread we use is called “Tiger thread”, which is unquestionably the strongest and most reliable hand sewing thread on the market today. When leather is sewn together using the “Double Handed Saddler's Stitch” and “Tiger Thread” you can be sure that, under normal operating conditions, it will never come apart at the seams.
Both the ‘Bushcraft’ – 800 series and the 'Professional’ - 900 series of Shark Designs belts are suitable for all outdoor professionals from Police, Ambulance, Fire Brigade and Security Guard personnel, to Survivalist and Bushcraft Enthusiasts, Hikers, Campers, and Scouts etc. We would, however, recommend that you choose one of the ‘Bushcraft’ – 801 belts, when a lighter work wear belt would be more suitable for work and casual needs.
Many of the customers who have purchased this exceptional quality belt are members of the emergency services, such as the Police, Ambulance, Fire Brigade and Security Forces. Many have purchased one of our ‘Professional’ series belts because of their superior strength, durability and smart (clean-cut) traditional look. These, functional belts are usually made in black or dark brown Butt leather so that they can be worn as part of a formal, or work-wear, professional uniform and are made longer than most other belts, so that they can be worn over outer jackets and other thicker outer garments.
The Shark Designs 'Professional' (1.75) - 911 Belt is a classic style belt that is durable and very tough, yet the inner surface of the belt is soft enough to be used as a knife strop, it can be used, in an emergency, to lash things together (although your trousers may fall down!). We feel, however, that you probably will not want to treat your belt with anything but loving deference, especially when you see the high quality of workmanship and care that goes into making each belt.
The Shark Designs 'Professional' (1.75) - 911 Belt is a hard wearing, high-quality, classic designed belt, which can be used as a casual wear accessory as well as a Heavy-Duty Work-Wear belt. It looks great with Jeans, Military and Combat Trousers or Cargo Pants.
We offer two main traditional colours to choose from with our exclusive range of belts - Brown and Black, however if you would like another custom colour please contact us, we will be happy to help you.
