I put the buckle on a prototype nato I had laying around. Of course the buckle tongue is to big for the nato buckle holes, but it would be cool to get a custom nato strap built for this buckle.

I'd buy that TN collaboration in a second.

Speaking of canvas, I had Drew make me one in grey canvas for my CD-2 to fit the Ennebi roller buckle from the Metta strap.

Looks awesome on the NATO ! So how does the tang operate function wise on the canvas ? Have you tried it on a watch and see how the strap sits on the wrist ?

I don't like binding in my holes you know :P

I am waiting on a watch with 24mm lugs so I can try it out. It should be here soon. This buckle is just a little slimmer than the Ennebei version if that helps.

I would love to see binding holes! :rock:

I bet heating up a small Phillips screwdriver and using it to enlarge the hole would work. Been meaning to try it so I can use a BP buckle.

You do that. Or use a hole punch for leather and then seal it with a lighter. I have used a uncoated nail before also, just heat it up with a propane torch. :thumbsup:

So today I am starting to deburr and finish cut buckles. Not a fun job and not a quick one either.
Doing 24mm and 22mm and should have the first buckles ready in approx a week or less

I post to wherever you may find yourself .
One thing on the post however, it will take a couple of weeks. Aus Post has only two options really and one is $3 (package is small and light) the next option is $21 !
Fedex is too costly for such a thing and so is other couriers.
I will have a ring around though before I post them on the site, but postage from Australia is an issue for everything
