Western Belt Buckles, Historic Buckles, Jewelry

Western belt buckles custom cast by Chisholm’s Trail Leather- MADE IN THE USA

Chisholm’s Trail is now producing Western movie and historic vintage belt buckles, badges & jewelry. We decided to do this as a result of the majority of companies that are discontinuing items of the old west. In our quest to outsource to US small businesses only, we have located a highly skilled designer and a casting source for brass, white bronze, Sterling Silver and gold. Our castings are from virgin brass- not melted down artillery shells filled with impurities. We will continue to collect and reproduce new and unique buckles, badges & jewelry found in the American West. All of our items are heavy duty. No tinny buckles found here. If you have a unique buckle share it with us we’d like to make it !
Western belt buckles are our forte.
All nickel buckles are commercially plated and cost $5 more. Engraved buckles may come with a black background or without depending on the foundry casting. This black can and will come off in time. There is no difference in price.
NEW : Most of our buckles can now be made one at a time from solid sterling silver. Price based on silver cost of the day (In Stock)
Cost of commercial nickel plate has continued to increase. As a result we will have to raise the price of our nickel buckles by $5 each.

SPECIAL NOTE: At the bottom of the page see our new Indian Collection including American Indian chokers and ear rings.

Indian replicas not made by Native Americans as defined by 2.5 USC & 305 ET SEQ.

CJ-13 PALADIN STERLING SILVER CHESS KNIGHT

PALADIN

PALADIN

The series ran from 1957 to 1963. Boone chose the Chess Knight because of its ability to make so many moves. One original is in the National Cowboy Museum, another is in the Cody Museum. We are friends with the curator in both museums and have been able to source sizes and designs. In addition we have another friend who has an exact replica. Many other copies are very poor and do not look anything like the original or have any way of attaching to leather. Ours is hand crafted of Solid Sterling Silver and has the original style of leather attachment. These must be used with lined holsters or other applications. This is not a thin or tinny concho. It is 2 1/8″ x 1 1/8″. Supply is very limited and price is dependent on the current silver price that seems to raise daily. If you want one please order today.

Western belt buckles

our western buckles in Old West museums in Texas, Arizona, Montana, Wyoming, New Mexico and other Old West locations. Chisholms Trail Leather western buckles have been selected by Hollywood movie armorers for several western movies during the last decade, including 3:10 to Yuma (bad guys’ holsters, buckles, belts), The Legend Of Hell’s Gate, Cowboys & Aliens, an upcoming Val Kilmer western about Doc Holliday, and even Miley Cyrus’ belt buckles and holsters and belts for her most recent western world tour. If you strive for a premier product that is what you will get from Chisholms Trail Leather. We know of no other company that makes the quality, diversity and authentic western movie and vintage historic buckles that we do. We have researched the real thing, then Chisholms Trail Leather western buckles are what you are looking for, partner. Give us a call and make your order. We’re the real thing.

Chisholm’s Trail Leather is constantly searching museums and curio shops in the real Old West. Every year, we travel to locations such as Dodge City, El Paso, Abliene, Tucson, Tombstone and other towns steeped in the history of the Old West. We carefully examine the real articles, many over 100 years old. We are often required to wear white cloth gloves, to protect aging historic gun leather damage from elements or human hands. We measured, photographed and analyzed Geronimo’s original gear, for instance. That is one of the reasons that Hollywood armorers and producers have come to rely on the authenticity of our Cowboy gear. Not many people devote the kind of time and research into their work the way that Chisholm’s Trail does. Care. Precision. Craft. Artistry. Experience. That’s Chisholm’s Trail Leather.
Buckles are one of our fortes. Authentic western movie and historic vintage buckles. What you see in the movies may have come from us. You see, Hollywood producers ask their armorers to find the real thing. Everyone involved with cowboy movies wants it to live and breathe the reality of that bygone era. Our buckles are one of the keys to making that happen. Sunlight glints off the bronze, copper, silver and other metals used in the fabrication of the buckles and catches the eye. Buckles are as much decorative as they are functional, for holding up your britches. If you want real, you want Chisholm’s Trail Leather buckles.
We cast our buckles in the time-honored traditional methods used when those buckles of the Old West were cast. We used thick and heavy metal, solid and true. We don’t want anything substandard with our imprint on it. Only materials that we hope will last a lifetime. Unless Johnny Ringo shoots at it, that is. But even then, our gear is liable to surprise you.
