Just finished the cape closure, ("alamaro" in italian Language) because I built a Tabard.
Solid brass machined, milled and brazed. I build also the chain with brass wire.
I chose engine turning as finishing, although the appearence was very nice, it seemed too new for a very old cape, so I decided to give a vintage look.
This closure can be used with heavy coat, apron or something that weight a lot. My cape is more or less 3kg finished, only one point lock.
