As a squire, you are up before dawn training and serving your Master. You are expected to have your Master’s armour polished and ready at a moment’s notice. There isn’t a moment to yourself that isn’t being spent thinking about your work. Without your Master’s blessing, you’ll never become a Knight.
This particular morning you secure your Squire Belt over your breeches and shirt, noticing how the notch has to be let out a little more. You aren’t the scrawny squire you once were; it’s a good sign.
This bestselling Ready for Battle Squire Belt is made from three narrow chrome-tanned leather strips and provides a great anchor for weapons and equipment. The leather strips are braided and secured at either end with leather and a rounded iron buckle. This belt is highly adjustable. Just secure the iron buckle to any desired tightness through the braided leather.
The Ready for Battle Squire Belt is simple and easy to use, yet adds style and interest to a costume with its low-fantasy design. It can be made to fit a wide range of characters, cultures, or settings.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase lifetime. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase the frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
