NEW AND EXCLUSIVE!
Carved with the highest attention to detail, USA Kilts is pleased to introduce a new massive kilt pin for the warrior in us all - Fenrir. In Norse legend, Fenrir (or Fenris) was the great primordial wolf. A force of chaos, he was an even match in battle to any of the Gods, even Odin, who would eventually fall to him in the battle of Ragnarok.
And yet, the power of Fenrir has become a favorite theme in Nordic art. To the Vikings, the wolf symbolized an indomitable will to survive and the refusal to submit to one’s foes. If this sounds like you, then this is your kilt pin.
The design, conceived by an American artist of Celtic & Norse heritage, combines the very best of ancient as well as contemporary art. Our UK-based craftsmen form high-quality pewter into swirling Celto-Norse knotwork. The head of Fenris is rendered in energetic modern style - you can almost hear his jaws snapping. Not for the meek -- this over-sized, rugged kilt pin measures a full 2" wide x 4" tall! It can do double duty as a brooch for a woman's shawl or sash!

- Fenrir Wolf kilt pin Bizkitz
Value Quality PriceThis kilt pin is a beautiful piece. I also purchased the matching belt buckle. The pin is heavy (the belt buckle is massive), but reasonably so. I had no problems with the length of the mounting pins / clasps with my kilt. The material of my kilt is quite heavy, and the pin was held nicely in place.
One of the pins was bent when I took it out of the packaging. (It comes in a nice velvet like drawstring bag.) I dropped it just before removing it from the bag, so it's possible the pin bent from that. I was a bit concerned about straightening the pin afterward, because many alloys will fracture after bending them once or twice. I got it close to perfectly straight before I was a bit afraid I might snap it off, but it's fine. I can use it although slightly bent by angling the first pin through the fabric, then the second pin goes in just fine. All that by way of saying I feel the product quality is fine.
USA Kilts has been very helpful and responsive with all of my orders! (Posted on 7/3/2020)
- Absolutely Beautiful Shiva
Price Value QualityI've been after a kilt pin that I not only like, but serves as a representation of what I believe. This pin was it! I receive compliments on it every time I go out, and questions about where I got it. Every day (Posted on 6/29/2020)
- good but not great Piper paul
Quality Price ValueI really liked the Artwork and the boldness of the pen. the quality is great. What I am not a fan is the pin mechanism. I was not expecting straight style pins with butterfly clasps. I am concerned with the weight of the jewel and that style of clasp that it will be prone to falling off. I think a traditional style pinning mechanism would be more suitable. (Posted on 4/20/2020)
- Awesome Kilt Pin!! Uncle Dave
Price Value QualityI bought this kilt pin to match my Fenrir belt buckle. Great quality for the price. Very unique and eye catching. It utilizes 2 pin stays rather than 1 safety type pin.
Thanks USA Kilts!! (Posted on 2/20/2020)

- Good concept, clunky implementation Brian
Price Value QualityThe design and price are great. However, it loses 2 stars for two glaring problems. First, the mounting pins are far too long. The length of them is better suited to wearing the pin on a belt, which is impractical. They are so long that when worn on a kilt that there is about 3/16"-1/4" excess length. The extra length causes the pin flap around and hang in a sloppy fashion. It is also dangerous in that it could more easily catch on something causing the kilt apron to tear. I had to use 8 thicknesses of paper towel to make a washer, as it were, to snug up the pin. Second, the clips for holding the pin are the frog/butterfly type. I think they are marginal in that they have sharp edges that can easily snag the kilt. They also do not inspire confidence as to reliability. I believe the top hat-style clips would be better.

- Nice design; clunky execution Brian
Value Quality PriceThis pin is a great piece of artwork and jewelry. The level of detail is very good. The thickness of the metal (polished pewter) is likewise very good. While being a large pin, it is not overly bulky or heavy. Substantial? Yes. Too much? Nope. That was the good.
Now, on to the other side of the coin, or in this case, the pin. The mounting pins are far too long. When the pin is worn on my Casual kilt, there is at least 3/16-1/4" of pin post showing on the front side of the apron. The pin is not snug by any means. It actually just kind of flaps around and looks really, really sloppy. It is so loose that I am afraid that it will tear the apron if it just brushes against anything. When I wore the pin I put 8 layers of paper towel on the pin to act as a spacer to hold the pin snug. That is the first star reduction. The second star reduction is resultant of the pin clutches. The frog/butterfly types do not inspire confidence. I believe that the type used on tie tacks that look like top hats would be a far better option.
Now, with all that being said, the question arises of "would I recommend this product to someone else?" The answer: "HECK YEAH!!!"
