Silver Bits

Our beautiful and well crafted silver bits are custom hand made, hand engraved. You can order as pictured or you can design per the options that are available in the drop menus. Since we specialize in custom manufacturing, we can create, build to replicate your design or customize the item to your satisfaction. Choose the style of cheek piece, the mouthpiece (MP), MP width and angle that suits you as a horseman. You can also make combinations -- for example: Cheek piece of
B-1580 with the concho of B-1547 for a beautiful bit.

If you don't see the bit or options you are looking for or have any questions, please call us at 209 492-0114 or e-mail us at sales@JTSilversmiths.com.

The bits are available with cheeks made of Stainless Steel overlaid with Sterling Silver (also referred to as White or Sterling over Stainless); or BLUED, BLACK, BROWN or PATINA iron inlaid with Fine Silver (Sterling inlaid or Blued ...Steel) The iron will oxidize eventually creating an attractive contrast to the silver. Moisture and humidity will expedite the oxidation. So keep dry to retard the oxidation.

All mouthpieces are hand forged iron "sweetened" with copper inlay. The standard size is 5", Arabian size is 4 3/4".

Selection -- We have two hundred six different bits to choose from and have grouped them by description to facilitate and expedite your search. Click on the Bit sub menus to find the one you are looking for or send us your sketch with specifications of how you want it made -- we'll gladly give you price quote and delivery time.

Our bits are available with 56 different mouthpieces MP-01 thru MP-56. Mouthpieces MP-13, MP-14, MP-17, MP-29 & MP-30 add an additional $25 each.
