    Anyone know of a good buckle to do a reverse able bracelet, would a flat one be the best

    A shackle would be the best option because you can use it either way.

    Either a shackle or a whistle buckle

    I've seen 3/8" Flat Buckles
    The 3/4" Fire-Starter Whistle buckle is flat
    I think many whistle buckles tend to be flat, but I have seen some contoured
    Adjustable U/D/Bow Shackles, the adjustable bar is not entirely flat (slight contour to them)
    Other options could be to use a velcro strap style buckle setup
    Some bigger buckles are flat and most state that.

    5/8" and 3/4" whistle buckles are usually flat, 1/2" are usually contoured.

    We have 3/8" flat, 1/2" flat and 5/8" flat whistle buckles. We also have shackles in 4mm and 5mm sizes but they have a curved adjuster so they really aren't reversible.

    If the bracelet is for a child or someone with a really small wrist, I would use the 3/8" flat buckle. If it's for an adult, go with the 1/2" flat buckle. If it's huge, get the 5/8" whistle buckle.

    Hope this helps.

    Also depends on the pattern you're using. A fishtail bracelet with a 2-strand core would look pretty silly with a 5/8" flat buckle on it.
