Element Case’s Ronin Slashes the Science of Style for iPhone 5

Element Case, one of the premier manufacturer of premium, luxury mobile accessories, today launched what the company calls its most daring and advanced design yet especially for iPhone 5 – the Ronin FE (First Edition). In an accessories market flooded with inexpensive, lackluster plastic and rubber cases, Ronin evokes the classic, indulgent designs of luxury automobiles, hand crafted Swiss watches and fine jewelry of bygone era.

The Ronin FE blends CNC machined, aircraft-grade aluminum with ethically-sourced, renewable Ziricote wood offering a warm, lustrous finish and a soft, genuine leather backing for unrivaled style and protection unlike anything else in an iPhone case.

The Ronin features a wood and aluminum-blend frame completely encasing the iPhone 5’s perimeter with in-line volume, mute-switch and power button controls. Its slim-yet-stylish curves fully engulf iPhone 5 in a comfortable, smooth and luxurious package offering full protection and stand-out style no other aftermarket accessory can offer. Inspired by the clean lines of the “Katana,” or Samurai Sword, the Ronin bears its namesake for the legendary Japanese Samurai warriors with no allegiance to a lord or master — thus the Ronin 5 lives in a category all its own.

Ronin’s technical features and accessories include:
· CNC-machined, aluminum nickel-plated caps
· CNC-machined Ziricote wood rails
· Integrated CNC machined button mechanism
· Stainless steel hardware
· A premium leather-grain protective wallet
· Genuine leather protective “Back Plate”
· Screen protector
· Made in the USA

The Ronin’s hallmark beauty, its genuine Ziricote wood, ethically sourced and fully certified from Belize, is renowned for its lustrous finish and high-impact density. Blended with the metal and leather compliments – and the Ronin’s interchangeable back plates – the discerning Apple aficionado need look no further for the ultimate symbol of status, individuality and premium, hand-made craftsmanship.

“We had one goal in mind when designing the Ronin 5 – to provide a case where the most important function of all is style,” said Jeff Sasaki, Founder and Lead Designer of Element Case. “All of our creations to-date have elevated the concept of premium accessories, but Ronin takes this even higher to a strata of unrivaled prestige.”

More information on the Ronin can be found here. At launch the case will retail for $199.95, including a full accessories kit and all components.
