Element Case Releases the Ronin FE for the iPhone 5

This is easily the most beautiful iPhone 5 case I’ve seen, and you know how I have a softness for wood. Element Case has just released their new limited edition Ronin, which uses a combination of aluminum and Zircote wood. They’ve based the design on the “clean lines of the “Katana,” or Samurai sword. The Ronin 5 sets new heights in iPhone case technology and style with never before seen details like proprietary micro machined volume/mute mechanism, and near impossible CNC machined details in exotic wood.”

If you’ve never heard of Zircote wood, you’re not alone; I hadn’t, either. Zircote is a rare and exotic wood from Belize that Element Case has ethically sourced and fully certified.

The lightweight aluminum components of the FE are hand polished, and then nickel plated for a smooth warm luster that won’t tarnish. We had one goal in mind when designing the Ronin for iPhone 5. to provide a case where the most important function of all is style.

I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
