MATERIALS

We craft the industry's highest quality products from a foundation of the finest premium resources available.

304 Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel is a blend of corrosion resistant steels with key ingredients being Chromium and Nickel. Its high strength and hardening properties make it one of the most durable steel alloys available. 304 Stainless steel has excellent formability and is very high on the appearance scale. 304 Stainless steel is not very electrically or thermally conductive and is non-magnetic.

G10 Glass Composites

G10 glass composites are unclad materials comprised of different resin systems incorporating glass weave as a reinforcement. G10 laminate exhibits excellent electrical (non-conductive), mechanical (high strength) and chemical performance characteristics. Because of this, G10 laminates are widely uses in Aerospace, Automotive, Electronic, Industrial and Petroleum Industries.

Physical Vapor Deposition (PvD)

Physical vapor deposition (PVD) coatings are an extremely hard and inert vacuum coating process with no hazardous by-products. It uses a physical process to produce a vapor of material, which is then deposited on the object being coated. PVD offers a brilliant decorative finishes with excellent wear and corrosion resistance.

Laser Etching

Laser Etching is a process of permanently marking a material using a focused laser beam to alter its properties or appearance. The laser heats the material, causing a discoloration, which creates high contrast marks without disrupting the material. Four types of laser etching are used (annealing, carbon migration, foaming, and coloration) depending on the type of material and affect required.

Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU)

Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is a flexible polyurethane plastics with outstanding properties, including elasticity, transparency, resistance to oil, and abrasion. TPU has many applications including automotive instrument panels, caster wheels, power tools, sporting goods, medical devices, drive belts, footwear, inflatable rafts, and protective covers for mobile devices.

CNC Machining

Computer Numeric Control (CNC) is the automation of machine tools that are operated by precisely programmed commands encoded on a storage medium (computer command module, usually located on the device). Machining is a form of subrative manufacturing. A process processes in which a piece of raw material (metal, wood, plastic etc.) is cut into a desired final shape and size by a controlled material-removal process.

Black Walnut

Despite its name English Walnut, as well as Black Walnut are varieties of hardwood harvested mostly in California. Walnut is extremely durable, making it the wood of choice for fire arm manufacturer Smith and Wesson, as well as many other lesser known brands. Black walnut used to be a very common old-growth forest tree, but is now relatively scarce and highly coveted, and used mainly for high quality woodworking.

Top Grain Leather

Top-grain leather is the most common type of high-end leather product. Its natural outer surface has been sanded and coated for a more even finsh with better wear chatacteristics and stain resistance. The the thick "split" lower layer has been separtated away, making it thinner and more pliable. The split layer get's reprosessed for lower grades of leather product.

Design Excellence
I received my Rose Gold Katana case yesterday.  Order # 300000111.  Truly a design work of art. I have purchased previous iPhone top model cases from you. I have been an Aerospace Designer for the last 30 years, and am very familiar with the materials and processes you use. Only the best. In addition to a secure functional design, you have made the aesthetics beautiful. Cudos to your entire design, manufacturing, and packaging team. They all come together seamlessly, and it truly shows in the final product.

Great Looking Case
The rose gold with the jet black iPhone looks very nice together. The natural wood back is gorgeous. Only problem I've had is the leather case that comes with it is too tight. It is very difficult to get the phone out of the later carrying pouch.
