The Black Edition Element started as a limited release with Canyon Red, but has rapidly become a staple in our product line, so we're combining the black plate with our best selling leather color -Mississippi Mud. The sleek black Cerakote® finish offers the same RFID protective qualities of the original Element, but with increased corrosion resistance. Our 5oz of chrome-tanned, top-grain leather is secured to the stainless steel skeleton with MIL-SPEC type II paracord. Always 100% USA-made to ensure top quality for your everyday carry. US Design and Patents Pending.
