D3 Protections flat saps are all made of the highest quality American made leather tanned by Herman Oak and are built for many years of loyal service. Flat saps consist of a flat spring with a lead ingot cast to it, This is known as the "frame". The frame is then covered with multiple layers of thick leather and sewn through all the layers.
