    Jerry Posted this. And having seen them in person the finish is very smooth almost like an anodizing. I'm curious to know how well it holds up. Its seems it could be very durable.

    Not all black coatings are created equal. Those could be powdercoated or something else instead of DLC.

    DLC = Diamond Like Coating

    my kahr pm9 DLC's finish is unscathed. I carry it almost everyday and have 800 or so rounds through it.

    no holster wear marks at all

    slide release/stay lever is the most worn looking dlc part on my kahr and its barely evident.

    i must say if i were to be so blessed to have a HOM in dlc it probably wouldn't get flipped so much. it would get lightly handled and cherished and passed down to one of my sons.

    I agree I dropped my ti black 42 a few times and hate how it looks with the black coming off so the durability isn't that great. I think that's how I found out it wasn't DLC coated. I think DLC has more of a protection then powder coating that Benchmade uses. You could probably chip it off very easily.
