DLC vs. Cerakote

The Inked Nautilus can be selected with DLC or H-Series Cerakote blade finish. DLC, or Diamond-Like Carbon, is an extremely hard coating used to reduce friction, wear, fretting, galling, and corrosion. Not only is it tough, but it's also incredibly thin and comes in at under 2 microns in thickness. 

Cerakote is hard ceramic coating that provides excellent abrasion, corrosion, and chemical resistance which significantly improves strength and durability. 

Both options are a near identical matte black finish.
