So what is Cerakote? Well, chances are if you are on this page you already know what it is as well as it’s benefits. Please check out a few of the videos below for a detailed comparison between Cerakote, Gunkote, Durakote, etc. ” Cerakote is a ceramic based finish that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers and wood. The unique formulation used for Cerakote ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness. Each of these properties is rigorously tested to guarantee that Cerakote products remain at the foreforont of the ceramic coatings market. Cerakote ceramic coatings utilize state-of-the-art technology to out-perform any competitive coating in both laboratory settings and real world applications.” (NIC Industries)

We have painstakingly researched the proper setup and procedure to ensure the absolute BEST Cerakote application to provide the longest lasting, most durable finish to your knife.

We only offer Cerakoting Services for knives at this time. All Cerakoting is done w/ the H series Cerakote unless otherwise discussed, as that is one of the most durable finish Cerakote makes.

Keep in mind sharpening will need to be done after this process as the application will dull the edge somewhat. Please note that this is also an excellent time to have your blade reground so it cuts well again, or to have any other blade/custom work done prior to the coating.

  1. Sent in a beat up Kabar to Josh to refinish in Graphite Black and let me tell you he did a fabulous job! My Kabar looks like brand new and is sharper than ever. I will be sending more stuff his way in the future.

  2. The Remington 700 .308 in the pics above is mine. I am extremely pleased with the outcome. I could not ask for a faster turn around time and at such a great price.

    • No I’m sorry we don’t do that… you would probably have to have that hydro dipped. But we do do several other neat patterns!

  3. Question, say I have a blade that has DLC coating and have no means of stripping it, but I want the blade cerakoted, are you able to strip the blade for me, Or would I have to have it stripped prior?

    • Yes I would strip it… I have to sandblast as a part of the Cerakoting process so that would not be a problem. Thanks!

    • I’ve got a broad range of colors in stock, shoot me an email with what you are interested in and we can work out the details. Thanks!
