The all-black Kershaw R.A.M. (Restraint Articulated Mechanism) features a Sandvik 14C28N stainless-steel blade with Tungsten DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating, developed through a partnership between Sandvik and Kershaw. It is available with smooth-edged blade (Model 1910CKT) or partial serration (Model 1910CKTST). It provides excellent hardenability (56-58 Rockwell) and corrosion resistance. The non-reflective Tungsten-DLC coating offers additional protection and performance. The R.A.M. opens easily—with either hand and even in duty gloves—using the Flipper ambidextrous manual opening system. And it locks securely with the Hawk-Lock. Once the blade is open, the Hawk-Lock automatically locks into position. When ready to close the blade, pull the Hawk-Lock slider toward the knife butt and simply fold the blade closed. The Black R.A.M. weighs 3.8 oounces and includes a removable/reversible, 3-position pocketclip.
