I have a few knives that are coated with Ti-N, as well as drill bits. What's the deal?

What properties doe this finish impart on metal, and why is it used on cutting tools?

Can it come in different colors?

It can come in different colors, but usually is a gold color.

The deal is that Ti-N helps keep an edge with its high rigidity and hardness. Plus, it being so thin allows it to work on a fine feature like a knife edge.

I had my RIA 1911 nitrided. Best thing Ive ever done. Looks great and will virtually never rust.Not to mention it makes the surface hard as diamond and they claim it makes the gun more accurate(on ar's anyway). Anyone that can afford it should.

Before I sold my 1911 I talked with these people - I'll be doing business with them in the future.

Bo and Shade do good work there.

If someone would do the cyanate process correctly, I'd trust them to do it. Personally, I still prefer the cracked ammonia gaseous process, but that's just me.

The Niboron process. As stated before, it is an electroless nickel with emulsified boron tossed in. For simple geometry parts, like the exterior of a slide, it should work OK.

MG Precision in Canton is doing TiN coatings on firearms and such now. Gold, Silver, Black, and Rose colors. They have technical names for those colors, but I dont feel like looking it up lol.

The stuff comes out awesome looking.

If you don't mind the "pimp" cannotations of these colors, TiN coating is indeed a very hard, durable, and proven coating. Depending on the shine on the base metal it is applied to, it can be mirror to brushed look.

If you want a GOLD gun,this is the way to go.
