List of the Ka-50 (in Russian).
Very interesting, thanks! Are any of them still flight worthy?

Unlikely. Although one of the last Ka-50 No.27, which was produced in 2009, was seen in rather good condition at the Helicopter Museum of the 344th Army Aviation Centre of aircrews combat training and transition in Torzhok City at the end of June this year.
Spoiler:
Original in Russian

Вряд ли. Хотя один из последних Ка-50 №27, которые были произведены в 2009 году, в конце июня этого года видели в довольно приличном состоянии в Музее вертолётов 344-го центра боевого применения и переучивания лётного состава в г.Торжке.

That's kinda sad to hear. I hoped there might be one or two of them that still get airborne occasionally for whatever reason. Also this is a very short time of active service for this particular one
