Designed by celebrated custom knife maker Andrew Demko, the Cold Steel AK-47 series has proved exceptionally popular with Military personnel and Law Enforcement professionals.
Cold Steel has taken their great knife models and made them even better. They have upgraded the steel so that, not only do you get the amazing Cold Steel Knife designs, you now get premium steel blades that will take and hold an edge like an expensive knife while maintaining their low pricing. Their American CTS-XHP Alloy Steel blades are vacuum heat-treated and sub-zero quenched for maximum toughness, then hollow ground by hand until they reach levels of sharpness only seen on a surgeon’s scalpel. They are then DLC (Diamond Like) coated for corrosion and abrasion resistance while enhancing the knives already astounding cutting power by reducing friction.
The AK-47 is equipped with ergonomic American G10 handles that offer incredibly secure grip even when wearing thick gloves and working in cold or wet conditions.
These tough hard use knives also feature a unique solid 6061 Aluminum pommel that can focus strikes, serve as an impact tool and function as a “less than lethal” option in a last ditch self-defense situation.
The AK-47 is also equipped with our state of the art, record breaking Tri-Ad lock. Proven again and again to be superior to any other lock on the market today in terms of strength and shock resistance.
Finally, to assure fully ambidextrous and lightning fast access, each AK-47 comes with the patented thumb plate – allowing the knife to be drawn and simultaneously opened by snagging it on the edge of a pocket!
