The Cold Steel AK-47 series has proven to be exceptionally popular with Military personnel and Law Enforcement professionals, and with good reason! Available in two sizes, each AK-47 features a solid 6061 Aluminum pommel and vacuum heat-treated and sub-zero quenched blade for maximum toughness with a hollow ground edge that has to be felt to be believed. Each AK-47 blade is also DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coated for superior corrosion and abrasion resistance. Each knife has high-quality G10 handles that offer an incredibly secure grip even when wearing thick gloves or working in cold or wet conditions and is equipped with our Tri-Ad lock. The Tri-Ad is arguably the world’s strongest locking mechanism. With a rock-solid lock-up and extreme shock resistance - two features of particular concern to our modern Military, who require dependable tools for the worst possible situations! Finally, to assure fully ambidextrous and lightning fast deployment, each AK-47 features our patented thumb plate, allowing the knife to be drawn and simultaneously opened by snagging it on the edge of a pocket.
