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. The 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 AK47 is equipped with ergonomic American G-10 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 AK47 is also equipped with state of the art Tri-Ad lock. 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!
