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 an American CTS XHP Alloy Steel blade, vacuum heat-treated and sub-zero quenched for maximum toughness, and hollow ground for an edge that has to be felt to be believed. Each AK-47 blade is also DLC (Diamond Like) coated for superior corrosion and abrasion resistance.Each knife has high quality American G-10 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.
