The Cold Steel AK-47 has proven to be exceptionally popular with military personnel and law enforcement professionals, and with good reason! It 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 coated for superior corrosion and abrasion resistance. This knife has a high quality American G-10 handle with a Dark Earth colour for camouflage in muddy and arid terrain. It offers an incredibly secure grip even when wearing thick gloves or working in cold or wet conditions, and is equipped with our Tri-Ad lock. It has 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.
