Ambidextrous Stainless Pocket Clip
In 1947, Mikhail Kalashnikov, the legendary Russian gun designer,
created the AK-47 assault rifle. Eventually adopted by the Red Army in
1949, it became famous as the "People's Rifle". Such renown was not
unwarranted, as it was utterly reliable, rugged, simple to operate and
maintain, economical, and effective at reasonable ranges. This weapon,
and all it represents became the inspiration for Cold Steel's heavy-duty
tactical knife, the AK-47 folder. Designed by Andrew Demko, the AK-47
possesses all of the attributes of its namesake, and perhaps a few more.
Built for hard and rugged use, the AK-47's handle is made with thick
aircraft grade aluminum scales that are bolted to steel liners, this
creates a robust grip that is remarkably tough, rigid, and incomparably
strong. The grip is also equipped with a unique pommel. Made of Grivory,
the pommel features two lanyard holes, and can serve as a "less than
lethal" percussion tool in a self-defense situation.
hollow ground blade has been honed by hand until it reaches levels of
sharpness only seen on a surgeon's scalpel. It's made from Japanese AUS
8A Stainless steel, then vacuum heat treated, and sub zero quenched to
make it as tough and rugged as humanly possible. To complement such an
exceptional blade, we have equipped the AK-47 with our Ultra Lock
locking mechanism. With Cold Steel's latest refinements and testing,
this lock has proven itself to be equal, perhaps even superior, to any
other lock on the market in terms of strength and shock resistance.
Finally, to assure easy access, and swift operation, the AK-47 comes
with an ambidextrous pocket clip and Cold Steels new patented thumb
plate. The thumb plate has a dual purpose, it allows the knife to be
drawn and quickly opened by snagging it on the edge of a pocket or it
can be used like a conventional thumb stud for easy one-handed opening.
