This weapon, and all it represents became the inspiration for our heavy
duty tactical knives, the AK-47 folders. Designed by Andrew Demko, the
AK-47's possess all of the attributes of their namesake, and perhaps a

They're built for hard and rugged use. It is equipped with G-10 handle
that offer a vigorous grip that is remarkably tough, rigid and
incomparably strong. Also, each comes with a unique pommel made out of
6061 aluminum. The pommels feature a lanyard hole and can also serve as a
"less than lethal" percussion tool in a self-defense situation.
Additionally, the hollow ground blades are honed by hand until they
reach levels of sharpness only seen on a surgeon's scalpel. They're made
from Japanese AUS 8A Stainless steel, then vacuum heat-treated and sub
zero quenched for maximum toughness. The blades are coated with black
Teflon for corrosion resistance and to enhance cutting power and to
improve edge retention by reducing friction.
To compliment such exceptional blades Cold Steel has paired them with
the state of the art Tri-Ad lock. In our testing, the Tri-Ad has proved
to be superior to any other lock on the market today in terms of overall
strength and resistance to shock induced by blows on the spine
(eclipsing virtually all locks in short order) or the even more
devastating shock by over-strike that lands on the handle.
Finally, to assure easy access, and swift operation, the AK-47's come
with an ambidextrous pocket clip and the 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 or disc for easy one-handed opening.
