Cold Steel AK-47 – Badass Knife of the Week

Cold Steel AK-47

The AK-47 is one of the best-known assault rifles in the entire world. Since its invention by Mikhail Kalashnikov in 1947, the AK-47 has become the people’s rifle thanks to its affordability, simple operation, unmatched durability, and overall reverence. Cold Steel set out to create a knife as reliable and ubiquitous as the classic gun.

That’s where the latest Badass Knife of the Week comes into the picture.

The Cold Steel AK-47 is essentially the knife version of the iconic gun. This folder is rugged, easy to use, and beloved by everyone who wields it.

Designed by the esteemed Andrew Demko, the AK-47 features a 3.5-inch clip point blade with black diamond-like carbon coating, which increases resistance to wear and corrosion.

Cold Steel recently improved the steel to American CTS XHP Alloy Steel for a more dependable performance. This steel is vacuum heat-treated and sub-zero quenched for maximum toughness. After that, the hollow grind is sharpened by hand.

The AK-47 has G-10 handle scales for a strong grip in the wettest environments. A 6061 aluminum pommel acts as an impact tool and option in close-quarters emergencies.

Because reliability is one of the strong suits of the AK-47 rifle, this knife boasts Demko’s Tri-Ad locking mechanism. This state-of-the-art lock is tested in the most extreme situations and holds up every time.

It comes with a two-position tip-up pocket clip. You can also pick up the Mini AK-47 if you want something a little smaller.
