Cold Steel 58TLAK AK-47 (2010). 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 well deserved, as it was an utterly reliable weapon. It was rugged, simple to operate and maintain, economical, and effective at reasonable ranges. 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 few more.
They're built for hard and rugged use and are available in two sizes. Both sizes have many features in common. For instance, both are equipped with G-10 handles that offer a vigorous grip that is remarkably tough, rigid and incomparably strong. Also, each size 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 Tuff-Ex for corrosion resistance and to enhance cutting power and to improve edge retention by reducing friction.
The blades are supported by our 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, the AK-47®'s come with an ambidextrous pocket clip and our 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 or disc for easy, one-handed opening.
The Cold Steel AK-47 folding knife, designed by Andrew Demko, features a 3.5" clip point blade made of Japanese AUS 8A Sub Zero Quenched stainless steel, 4mm thick. The blade has a blood groove, black Teflon coating, AK-47 logo and patented thumb plate for ambidextrous one hand opening, as well as open on withdrawal. The textured G-10 handle measures 5.5" closed and has steel liners, an ambidextrous Ultra Lock, and a lanyard hole. A side to side reversible black metal pocket clip is mounted at the butt end. Overall length: 9". Weight: 5.5 ounces.
Thank you for the excellent customer service! My boyfriend loves his straight razor and likes your website! You may have a new regular customer, he has an extensive pocket knife collection. :)
