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 Cold Steel's 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 American Carpenter CTS-XHP steel, then vacuum heat-treated and sub zero quenched for maximum toughness. The blades are black DLC finished for corrosion and abrasion resistance.

To compliment such exceptional blades we have paired them with our state of the art Tri-AdŽ lock. In our testing, the Tri-AdŽ 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 Cold Steel 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.

In the eye of the beholder.

I have the older version of this knife that doesn’t feature the tri-ad lock. Over all I like this knife but some people don’t, it’s one of those knifes you have to see to appreciate. The updated version of this knife is way better than the older one I own. If you like the way it looks you won’t be disappointed.
Don't Let the Blade Length Fool You

This is the biggest knife I've found that I can legally carry where I live. The blade may only be 3.5", but it's very wide and has a long handle- the laws here don't say anything about how long the handle can be! Really it gives you closer to a 5" reach. The rip-off wave opener works great for pocket opening, but the thumb disc is clumsy and set too low on the knife for opening with your thumb. Be warned that the black teflon on the metal parts scrapes off very easily. If you want an enormous knife in your pocket but have to deal with restrictions on blade length, this is a great choice.
