Cold Steel

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 Teflon for corrosion resistance and to enhance cutting power and to improve edge retention by reducing friction.

To compliment such exceptional blades we have paired them with 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, and swift operation, the AK-47's come with an ambidextrous pocket clip and our 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.

Pros: Handle Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use
Cons: None
Want one with a stonewashed blade finish.
I have a couple CS products, but not his one. Let me know when you make one with satin or stonewashed finish. I don't want to buy any knife with the cheap black finish that flakes/rubs off. DLC would be good, but short of that, I'll wait for the satin of stonewashed. Cons: Blade finish

Pros: Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
Cons: Ease of Opening, None
The grip is very ergonomical. It's deep groove and G-10 handles makes me confident my grip won't slip. The pommel is solid. This is an excellent self-defense folder for everyday carry. There is no automatic assist on the blade, but there is a pocket-assist. The price is right. I'm a martial artist who's novice with the knife. This blade feels substantial in my hands, it's size, features, and sure-grip make this my most confident everyday carry.
