Knifecenter is offering 40-percent price reduction on Cold Steel’s AK47 Field Knife.

Cold Steel came out with this fixed-blade version of its AK47 folding series earlier this year.

“When we decided to explore designs for a new multi-purpose fixed-blade field knife that would be suitable for military use, we kept coming back to the AK47,” Cold Steel officials maintain.

“Our AK47 series folding knives have set the standard for hard use tactical folders. These rugged, dependable folding knives have seen use all over the world and in several conflict zones, and have been in our line up in various iterations for almost a decade.”

The sturdy design features a full-width tang and a 5 1/5 inch CPM 3V high-carbon steel blade. The blade has a DLC (diamond-like coating) that gives it a “virtually scratch resistant surface.” Cold Steel officials maintain.

The handle is fashioned from G10 scales and features an over-sized striking pommel.

The AK47 Field Knife measures 10 3/8s inches long and comes with Cold Steel’s Secure-Ex sheath. It normally retails for $284.99, but KnifeCenter is selling it for $170.95.
