My AK47 in Coyote Tan with CTS-XHP just arrived in an "obviously used" open box which says Coyote Tan on the label, but inside is an all Black AK47 in AUS8...... Ah, you can have this one back and send me the knife I purchased. The ONLY reason I made this purchase was due to the Coyote Tan and the CTS-XHP steel, and I recieved neither in a mislabeled used box. WTH Massdrop?

I measured this knife as compared with Cold Steel's stated dimensions and it's 3/4" shorter overall and the blade is 1/4" shorter. Someone took my knife out of the box and swapped in a smaller/cheaper version. I am extremely disappointed in Massdrop's quality controls. I was really looking forward to this delivery.
Is this actually going to ship in CTS-XHP? Cold Steel said they were swapping everything to S35VN.
Got my Full size AK today. Thanks Massdrop for the awesome deal! Keep up the good work!
My American Lawman costed me more than this and it doesn't even have an aluminum pommel. This is a fantastic deal for the full size AK-47. I can't wait to receive this bad boy in September !
This has been my EDC for years and I currently use it a ton for work. The fast deployment from jeans is great but aside from that you pretty much cannot flip it open; it must be a controlled thumb motion. Likewise, with the back side release and somewhat high pressure required, one-handed closing is risky. But what it lacks in open/close safety, it makes up for in active use. The lock is super stable and the the grip is firm and controlled for both heavy and detailed work. It's tougher than nails but isn't fussy to sharpen.
21.50 shipping :(
I'm Batman!
I got the old Cold Steel American Lawman (AUS 8) and the new One with it's better steel XHP. What I'm missing are the steel liners at the new models (also at AK47). Could the new Ones break, the grip only made of G10-plastics? Beg your pardon - english is not my language.

lots of high end knives ditch steel liners to save weight. G10 is laminated fiber glass, you will bend a most steel liners in half before it crackes
G10 is CRAZY strong. If you can break that stuff you're basically the hulk.
The coyote full size @$69 shipped is a great buy considering they are $99 on Amazon Prime, which is their lowest price thus far. At the new year, the CS AK-47 was $119 so if you can live with coyote, which I can, buy it!
The mid size black, which I actually would have preferred, is only $1 cheaper than Amazon prime. Which is unfortunate bc with Amazon you can get in 2 days and not the typical 4 weeks more or less. I jumped on the Coyote full size
Bummer that the standard AK-47 only comes in Coyote and not black. I would have been all over this.

I would have been all over it, too, had the color been different. As it was, I was on it just enough to go ahead and get one! Too good of a deal to pass up, especially after barely missing out on the Code 4 buy. I can't wait for it to arrive!
I have been considering the Code 4 ever since missing the drop here :( Now that I look into the AK-47, I wonder if it would be better, and am interested if anyone here has input.
I am looking for a tough EDC, and have seen the Code 4 and AK-47 both used for batoning on YouTube. Not that I intend to do that, but would be nice to know they are that tough. I know these might be on the large size for ECD knives - I'm not too worried about size. I have big hands, and pockets. Since I don't have money filling the pockets, I figure I will fill them with something else :)
Thank you!

I have both. The Code 4 is good for a pocket knife, the AK is either in a jacket pocket or backpack - that tight clip combined with the abrasive handle would eat through my pants in a week!

I've done batoning with both, but would definitely say that the AK feels like the stronger knife. Also, the AK's big, reinforced handle makes it better for heavy work.

Thank you so much, that is a great help!
TBH the price is not good. You can get the Mini AK47 from Amazon for $60 right now, including tax & shipping instead of waiting for 2 months here...
massdrop01
what about price for the large?
Of course, you may recoil in fear when you see the knife open...

Don't you mean flip open? ūüėÜ
