    Default Killer Cuf Links...John Zapolski's

    John Zapolski's cufflinks made from AK-47

    These limited edition cufflinks are produced in a limited edition of 20 only, and are made using the same mechanics used in Swiss watches. Made from 18 karat white and rose gold, these cufflinks also consists of metals extracted from AK-47 assault rifles. The designer intends to launch many other items made from the same metal. The reason behind picking these metals is that it is acquired from one of the most robust machine guns in the world. The designer, Roland Iten believes that the mechanical design will add a new dimension to designing fashionable accessories.

    Fonderie 47, founded by John Zapolski and Peter Thum, are now planning to create more stuff made from the metals of AK 47. On an occasion, Zapolski commented:

    “We’d like to directly contribute to the removal and destruction of 1 million of them over the next seven years,”

    The company claims sale of one pair of cufflinks is sufficient to support the purchase and demolition of 100 assault rifles in Africa. These limited edition cufflinks will be retailed at $32,630 and would be one of the most expensive creative pairs of cufflinks available in the world.

    Oh, I agree with you. But the only thing that is cool to me about them, is that they are made with ak47 metals.

    And AK's cost no where near 30k. Those are some tough links though.

    Very cool design that's some serious craftsmanship, but far from the most expensive pair of cufflinks, very far....
