Best AK-47 Case Hardened Patterns

The AK-47 has hundreds of unique and different combinations, driving the prices up, down, and all over the place. Case Hardened patterns are among the most desirable, and for good reason. They are difficult to find, but easy to sell.

Here are some of the best AK-47 Case Hardened patterns.

Just remember, they won’t be cheap!

AK-47 Case Hardened – full blue magazine


The full blue magazine is one of the unique choices out of all the Case Hardened patterns. This is due to how clean and discreet it appears. Plus, no one has this skin. The only issue is that you can only clearly see the pattern when you inspect the rifle.

But who cares? The skin is awesome.

Also, it’s within most people’s price range for an excellent Case Hardened, coming in at around $250. A series of different patterns offer this aesthetic, but they all vary in price.

Some examples of patterns are 147, 716, 898, 761, and 579. The exact pattern used in the image is 761.

AK-47 Gold Gem – patterns 784 and 219


The AK-47 case hardened patterns 784 or 219 are examples of perfection in Case Hardened AKs. The reason is that they are better and more budget variants of the AK-47 Gold Arabesque.

Why have a solid piece of gold when you can add personality, taste, and rarity to your skin?

The AK-47 features a full gold steel plate with small patches of color to amplify the case-hardened aesthetic even more. There is no specific pricing for this particular AK-47 because there are so few of them, but prices could be more than $500+.

AK-47 Case Hardened – scar pattern 661

Ak 3

Where have you been for the last seven years if you haven’t heard of this pattern? This is pattern 661, also known by its famous alias “scar pattern.”

The reason why it’s called the scar pattern is because of the gold line noticed on the top. This gold line separates the blue, taking features like a human scar, hence the name. It seems ludicrous to say, but this is one of CSGO’s rarest skins in-game.

CSGO YouTuber “Anomaly” sold one he traded up years ago to a Saudi prince for $30,000!

So you’ll have to start saving your pennies to buy this skin. But, it’s worth it due to its high complexity and flex behind the skin. It is easily the most well-known case hardened skin within the CSGO community.
