One of the all time classic knives, the Boker Kalashnikov is the automatic knife I have carried every day for the last six months. I love mine. It handles the every day abuse I throw at it and keeps on ticking. After using mine for about four months, I finally had to sharpen the edge again. It wasn't too hard to sharpen and now, two months later, it still is in great condition. The action on the Kalashnikov auto knife is very fast. Our supplier is springing these with a really strong spring. The knife has been redesinged recently by Boker and now the action button is inset into a small well. This acts as the safety as it prevents accidental firing in your pocket. As part of the redesign, Boker removed the spine safety so as to stay in compliance with some trademark issues. I have used the newly redesigned automatic Kalashnikov knife and find it to actually be a little better than my old one. The button is in a better spot (being lower on the handle) and the action is just the same. The best thing about this knife, what sets it apart from so many auto knives, is the fact that it has great little design touches that most knives don't have. It has the Soviet star on the main pivot screw. It also comes in a case (box) that is shaped like a banana clip from the AK-47. All in all, this is one of my favorite, low cost, automatic knives on the market.
