The Boker Kalashnikov automatic knife is one of the most popular side open automatics on the market today considering the price point. This knife, as well as the rest of the Kalashnikov auto family, is referred to an auto-conversion knife which means the knife is produced as a folder knife and then converted via third party to offer the automatic function. The Kalashnikov features an aluminum handle scale with integrated finger grooves for a comfortable ergonomic experience and the AUS-8 blade material offers better edge retention than you would expect. This particular model features a black handle with standard hardware and a drop point blade in a bead blast finish. Finally, the deep carry pocket clip is designed for tip up carry only.

*Please note that the seals on the box will arrive broken due to the knife being converted

The Boker Kalashnikov line is a classic. This knife has a black aluminum handle with a very nice grip and shape to it. It has ridges along the length of the handle to separate your fingers, almost like a molded grip. The handle also is textured--all of this provides superior gripping power for your hand. The AUS8 stainless steel blade is sharp and stays that way. It is a medium length blade at 3.25". I carried one of these Kalashnikov knives for several months as my EDC and cannot say enough about how versatile and flexible this knife is. I used it for a wide variety of cutting purposes and was never disappointed. The Kalashnikov is an automatic conversion knife. This means the spring has been added to the knife after market. This voids the warranty but I bet that is never an issue. This well made auto knife is made of superior materials. It even comes in a great box shaped like a Kalashnikov ammo clip (banana clip). The details on the knife are great. The screws have a Soviet star on them. This knife is a must for EDC, or get two, one to carry and one for your collection.

    Very satisfied with knife. Seems fairly well built and with some use, quick to open and solid lock.

    Really like this knife. Pops open with authority. Wish the clip was easier to remove, stripped the damn screw due to the angle, so now I'm stuck. But that's okay, the clip provides a good reference for grabbing the frame in pocket as to where the open button is so the blade is deployed when clearing the pocket. Nice knife, especially at the price.
