I was looking for a good cleaver style knife and Böker did an amazing job with the cleaver kalishnokov.
Okay, so let's get the con out of the way first. The knife doesn't deploy as quickly as I would like, but other than that, this knife is awesome. It is already extremely sharp right out of the box, and fits well in my pocket. It's not too bulky, and I have already been able to use it for tasks around the home. I've started to use it as my EDC when I am out and about as well. Fits very well in the hand, and for the price, you really can't beat it. I especially like that it has a regular handle. I don't like frame locks, and that was what I was seeing with previous Cleaver Style folding knives. I'm also a little biased, because I love Boker Knives. I've never been disappointed by one.... Ever.
