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.

I got the spear point for my birthday couple years back, from my mother in law, yeah shes cool. Here recently I been gettin into cleaver, so when I saw boker cleaver auto I had to have it
Substantial thick blade.. Very durable.. Flips just slightly less quickly than similar models due to thickness of blade, but quite fast enough.. Could chop down a small tree with it!
This is my 4th Boker. Great blade but spring a touch weak for the heft of the blade
I saw this go live and instantly bought it. When I got it, out of the box it is sharp. It feels nice in the hand. It has the Boker quality I trust. Definitely going to have fun carrying this.
I like the cleaver blade. Nice and sharp right out of the box. The action is smooth and lock up is decent. I have another version of this knife with a different blade shape and that one snaps out quicker (and came even sharper). Not sure if it's due to different blade weights or maybe a weaker spring. It still snaps out nicely. Not a really powerful spring. You can easily stop the action with a finger. I like the deep carry clips. I put a lanyard through the provided holes for quick extraction. For under $40 it can't be beat. Pick your favorite blade style and get one. You won't regret it.
Great knife and especially for the price. I bought this for ulitlity use around the house and outside on projects. Blade is sharp, thick, and sturdy. Hacks through anything I need without worry of stabbing or poking holes in things.
Uneven grinds, which I have come to expect from this series from Boker. Not horrible, just a little sloppy. In general, fit and finish are on par with the other 3 Kalashnikov's I have. The one difference is that this one does not fire quite as fast as the others. It could be the extra mass from this blade, but I don't think it is enough additional mass to slow it this much. All in all, still a bargain for $40.
I’ll start off by saying his is my first Boker Kalashnikov. Out of the box, it came sharp but not sharp enough to cut paper, after a few minutes on my Spyderco Sharpmaker and a leather strop,I had it razor sharp. This knife has a pretty big profile when folded, , doesn’t bother me, but to each thier own. Overall, I like the knife and blade profile, its convinced me that I need to try an XL blade ops exclusive Kalashnikov now.
Strong action and positive lock. I love the blade design but it does sit high when the knife is closed. You probably either love this knife or you don't.
The blade is robust and the knife is very sturdy. The handle has good grip and there is no flex under moderate pressure.
The length and size of the blade makes it seem to come out slower than it seems, especially if you compare it to the smaller Boker Kalashnakov knives. It isn't slower, but it seems to be.
A very nice knife, needs a little sharpening. Mine came with uneven sharpness along the length of the blade.
Easy to recommend this knife , especially at the sale price.
