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.

This is a very capable knife. The blade shape and weight are perfect for an everyday carry working knife. My only issue is the spring. Kinda slow, in the cold it is very slow. Once it gets some use, maybe it speeds up a little? Blade Ops sells replacement springs, maybe that is an option. All things considered, very happy.
Product definitely met and even went above my expectations. Solid construction, smooth opening and great lock up.
Is it better than more premium offerings? Not likely but a sure contender. However, best value in its price point by far.
Knife was as expected I have a few of these with different blades this thing is amazing like the rest the blade is really big and the overall appearance of the knife is great couldn't be happier the action is not as fast as others but the blade is a lot bigger if you are thinking about this knife just buy it you won't be sorry
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.
