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 really like this little knife, it is one that I will actually carry. It seems to be well built, and the blade is snappy. Finding the release button, in the dark, will take some practice, but, what am I doing opening a sharp auto in the dark? In summary, the sub kalashnikov is fun, useful and a good buy.
This is my first auto. I can’t put it down. So snappy perfect for opening boxes.
Thought I'm not bound by California laws. Since I don't live there. I've owned this little knife a few weeks now. I need to touch up the blade to get it to shaving sharp. That's the only reason for a four star review. It's a nice EDC. The D2 blade holds an adge very well. The blade opening is like lightening fast. Some reviews state that this model breaks springs easily. So far I haven't come across this. But I'll come back in of that becomes a thing. I would but it again or recommend it to a friend.
Cool lil guy. Ca legal switchblade to adhere to ridiculous laws. Fit and finish is ok. Blade grind needed some tlc. Coating is already showing rust spotting. Keep it dry. The blade fires out like a rocket and is secure. Slight blade wobble but only slight. Comparable to subcom in many ways but with a beefier handle. 3 finger grip for med/large hands. Wish the d2 came in different options. Cool knife if you know how to sharpen. Keep it clean and dry. I want a full sized one
same spring as used in mini and pops that small D2 blade quickly- love the size, weight and a overall a perfect daily carry. I actually put my Benchmade Phaeton in storage and switched to this little monster.
