BladeOps is excited to announce the newest exclusive model to the ever-growing arsenal of Boker Kalashnikov auto knives--the Sub Kalashnikov featuring a sub-2" cleaver-style blade. Quite possibly the perfect evolution of the most popular Boker automatic series ever, the Sub Kalashnikov boasts powerful push button action, a 1.95" blade, and a full-width handle for a rock-solid grip. This exclusive model features a black aluminum handle, all-black hardware, a cleaver style blade in a black finish and the extra-long deep carry pocket clip is statically designed for tip up carry only on the traditional side of the handle.

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 really like the blade on this little knife, overall the knife is small. But it opens with a thump, locks into place with authority. Big things do come in small packages, this is a great knife

    I call it “the nugget”. I’m quite happy with it, so far. A guy at work saw it and ordered one from you immediately. You’re welcome. If it’s anything like the other Boker autos that I have, I will be very happy with it for a long time.

  • Even better

    The standard drop-pointed blade Sub-K is a surprisingly handy little knife, and arguably the sturdiest auto of its size anywhere around. Its one drawback is that that solid build encourages pressing into a firm, strong cut, but the short blade combined with the short handle male it a little too easy to lose control, let the blade slip, and bury that sharp, drop-point into something you didn't want to stab.

    Consequently, this cleaver-style blade is the perfect variation. Like knives designed especially for rescue personnel to use for cutting someone out of a seat belt, harness, etc., without accidentally stabbing them, the blunted tip of this knife allows you to take full advantage of the knife's solid build and--for its size--surprisingly comfortable, controllable handle (thanks to those iconic Kalashnikov deep-finger choils) to safely apply almost as much force to a cut as is possible with a full-size knife; or to make quick cuts in confined and/or visually obstructed areas, which might even be impossible with a full-size knife.

    The big questions with any auto knife are, of course, how is the action and is there significant blade play? The answers are: outstanding, and almost none. It would be nice if the AUS 8 blade steel was CPM 20CV, but it's much nicer to buy this knife for <$40, which is made possible by the AUS 8. What I wouldn't want, even for the same price, would be a steel that was difficult to sharpen to a razor's edge, like D2. On a small blade like this, the compromise of edge-retention in exchange for ease of sharpening and price is absolutely the correct one.

    In short, this a short knife that makes short work of almost any cut and won't leaving you coming up short for the long haul .
