The Boker Kalashnikov automatic knife is one of the most popular side open automatics on the market today considering the price point. The world was first introduced to the traditional size, then the mini, and finally, the BladeOps exclusive Kalashnikov XL. 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. The Kalashnikov XL features an aluminum handle scale with 4 integrated finger grooves for a comfortable ergonomic experience and the AUS-8 blade material offers better edge retention than you would expect. This particular model features a tan handle with standard black hardware, an over-sized push button for easy access, and a recurve tanto style blade in a black finish. Finally, the deep carry pocket clip is designed for tip up carry only and was slightly shortened to provide quicker access when you need it now.

*Please note that the seals on the box will arrive broken due to the knife being converted

    You really cannot beat the price and quality you get when buying these boker knives. It qlways worries me when I see a knife priced in the range that a majority of the boker knives come in because it usually means your going to get crap quality. Actions that dont work, blades that arent even sharp. Not with these I am overly happy with the fit and finish of this knife. The spring opens the blade quickly and the blade is crazy sharp. Would give it 10 stars if I could.

  • Love this knife

    I absolutely love this knife. I wish the all black wasn't always sold out or I'd buy a couple of those. The only complaint I have is that the finish on the blade wears quite easily. Personally I would like to see this blade shape in D2 steel other than the Aus 8, but you can't beat the value.

    Love the fact they made the XL in this design. The aggressive blade is bold and the look is fantastic. Great knife for a great price.
