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

    Cool knife

    A very well made knife, came pretty sharp out of the box. Well worth the $35 I spent on it and it was shipped the same day I bought it. Has a good solid action with a tight lockup and no blade play.

    Im pretty sure I'm going to get arrested if i get caught outside of my house with this. Maybe I can say “ ooooh, its for whittling... or its for opening boxes.... its for pruning my banzai tree”. I know why I have this, It is to have the sharpest, scariest looking knife i could possibly find... Its like a scalpel/gut hook. Awesome. The coating is really crappy but I don't care. Get one. Wish the handle was red.

    I’ve had this a few months and it is a very impressive knife. It feels like it’s worth 5x retail.
    It’s been dropped, kicked and fallen out of my car...not a scratch- no blade play - I’m buying another one ASAP

    Great knife overall

    This knife was my first foray into automatic knives. I figured for $40 I’ll take the risk, and why not have some wild, wicked blade grind to go with it. So far I love it. It came shaving sharp. The only issue I have is if you hold the button down when you close it, the blade can move past it’s normal resting position and impact the spacers in the handle. I got a nice little chip on the blade the first day I had it. Otherwise, it’s a cool, fun knife.
