I have 6 Kalishnikovs and all of them are good snappy sharp knives. This is my first XL. Not as snappy but good enough. I like longer blades and the XL fits the bill. Nice EDC.
First purchase with Blade Ops, won't be my last. The knife if a nice lightweight pocket folder turned auto. I'm used to a much bigger piece but that's why I bought this. Only nit pick thing I might ding it on is the action is kinda slow, but again, that's being nit picky.
I have long been a fan of the standard size Kalashnikov auto. Wishing for a larger one for quite some time. Stumbled onto the Blade ops exclusive XL, and bought one emediantly. This budget auto is awesome. And the XL is no different. Took a day of breaking in the release button, but it fires as well as the standard size. I have sense ordered the recurved. Now I am waiting impatiently. Not a complaint. I just ordered it yesterday. Blade ops will be saved as a favorite in my phone.
I was a little worried that the plunger button would be too big and the knife would pop out on its own when clipped to my pocket, but once I received it, the knifes button is still recessed enough just like the 3.25 inch blade where that shouldn't happen. Knife actually flicks out faster than my 3.25 inch model! Very satisfied with my order and would recommend the company to anyone.
Bought this as an EDC. Well constructed, positive opening and lockup. The AUS-8 steel is easy to put a good working edge on. Some blade side play but not unacceptable amounts.
Didn't need this knife, just wanted one because their cool. Good weight, fits the hand nice. Price was right, arrived on time. Opens quick and is tight. Good buy, thanks.
surprised with the strong high quality blade for the price, the spring tension is perfect, opens up perfect, not too strong and not too weak,,,,just right.
I like the knife, good quality.
