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 XL Kalashnikov. 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 XL Kalashnikov 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 black handle with standard hardware, an over-sized push button for easy access, and a drop point style blade in a bead blast 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

    Nice Kalishnikov

    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.

    just what I wanted

    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.

    Kalashnikov XL

    Posted by Lee Shelton on Mar 11th 2019

    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.

    Great knife

    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.

    Excellent for the price

    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.

    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.
