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 black handle with standard black hardware, an over-sized push button for easy access, and a drop point 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

  • Hard to open

    Knife came in only 3 days with only one business day in between so that's a good thing. But I noticed right out of the box that it just wouldn't open no matter how hard I pushed the button. I had to do it over and over to finally get it to open. Finally after about an hour of working it it generally opens every time but once in awhile it still hangs up. It opens no faster than a flipper knife of the same size probably because of the length and weight of the blade. But I expected a little more. I guess I could loosen the screw just a little but then I'm going to have more blade play than it already does which is just a little just to get it to open fast. I'd caution anyone that gets one of these to know that anything over the original full size is just not going to open as fast as you expect. And it may even have problems hanging up right out of the box like this one. Glad I only paid $35 for it so that whether it works 100% or not I'm not out of much money

    These Boker knives - the automatiks - are some of the best I've been able to find for the price. I purchased my first one back in 1999 and still use it today. A great buy; I will continue to purchase them as gifts for friends and family

    bought the knife for dependability and it seems to have it.

    Great knife, fires just as fast as the regular size. Smaller pocket clip is nice, love it.
