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 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

  • Boker XL Kalashnikov Recurve Tanto Auto. This is a perfect size for my needs. I just wish I could get one in a different blade shape as well. But the recurve tanto is the only one available at this time. At any rate, the recurve tanto is well wor

    Awesome product. Snappy deployment for the size. Beautiful blade. I still can’t believe I got this kind of knife for the low low price of 40 bucks. This is about the 3rd of 4th knife I’ve bought from blade ops in the past 6 months.

  • Impressive considering it’s only 40$

    I’ve had this knife for a year and it’s held up very well as my edc. Lockup is rock solid just like new. My only complaint is the finish has started coming off the handle. Well worth it at twice the price. If you’re on the fence check out YouTube of this xl model. It’s a beauty. Big fan of the recurve blade shape. Boker makes a heck of a blade.
