We're excited to offer the new Mini version of the popular Boker Kalashnikov knife. Like the original Kalashnikov auto, the Mini has an aluminum handle with molded finger grips and an AUS-8 stainless steel blade. The Mini Kalashnikov design is ultra compact and comfortable for carry with the tip-up pocket clip. The action on this knife is exceptional and comparable to that of the Boker Magnum automatic series.

This knife has a bead blast finished drop point blade with a plain edge. The black aluminum handle has a bead blasted pocket clip and hardware.

Impressive for the price

I own a Pirhana and a couple of Benchmade auto's, as well as some classic Italian switchblades all which were considerably more expensive than this knife. I was looking for a smallish auto as a gift for a friend who has limited mobility in his arms. Given the price I was a bit hesitant when ordering (though online reviews via You Tube were quite positive) and upon receiving the knife I was impressed. It is light, slender (very important), just a great size to have at the office and the blade comes out super smooth with authority. In my opinion it wasn't all that sharp, just your basic grind without a finish though I've not attempted to sharpen it just yet. It would be nice to see a lock to prevent accidental opening while in my pocket. The push button blade release has some rough drag though I assume that will smooth out with use (and perhaps a bit of oil). Overall I am quite happy and am going back in to purchase another.

Pro's: Great value and price, light, perfect size for the office, no defects, good solid spring, excellent price. Great every day carry knife.

Con's: No blade lock, push button a bit rough, would like a sharper, more refined edge.

I'm giving it 5 stars because for the price it's a really nice little knife!.

I want to add - Great service and fast delivery from BladeHQ and this was my first purchase.
Best Auto for the money

I own a lot of Autos. My 2 favorite are Benchmade Mini Reflex & Protech Newport. 3rd place is the whole Boker Kalashnikov series (mini and regular). This is my favorite because it isn't too heavy or bulky for basketball shorts hut still plenty of knife. They are all awesome. Fast, solid deployment. Nice edge out of the box.
Great knife

This is a must have!! I got mine in and I'm %100 satisfied, razor sharp out of the box, sturdy, fires right open like it supposed to, no problems what so ever. Yes I highly recommend getting this knife, this is a smaller version feels nice in the hand and I'm happy to have this knife. I say get one before they sell out or you'll be stuck for months, great for the price and worth the money, no complaints here.
