In 1947, Mikhail Kalashnikov completed development of a rifle designed to arm millions of Soviet soldiers. It is now known as the AK-47 and remains in active use to this day, being the most manufactured rifle in history. It is so loved because it gets the job done, is very economical, and keeps ticking, no matter what you throw at it. The Boker Kalashnikov knife is inspired by the iconic weapon, with a simple design, no frills, and maximum functionality. The Kalashnikov is made of high-performance, high-value materials. It has a strong lock, dependable action, and a handle that just wants to go to work. The Kalashnikov truly is a knife that makes its namesake proud!

Boker Kalashnikov Knives come in many sizes, a variety of blade shapes, and tons of colors! These knives also come in AUS-8 steel for a price you can't beat!

Looking to add some flare to your Kalashnikov? Check out these sleek Flytanium pocket clips! These pocket clips only fit the regular models not the Mini or the XXL.

*Automatic conversion knives are retrofitted by a third party to accept a coil spring. The factory warranty on these knives is void, but we do warranty the conversion/spring of these knives for one (1) year from date of purchase.

Customer Reviews

A new years miracle!
Anthony S. on Dec 25, 2018

I have the Damascus version but a little after new years i got an email saying this knife was back in stock! bought it right away! I love the color scheme of this knife the black and red is just great! Got this in the mail today and no problems at all! opens fast and secure, looks great. For my collection im buying a 3rd version of this knife and maybe a 4th! I would like a satin blade and bead blast. This has been my first real auto and have no problems and the ergos are amazing fits well in the hand. I will be carrying this one tomorrow for work the first time and see how it does in the real world I have high hopes. Time to put this to the test!

Super cool
James S. on Dec 25, 2018

This knife arrived on Dec. 24th and boy is it super cool. Centered blade, great action, pretty sharp and did I mention it's super cool looking? Feels nice in the hand and for what you get the price is fine. Not crazy about the steel but did I mention it is super cool lookin?. Ok I did. Thanks BHQ.

Boker auto
James S. on Jan 12, 2020

Bought 3. Gave my daughter and her husband one each. We love them. Powerful spring, sharp blade. Just cool to own them.

Great auto action
Michael L. on Aug 27, 2020

Classic knife. It's got a powerful spring that always deploys the blade with a solid "whack" that is deeply satisfying. Great ergonomics, fits my hand well, and locks up tight. I love the Black Widow color scheme, although that blood red pocket clip may be a bit too flashy for some.

Kalashnikov Knives
Travis R. on Sep 7, 2019

I really like these Kalashnikov knives. The action is smooth and fast. The blades are sharp and there are several designs to choose from. They have good finishes and colors. And the price is right.

Can't Go Wrong...Great Action...
Eric S. on Nov 15, 2019

It's not a Microtech but you also get your money's worth with this Boker….a great first auto for my Son...

Mark K. on Feb 27, 2020

Snappy, smooth, great looking. Can't put it away.

Sweet knife!
Dephen C. on Mar 15, 2019

When I saw Blade HQ advertise this knife on their Instagram I knew I had to get it right away. The red and black color scheme is executed well. When I received the knife I was very pleased. It has a very snappy action and something about the blade shape just does it for me.

Awesome knife!
Tom N. on Jul 7, 2019

Great action , great lockup ,great centering , great colors on this black widow knife , just buy it you cant not like this awesome knife !!!

These are great!
Matt W. on Jan 11, 2019

This is my first Boker knife and I couldn’t be happier. It feels incredibly good in the hand. The blade deploys with an authoritative snap that’s very satisfying. It was nice and sharp out of the box. And who can’t appreciate a box in the shape of an AK mag? Haha. As I’ve read in other reviews, the seals were broken on my box as well but im assuming that was done by the fine folks at BladeHQ to insure the product was in good working order. If that’s the case than i can certainly appreciate that. The only bad thing about this knife is it’s addictive nature as I’m currently awaiting the arrival of my 3rd along with extra springs just in case.

Sweet steel
Donato v. on Nov 28, 2019

Smooth, swift, stealth

MIKE O. on Dec 18, 2018

i prefer its original name "RED ROCKET"

Best Auto for the money
Anutai A. on Sep 10, 2019

These Kalashnikov can be addicting! You can't just have one. It's a great edc. Very snappy action too! I love these auto!

Can't beat it
Ryan K. on Feb 12, 2021

Can't go wrong, especially for the price!! Strong spring, blade deploys without issue. The button was gritty. Took knife apart and there were tooling marks on the surface that contacts the blade. Chucked button into power drill and used 1000 grit to wet sand, and followed up with polish. Very slight warp in blade. Still gets 5 stars. It is a 50 dollar knife. If it was a 200 dollar knife, it would be different.

Best Budget Auto!
Phil M. on Feb 12, 2021

Great knife, for the money, and in general. I love the clip, and the snappy action. After some practice, I was able to close one-handed quite easily. It did come quite dull, but I was planning on re-profiling it anyway, so no problem to me. Excellent knife! Would be a great gift to anyone.

Affordable, High-Quality Auto
Kevin F. on Feb 20, 2020

There's not much to say: the Boker Kalashnikov is both affordable and high-quality for an automatic knife. The red and black color scheme looks amazing and that snap from the fully-automatic action is satisfying every time. The blade comes rather sharp out of the box, and the length of both the blade and handle will practically fit any hand. Ergonomically, it sits well in my hand and I would buy again.

CODY O. on May 11, 2020

Tried and true, my love for Böker lives on with this beautiful BHQ EXCLUSIVE design. 11/10 great knife would recommend to ANYONE.

Nils H. on Sep 5, 2020

Very attractive form and fit. Button is discrete and safe, but pushes open smoothly without drag. Spring is powerful enough to slam the blade open. No sluggish pokey dime-store novelty knife. Does not disappoint!

Snappy fun
Scott W. on Sep 26, 2019

Works great. Solid auto. Worth every penny. Great for the price. Feels great in the hand.

Great knife
Robert F. on Jun 26, 2019

Very nice knife the red and black look great the action is fast strong and positive the engraving is well done also I am very pleased with this knife

First Auto
Robert R. on Jul 25, 2019

This is a great knife. Sharp, awesome looking, and deploys quickly and smoothly. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for an automatic

very smooth
Jeffrey F. on Jan 22, 2020

very smooth and fast opening and a very sharp blade

Beautiful Knife
Carlo M. on Oct 31, 2019

Color scheme is really striking. Knife is a standout.

Mechanism packs a punch
AARON T. on Aug 17, 2020

Initially out of box, and every once in a while after hours in my pocket knife will not deploy. Simply fix by flicking wrist while opening, or wiggling the blade before engaging the button. Nice and sharp and easily sharpened. Kickback you can feel. Not too forceful but pleasantly strong. Might get a mini version of the Kalashnikov Auto

Cool looking - action could be better
Misti C. on Jan 24, 2020

I wanted to adore this knife - but the action is really just okay. The button deployment seems to stick on the first go, and needs more than fine tuning out of the box. It has a great look with the black and red, but isn't something I'd rely on to have my back when I needed it. While it will keep a spot in my box, rarely will it find a home in my pocket.

Seals broken
William C. on Jan 9, 2019

Knife arrived today and both seals were broken on the box. At first the knife wouldn't open, after it warmed up it was fine. Why would they send open boxes, first thought it was a return ? Not good business.

Blade HQ response:
Thanks for the review. These knives are all converted to be automatic knives, meaning once we get them in, we have to open them to add the spring. We wish we could keep the seal, but there is no way around this.
Very Nice Blade
John M. on Nov 27, 2021

My second Boker Red Slasher. For the price, you can't go wrong with this offering. Love the Snappy Action and Blood Red Blade & Trim. Sharp, Fast and Reliable. This one deserves to be carried daily. Best friend or worst enemy. A+++ Well Done Again Blade HQ!

Great looking knife!
Tom S. on May 29, 2019

I bought this more for the unique look than for use. The black and red is an attractive look. It's chunky and strong just like a Kalashnikov AK47 or AK74. The blade is etched with Kalashnikov 74. It definitely snaps open with authority, a trait Kalashnikov's are know for. This is a good value for the price.

A "Beast"
Craig T. on May 31, 2019

This is a beast of a knife with a great look ... Very quick release with an audible "clank" ... And you better have a good grip on it ... Love it!

My favorite Color Combination
Bobby J. on May 31, 2019

Good looking knife. I collect unique knives... This one meets the criteria. It looks impressive and works the same. A great addition to my collection.

All things considered, wonderful!
Merlin K. on Aug 24, 2020

All three of my Boker Automatic knives were received with the factory box seal already cut. Why? Other knives I have purchased from Blade HQ have also been opened. This particular Boker does not seem to be as sharp as the others. But the mechanism works and I'll use my stone. Didn't get the promised HQ button either. Oh well.

Great looking but some things wrong
Patrick j. on Dec 28, 2018

I received this knife as a gift and I immediately noticed something was off. When I push the button it feels scratchy and rough, also when it doesn't open all the way. It opens maybe a centimeter and stops, I have to push very hard to get the blade to open. I like the design and the style of the blade but the action is just frustrating.

Blade HQ response:
Thanks for the response Patrick. Because this knife does not have a safety, the button was designed to only deploy the blade, when it is fully depressed. This acts as a safety measure so the blade doesn't open accidentally in a pocket if the button is slightly depressed.
Cool color but…
Ryan E. on Apr 10, 2022

Serious blade play. I have three of these(various blade styles/color combos) and an XXL, all with the same blade play issue. When the blade is deployed in locked position, there is a considerable amount of blade play side to side. The rest is all awesome. Feels great in hand, very snappy/solid deploy & cool color combos. For the money it’s an ok buy, but given the blade play I feel like I’d be replacing it soon if I used it often. For that, it’s not used often.

Just OK
Mike R. on May 31, 2019

The knife is great looking but past that, not much! I was disappointed with how sharp it was out of the box. I was cutting a green pepper and had to push just to get it to cut. That blade should go through a pepper like a hot knife through butter. I was also disappointed with the opening. It definitely did not have a quick snap open. This will be my last Boker purchase!

Paint is gone!
Ben D. on Jan 20, 2020

I still carry and heavily use my original (likely ten years old) Boker sporting the Pohl Design logo and lock (before they were sued) and it has held more black on the handle than this new Black Widow I carried for only a couple weeks. I'm not sure were the defect is in quality control, BladeHQ or Boker, but I'm rethinking buying these any more.
