Description

Description

Designed by renowned knife maker Lucas Burnley, this push-button Boker Kihon is a Blade HQ exclusive model that's been tricked out with an aftermarket coil spring for hard-hitting automatic action!

"Kihon" is the Japanese term for the basic techniques of several martial arts. With tactical aim and some far eastern flare, the Boker Kihon is worthy of its name. This tactical/EDC knife is destined to become a classic.

The copper finished AUS-8 blade has a sweeping edge that makes slicing a breeze. Designed with traditional Japanese swords in mind, the handle has a rayskin texture that provides a good grip while not tearing up the pocket.

Features:
  • AUS-8 drop point blade is easy to sharpen and cuts like a dream
  • Ray skin textured aluminum handle is tough and ergonomic
  • Powerful and reliable automatic action

Only a primary grind on the edge and would not even open a bag of chips. Knife looks great and is nice in the hand. Stiff spring to close with average opening speed. I have finally gotten a better edge but still need to hone it some more. Sloppy QC Boker!!!!!
Like it better than the Kalashnikov

A bit longer, lighter and thinner than the Kalashnikov. Seems quite sturdy, but primarily for EDC where legal. I particularly like the style and pocket clip better than the Kalashnikov. However, I have to agree with one reviewer - the blade is dull as dirt! It shouldn't take much to fix that little issue, but Boker could certainly do a better job. This is a great economical and stylish auto and I'd grab another if it had a steel upgrade.
One excellent paper cutter :)

I have a few knife and even a Kalashnikov and the the fit and finish on this seems to be on another level I always said I wouldn’t buy 2 of one knife but I might on this one

This is only the second automatic knife I've owned - the first one was an Italian stiletto way back in the day. Boker has done a grand job in producing this knife - very positve opening action, good overall size, and I like the Desert Warrior finish.

There is always one little change I would like to see - use D2 rather than Aus 8, but the price point would certainly climb accordingly. I think it would be well worth it.

I recommend this knife for anyone wanting to have a moderately priced, reliable automatic opener.

I have been waiting very impatiently for this in the mail since its launch last Friday. I just got it today and I really love it! It is the little things that make a lasting impression on me and besides how good it looks the thing that got me on this knife is how good the textured button feels on this. Its a joy to fire. Now to make this a helpful review I want to mention the three things that disappointed me a little. First it feels good in hand but its a little short in hand. The action doesnt seem as powerful as the AK 74 by Boker, and it didnt come with a deep carry pocket clip. Regardless I love this knife!
Not quite there... even for the price

Just received mine today. The build quality is on par with the Kalashnikov. It feels solid overall and seems well built.
Although, the pivot screw was cranked so tight it would barely deploy without loosening it quite a bit and still drags unless you hit the button just so.
Unfortunately it's biggest flaw out of the box is the factory edge. To be brutally honest, it's the dullest blade I have ever received from the factory. I would say it's about a step above a butter knife and is a struggle to get the edge to bite on anything, so if you don't do your own sharpening you'll need to find someone.
If you're looking for your first auto I would recommend going with the Kalashnikov. It's still just a better overall knife that comes razor sharp from the factory.
Blade HQ response:
Sorry the factory edge on your knife wasn't up to par! It sounds like you got one that slipped QC. Please contact customer service and we'll get you one that is razor sharp.
