This Blade HQ Exclusive Kalashnikov automatic knife has been dubbed the Desert Warrior Bowie and features an exclusive bowie blade made from AUS-8 stainless steel with a copper finish. The comfortable handle is OD green finished aluminum with molded finger grips and jimping where the handle and blade meet. The design is thin, elegant and comfortable. The action of this knife is first rate and comparable to that of the Boker Magnum series. As with other Kalashnikov knives, this one comes with a pocket clip for easy tip-up carry.

Although this knife does not include a sheath, we have a selection of sheaths made specifically for Boker Kalashnikov knives:

The Boker Kalashnikov Auto Desert Warrior

This Desert Warrior with the Bowie Blade is an awesome purchase for me. The color combination, very strong spring action, as well as the sale price, made this purchase a "no brainer." It is built like a tank, solid and functional. It opens with an authoritative "Krack!" Weight balance is perfect. Very sharp and "stabby" right out of the box. I love the scales and molded finger grips. Feels good in the hand. If you're in the mood to treat yourself to something special that will make you feel like a bad ass every time you take it with you and show it off. I will probably buy a few more as special gifts for a few of my friends. Highly recommend this model. And as usual, BHQ out did themselves with flawless service and snappy delivery.
extremely happy with the desert warrior

This knife, the desert warrior bowie Kalashnikov, has a strong spring and opens with a loud, attention getting click, it closes with a nice reassuring click as well. Solidly built and sharp. I also bought the Imperial white Kalashnikov, should be the same action but there is no click when closing this one. It feels kind of "mushy", which makes me have to double check it to make sure it's not going to accidentally fly open. Still, I like it and would buy another.
Na zdorovie!

I just got this knife and love it. It is my first auto and I can't stop using it. It is also a very fidgety knife just like all other autos. It is very sharp out of the box and the tip is also very sharp but be careful what you use the tip for because it is very thin. Overall, I love this Knife!

Blade came with a nice edge. Very snappy. Will purchase again, but it will be a different blade style. Tip was very thin and broke off at the very end. The sand color blade became tarnished soon after use so if that type of thing bugs you go with steel/Black blade.

The only thing I didn't like about it is I thought the end of the clip came out too far and kept getting caught on things and would ether bent more or pull out of my pocket.

For the price, this is probably one of the best autos on the market. As far as blade steel goes aus-8 is cheap but stands up to wear of everyday use. Deployment is very snappy is actually quite powerful. Very impressed with build quality for the low price.

This is the perfect EDC for me. It looks cool, sounds cool and makes short work of everyday light-duty tasks. It tears through boxes, handles errant threads and opens stuff all while maintaining a sharp edge. I really appreciate the low-profile footprint of the pocket clip. I love this knife so much that I bought a few more to give as gifts.
Very nice knife!

This knife is lightning fast. Pretty light and feels great in the hand. I'm 6 foot 3 with big hands and it fits and feels comfortable in my hand. The pocket clip is great too, sturdy, stiff and deep carry. And the price is great.

I have many Boker brand knives and love their quality and styles. Great company.

I just ordered another version of this knife, the black stonewash dagger style. Can't wait!

Plus this company has very fast shipping! Will definitely return here again.

This knife is in my current EDC rotation and was my first auto. The blade deployment is quick and authoritative and the knife came out of box with a good edge. I touched it up on a diamond stone and after a couple of weeks of light duty use seems to be holding pretty well. The aluminum handles are a little slick but I like the design of the deep carry pocket clip as it keeps the knife well concealed and the integrated finger grooves help you keep a nice purchase on the knife. Nice jimping on the scales and spine. Finish is ok but will start to get some "scars" with use. Can't beat this little auto for the price.
Pretty quick knife

This switchblade is just as good as others costing 2-3x as much. It fires like a rocket. I played with it enough that it did fly out of my hand once, so maintain focus. The handle feels great in my hands (Med size hands) and the pocket clip is ergonomic in that respect. It also has deep pocket carry. It came very sharp and will cut curves in paper out of the box. I'll probably end up purchasing different blade shapes just for fun. And this knife is a good switchblade to give someone as a gift, not too pricey and very high quality.

Got my knife today in a cool lookin box shaped like an ak mag. Fit and finish is nice. Razor sharp out of the box. Opens hard and fast and locks up nicely. No wiggle. Blade shape is awesome however the tip is needle thin. Wouldn't use this for heavy work, but for an edc self defense knife it would suit you well.
