Description

Description

This EXCLUSIVE Kalashnikov is furnished with a satin finished dagger blade and a black aluminum handle. The single-edged dagger blade hearkens back to medieval times in style, but remains up to modern cutting standards!

Inspired by the Kalashnikov rifle (also known as the AK-47), the Boker Kalashnikov is a powerful automatic knife. With ergonomic aluminum handle construction, the knife fits comfortably in your hand with a jimping-enhanced grip. The Kalashnikov hearkens back to its namesake when it's time to fire. With one intentional push of the button, the sharpened 3.25" AUS-8 steel blade explodes into a bullet-fast swing and locks firmly in the open position. The "kick" of the Kalashnikov is snappy and satisfying, but not so hard it will throw the knife from your hand. You may find yourself wanting to open it over, and over again.

The Kalashnikov auto features a deep-carry pocket clip and a lanyard hole. Looking for a sheath? We stock sheaths made specifically for Boker Kalashnikov knives:

My second Boker auto...
SSSSS

I have a Boker Strike...and I love that knife. I am very in tune with the feel of the knife in hand and on open and close. I'm able to close both the Strike and the Kalashnikov with one hand (not advised for everyone). It's a feature I like very much and makes using the knife more enjoyable. My strike is a drop point...the Kalashnikov was the spear.
The knife arrived with a sharp blade and a centered blade...perfect score so far. First issue I had was that the spear point, with a very thin back blade made one hand closing very difficult. Additionally, the thin profile of the overall spear point blade made me feel that I would not be comfortable using the knife the way I normally use my knives...I'm rough on them.
So, two strikes against it, I opted to return it. That said, I have since ordered the drop point Kalashnikov and am hopeful that it will alleviate both my issues.
In short, great knife, just wasn't a fan of the blade I chose (might be good for others).

I am now up to 3 of these knives. The first one was a present from my son. The second I gave as a present to a friend and the 3rd I carry for work. I work at a county target range where I pull skeet and trap. The job is knife intensive due to the need to continually cut open boxes of targets, plastic wrap which holds the cases of targets to the pallets and other knife related duties. It always opens, holds an edge well and has become my number one go to tool! Thanks for an excellent product.

This is one of the first auto knives I ever purchased. The only complaint I have about it is the addiction"that I blame this knife for" for buttery smooth autos. For the price you cant beat the snappy action this knife has. I would love to see this dagger version with a higher end steel. I would totally recommend to anyone who is even remotely interested in an auto.
Good knife...

Great blade, awesome auto mechanism and I love the locking system. However, I didn't realize the scales are painted and after only a few days of carrying it, the paint is starting to chip from rubbing against coins in my pocket...
I know this doesn't affect the utility of the knife, but I would rather have anodized or perhaps G10 scales.
Still a great knife for the money, I'm just nit picking...

First knife I bought from BladeHq and the quality for a $40 knife is unreal. Great auto action and hand feel. If I had one con not really sharp out of the box, but the blade sharpens easily. Only took 2 days to receive, A+ BladeHq!!

Is the steel the best? No, but AUS8 is a good user steel that sharpens well.

Would buy again! and i'm hoping for some good steel upgrade runs!

Pros:
Cheap, functions well, cheap, feels good in the hand, cheap.

Cons:
I have 3 Cold Steels in AUS8, all will hold an edge better than this knife. My opinion is Boker's AUS8 is too soft.

The knife came very dull which lead to a lot of time changing the edge....which by the way, rolls very easily.

The pocket clip needs to be reversible and half the size it currently is.

I realize its not a high dollar knife, however, simple changes would make it far better with little to no extra expense. This knife has more potential than as is.

I wish I would have spent the extra money on a Kershaw Blur.

great value and incomparable service

I received my knife today after ordering it a few days ago. The cutting edge looks like it has been ground but not sharpened. The knife is dull except at the dagger point. It is exceptionally pokey.
The seals on my box were open. I assume that the knife was converted to automatic after it was manufactured. The action is still a little stiff but I hope it loosens up as I play around with with it.
the best auto under $50, period.

I purchased 2 of these.... one for myself and one for my wife. My version is the 'raw' version, (clip point, my wifes is a tanto) meaning no paint (the paint comes off very easily on these knives, and the raw version I dont worry about that, and to me, it looks great).
One amazing thing about this knife... you can adjust the screw to zero blade play, and its still insanely snappy.... very fast blade action, there is no safety on this knife so be careful. Having said that the button has some travel before firing and is stiffer than a lot of autos (my benchmade afo ii for example).
This knife is very well made, extremely easy to sharpen (steel on the $40 version, the most common model, is aus 8 so its budget friendly but decent... much better than gas station rubbish). Easy to take apart and put back together for cleaning etc.
Note : The box will have been opened when you receive it..... The auto is a conversion by Bladehq themselves.
This is easily the best auto for under $50. Very sturdy, snappy, and a good EDC for light duty. It needs sharpening fairly often if its your EDC, given its not premium steel... but come on.... Its 40 bucks!!
very good knife, and a great first auto buy.

This a good well built knife for the money. The blade can use a little sharpening.

My only complaint is Blade HQ sent me a knife which had been opened, safer seal on both sides of box had been cut. But, the knife appears to be unused.l

I have been using this knife since September 19th when I received it as my EDC. Today It wouldn't open automatically at all! Blew it out with compressed air and lubed it with a few drops of Benchmade blue around the pivot and firing mechanism. Finally it started working again! Boker will not take back any autos for repair, but, hopefully, BladeHQ could take care of any problems??? Anyway, it's a great knife for the money; I just hope it keeps on working.

I ordered mine recently, it arrived less than a week later, shipping from Utah to my State of Texas where its legal to carry a switch Blades within certain parameters of which the Boker Kalashnikov Dagger fits easily. Now to the knife ! Price is awesome for the quality!!! Blade was pretty sharp, but.... not quite sharp enough for me (sorry guys, you can't please everyone) and I'm fanatical about my blades being sharp. It wasn't quite sharp enough to shave hair with, but after 20 minutes it was where I wanted it. This is by far the best knife company. Service-- shipping-- pricing--quality of products everything is just awesome! You won't be disappointed. I've been buying from other online knife companies, with no problems, but BladeHQ just beats the competition hands down. New customer. For life!
Love it!

My first auto, and it's a bit addictive to play with at my (home!) desk.

I really do want a Microtech Ultratech OTF D/E but...That's pricy. Not saying I won't get one, but I need to wait and sell more (art) work first.

This knife is affordable, and so far, seems quite high quality.

I also love the swedge/false edge. It's thin, and really adds to the "dagger" look.

All in all, a great knife, and for the $$, you really can't go wrong.

PS: I am curious...The Boker 'safety seal' stickers were cut when I received it. Is that Blade HQ quality control? Did I receive a returned product? It's fine; there's nothing wrong with the knife. It's pristine...But still, I wonder about that.
