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.

push button spring too stiff
steve m.
replaced button spring with lighter one actually a spring from a bic pen which I cut to size,consistent now no premature opening issues,low profile button and stiff spring made this knife unreliable
Hunter c.
This knife clips on the pocket without being bulky, heavy, or hindering pocket access. On top of the convenient size, it is sharp as can be! These combined, allow for (actual) single hand use. (Push button auto and not having to hold what youíre cutting because itís so sharp.)
Also having the push button away from the clip, prevents from accidentally hitting while retrieving.
(I just bought 2 more for gifts.)

bought to replace buck vantage and really like the auto function (figet toy for grown ups) its light weight and sharp with a deep carry clip, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a compact edc auto knife.

Received a full week late due to usps incompetence, but that doesn't affect this rating. First, I received an open box, which always bothers me. Breaking a factory seal is somehow one of the joys of buying new toys. I find the button to be mushy at best, it's very particular about how it is activated. Hopefully, this will break in- using a thumbnail with a lot of force on the sweet spot is going to be an annoyance if it doesn't. For $30, it's alright- I have faster assisted openers fwiw. If I paid more I'd not be pondering a return right now, I'd be filling out the form. I knew I should have ponied up the cash for a Piranha...
Great budget auto
Chris V.

not bad
Really Fun EDC Automatic Knife
Wade W.
I purchased the Boker Mini Kalashnikov Automatic several months ago and it has become my favorite EDC knife.

Spent some time reprofiling the blade with wet stones and it is absolutely razor sharp.

The mini size is perfect for easy carry. I forget it's there, until I need it.

Knife is sturdy, well built and dependable. Shipping from BladeHQ was fast with tracking.
Great Small Knife
Jeff C.
I really like the size of this knife. It's easy to carry all day and not know you have it on. The blade deployment is quick and positive each time. It takes a little effort to push the button in, but that's okay with me. It appears well constructed and arrived very sharp. For the price it's hard to beat. My next order will be for its big brother. I'm pleasantly surprised at the quality and workmanship of these imported knives. The blade is perfectly centered and without any side play. The pocket clip lets the knife ride low in your pocket, out of sight. Good job Boker.
Not the best constructed
Susan T.
I really wanted to love this knife. How can you go wrong with a simple push button, right? Unfortunately, the button is hard to push in all the way. You really have to mash. Told myself this was good since it wouldn't open accidentally, but after using a few times, I couldn't open it at all. I finally lubed it with some WD-40 and used a screwdriver to release the mechanism between the handle pieces. Got it working again. This is a really small knife, even for me. I'm 5'3 and 120 pounds and its still small. The really great thing and the reason I gave it four stars is that this knife is super sharp!!!
Great in watch pocket
Morris B.
Removed pocket clip then cut off and replaced cut piece back in slot provided to fill the gap. Now it fits smoothly in watch pocket where I always keep a pocket knife anyway. Retired my Swiss army pocket pal.

Glad I picked up a couple of these knives great buy nicely made and opens with a positive snap.

Best Knife Around For The Money!!!!
Ricky H.
I ordered one of these for Christmas. After receiving the knife and looking over it. This thing is in my opinion is one of the best knives out there in an automatic. It opens very smoothly with just the push of a button. It has a great carry weight. You hardly even notice it in your pocket. Overall I couldn't have asked for anything better. Very short shipping times and BLADEHQ is problem one of the best companys if not the best company to deal with. I will definitely be ordering more stuff from them myself. AAAAAA++++++ ON OVER ALL EXPERIENCE!!!!
Very Pleased
Fred D.
This might just be the best value in an automatic knife ever. I am very pleased with the fit and finish. The blade action is fast and crisp. I don't see how they can make a knife of this quality a this price point!
Great knife!
James C.
Nice packaging but even nicer knife. Super tight no wiggle anywhere. Blade has a very nice edge, and opens with a snap. Very nice sturdy deep carry clip, overall good feel, and weight. 100% happy with this purchase.
Impressive for the price
patrick b.
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
David S.
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
Chris A.
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.
