This Desert Warrior Mini Kalashnikov has a copper finished dagger blade with a plain edge. The OD green coated aluminum handle has a tactical finished pocket clip and hardware.

We're excited to offer the 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.

9/10 Great knife
Ethan F.
Pros: super snappy, easy to sharpen, vertical lock up is pretty much perfect, action is fun and reliable, super tiny and light so it disappears in your pocket, decent steel, desert warrior pattern looks great, super deep carry clip, itís a bargain for the price

Cons: you need to realize how small this knife is (it surprised me but it is easy to get used to), ergonomics are good but since they just shrunk the knife the finger choils donít exactly line up, and horizontal lock up is a bit wiggly, out of the box it is not super sharp

Overall: I would give it a 9/10 would definitely recommend
I like it but.....
Greg K.
I like this knife alot. Feels good in the hand, good clean fast opening. Looks good, But it was not very sharp out of the box!! I'm kinda disappointed with that. But it's a keeper.
Dull edge and a bad grind
Ben C.
This knife works great an and has a good solid lockup but the problem is it is dull out of the box and when I went to sharpen it I noticed the blade near the ricasso was not ground at the same angle as the rest of the blade which necessitated a lot of work with a course stone to reprofile the edge to get it sharp along the whole length of the blade.
This may be due to the spear shaped blade and I would be curious if the clip point has the same issue.
Impressive for price
Layton O.
First Boker and first auto. Action is snappy, but not so hard itíll fly out of your hands. The mini is a great size if you prefer a smaller sized EDC. The coating on the aluminum handles feels good in hand and has a little more traction compared to normal anodized aluminum handles. Pocket clip allows very deep carry but does have a little side to side play due to the design. Blade edge wasnít the sharpest on arrival, but good enough for most tasks.
Highly recommend this knife and will be soon ordering the full size version.
Awesome Knife, Awesome Value!
Gary G.
Just got my knife today and I am very pleased! This knife is going to be my new EDC. First thing I noticed was the high quality and ease of operation. Add in the low cost and it's a no brainer! Very fun knife and joy to have!
Best knife for the money
Christian T.
A solid auto for under $40? Canít go wrong with that. Decent blade material for price, any of these that are colored blade will scratch up with use.
Great value
Joshua S.
Purchased this for my wife who loves it. The release button is not the smoothest and the steel is the of average quality. At this price point you're getting a fantastic knife in my opinion.
Very nice
Andres Q.
Nice little knife, the auto-deployment works perfect. The color scheme is very nice!
I like it but...
Joseph C.
Just got today and when opening the button grinds some before it opens. Not the smooth action I was hoping for. Blade was sharp but not as sharp as others I got from Blade HQ. Maybe because itís new it will get better but first impressions was not so great
not perfect, but loved
Jake A.
Bought this for my stepdad, and was shocked by how snappy the action was. It is a little thick, with a sub par steel, but still very fun.
Literal mini but still great
Peter K.
The color scheme on this knife is very unique and looks great in person. The copper dagger blade with the OD green handle compliment each other very well. The deployment is snappy and strong which is nice. The deep carry pocket clip sits really nicely in the pocket, you barely notice it's there. The pivot screw also has a nice design.
There are only two things that bother me about this knife though. First being the size, which is more of a personal preference, but it's a lot smaller than I expected. Although, it's still comfortable in the hand thanks to the finger grooves. Second being the odd jimping on the pocket clip side. When reaching into the pocket to grab the knife, your fingers will graze those jimps and is not very comfortable.
All in all, for the price and unique look, it is worth the buy.
Love the Color Scheme
Joseph C.
Have bought several of these, and this one was no different, but of blade creep, easy fix. Action is fast, good lockup, AUS8, and an auto for $30, is a solid deal. Order fulfillment and shipping were fast, Thanks BHQ.
It's good but...
Zack G.
It's a pretty good knife but mine came incredibly dull. And I can't even seem to get a good edge on it.
A great deal on a solid knife.
Lance E.
I was skeptical but this knife proved me wrong. Great fit and finish. No play. Quality automatic knife for budget minded. Release was a little hesitant at first but after just a few minutes of working it in it's now perfect.
Very cool knife
Justin H.
I love this little knife! It's action is very snappy. It took me by surprise. The value of knife you get is incredible for the price point. The pivot screw even has intricate lettering and a nice design. Exceptional knife, I highly recommend buying it.
Big knife attitude
Ganice C.
Just got this mini Boker what a great little knife. Action is crisp, great lock up. I like this mini more than the full size Boker. Great for my purse or backpack.
Great knife for the price.
James M.
Good crisp action. Sharp out of the box. Small in the hand but that is why they call it a mini. Very impressed with the amount of value this knife has.
