For a knife to be considered tactical, it must meet some high expectations. It must be strong, easy and fast to deploy, be nimble in combat, and be efficient in utility. The Boker Strike meets and those high expectations, and does so at a price that is near impossible to beat. Not only is the Strike a superb tactical knife, but it comes in several sizes, in a multitude of colors, and a selection of blade styles. There is a perfect Strike model to put in any pocket, from combat uniforms to blue jeans. No matter how you carry it, the Strike is ready for anything at the push of a button!
There are dozens of Boker Automatic Knives, and each one maximizes function and value. Check them out!
*Automatic conversion knives are retrofitted by a third party to accept a coil spring. The factory warranty on these knives is void, but we do warranty the conversion/spring of these knives for one (1) year from date of purchase.
Boker is on a roll with making great autos at a cheap price and this is another entry to the line. I already own a Kalashnikov and Plus Strike and both feel fantastic. This one holds up just as well, while still in a smaller package. Fits great even with larger hands and its definitely earned a place in my pocket or even hunting kit. As automatics are the best hunting knives other than fixed blades. no need to worry about thumb studs and assists slipping from blood or fish oil on hands when you can just press one button and have it open without issue
So I'm a left-handed individual in a right-handed world. Because of this certain knives can be very hard to open and close with only my left hand. This knife luckily is not one of those. At least now it isn't. When the knife first came it was very hard to close one-handed with only my left hand. Like shoes, you have to "break-in" new knives so after owning it for a while it's now much easier to open and close it with only my left hand. So yeah this is left-handed approved
Knife has a balanced feel. Its not exceedingly light, but feels strong with the scales being made of Aluminum. Blade is D2, and has a sharp factory edge out of the box. Push button release is easy to depress and the blade fires super snappy. Safety lock is an added bonus and hard to believe its included on such an inexpensive quality knife. Carry clip is stiff, and in combination with the textured scales could pose wear issues for your clothes so be aware.
Perfect entry level auto for EDC. It's just a slight bit larger than a lighter and fits perfectly in hand. I would recommend this knife and will purchase again for gifts.
Super very day carry. Just the right size . Great smooth action -lock up tight . Sharp blade right out of the box. Has a dandy lock -great pocket clip . No flaws . Excellence buy for the money.
So this is my first auto knife. I own some bucks, kershaws, gerbers, and a benchmade, so that's mostly what I'm used to. I like pocket knives, and usually buy one every year just to switch up my carry options. I have to say this knife is absolutely gorgeous, the blade is fantastic, and it arrives well sharpened. The knife deploys quickly with a satisfying snap, and locks in place firmly. I'm accustomed to liner locks for my edc, so the auto opening mechanism, and the push-button closing took some getting used to. However, to get this knife to the point where I'm happy with it, I had to make some modifications to it. It's probably not a good habit, but I found myself fidgeting with it quite often, just deploying and closing it. While this does definitely put undue wear and tear on the spring, it failed in a surprisingly short amount of time. In fact, the spring warped and ceased functioning after only 3 days. But even so, how much use could I put on in 3 days? Assuming I opened it 100 times in that short timespan: how long would that last in typical usage? Probably not as long as you would like. At this point, I had to take the knife apart and attempt to repair it. There are videos on YouTube that assisted in this process and I was able to open up the knife and reassemble it. However, the spring was basically shot. It didn't appear warped, but it simply would not hold tension, and would constantly pop out of the hole in the blade that the stem of the spring is supposed to go through to tension the blade. The reason for this is because the stem is extremely short. Even after fixing the spring and putting it back in place multiple times, it contined to pop loose when I attempted to close it. Assuming it didn't pop out during reassembly. I finally gave up and decided to buy a replacement spring. I ended up ordering from another website because they advertised "boker strike" on the list of supported knives, and I was willing to gamble that it supported the mini as well . I'm happy to report that the spring does in fact work for this knife. Furthermore, the replacement spring I ordered was way higher gauge. The metal coils were much thicker, and the stem was longer. Though strangely the leg that sits in the knife plate was shorter. However, closing the knife feels way better than it ever did, and it deploys wicked fast now. You can adjust that by tightening or loosening the bolt up towards the blade. I highly recommend ponying up the $8 and buying the springs if you get this knife, cause it will fail on you, and it's a worthwhile upgrade. Another side affect of taking it apart multiple times is that the safety switch developed some slop. It came quite stiff, so I'm not sure if that would have happened naturally, but it's worth noting. There is a screw on the saftey you can tighten, and that probably would stiffen it up a bit again. So while I may be a bit critical of this knife, I do like it enough to give it 4 stars. If you want to just buy an auto knife, and not need to touch it at all: you'll probably want to buy something at a higher price point. TL;DR: It's a nice knife, but buy replacement springs, and be prepared/able to swap.
Great feel in my hand but came extremely dull out of the box. So dull can’t even cut paper without immense pressure. If you don’t mind having to sharpen a brand new knife then it’s worth it
My only complaint on mine is it does not keep a sharp edge for long. If not for that I would rate it 5 stars It has good balance - feels good easy to use and close with one hand (a big plus) As others have mentioned the clip is strong and with the rough surface it causes wear quickly on pockets.
This knife had a lot of potential, but fell short. The blade took a nice edge. The safety lock is sloppy and lacks a positive stop. The clip is overly tight and needed bending. The scale finish is showing significant wear after only a week of carrying.
