Customer Reviews

Great Quality
Maecy O. on Mar 20, 2018

Waited weeks for this to be back in stock and during that time I decided to order a Kalashnikov, which was a big mistake and I ended up returning. This however, despite being in the same price range, is a million times better. I love the color and the quality, definitely worth the wait.

Solid construction
EDIMATIER O. on Dec 21, 2019

Quality auto at an affordable price. Maybe a bit big for edc but at this price its a knife you can beat on and not feel bad.

Great knife, great price.
Gabriel T. on Dec 22, 2019

Awesome lockup, no blade play, great finish for the price. Got it on sale for $35 for father in law and he digs it. Auto is lightning quick and safety works well. Ergo's on point. good job Boker.

Worth it!!
ranoj o. on Oct 1, 2017

This is my first, but definitely NOT my last Boker knife! Very well built, smooth action upon opening and ergonomically pleasing. The weight is not bad at all and the knife feels solid. If the rest of the Boker knife collection in this price range is as good as this one, I'm in for a few more pieces! When I tell my friends that this was a sub $40 knife, they don't believe me! Excellent addition to the EDC rotation that doesn't need to be babysat!

first ever
carl w. on Dec 5, 2019

made. good price and a great knife thankksblade and the copper bly first auto works perfectly and is light enough for edc i love the tanto style

Good to go
Michael S. on Jun 20, 2022

For the price, you can’t get any better. With the cost of this knife, I definitely have to recommend it. A good EDC.

I like it !!
George R. on Aug 18, 2019

This is my first purchase from y'all and so far I'm impressed. Really like the Olive Drab with copper and the action is STRONG !! Looking forward to my next knife !!

Absolutely Amazing!
Nick T. on Oct 7, 2017

This knife is well worth the price and is perfect in every way. It fires out fast with the new spring, takes on a wicked edge, is very ergonomic and grippy, and is aesthetically pleasing. Great job Böker and thank you Blade HQ!

Absolutely Incredible!
Mac C. on Jan 10, 2019

First off: I placed my order late in the evening on the 7th, picked the cheapest delivery option (4-8 days) and it came in bright and early on the 10th. Fantastically fast delivery. As far as the knife is concerned, I'm very satisfied with it. The copper AUS-8 steel really pops with the handle color and keeps its edge very well. I have been cutting rope and boxes with it for about an hour, no problems at all. 10/10

First Automatic
Paul t. on Oct 11, 2020

This is the first automatic knife I have bought and so far so good. The thing I like about this knife it is really constructed well feels great in your hand and truly a solid knife

Fantastic knife
Michael M. on Nov 30, 2018

Built like a tank.Solid lock-up,fast action and very sharp.For the price you will not be disappointed.Paid extra for custom engraving for that personal touch...looks great.Ordered another one in a different color and blade know..why not?

Awesome knife
carlos l. on Jan 8, 2018

This was my first knife i bought with the intent of a higher carbon blade. Aus-8 steel is awesome for this price and edge lasted 10 times longer than what ive had before.

Sam S. on Mar 14, 2019

Great auto. Nice size. The scales feel great in hand.

Absolutely Incredible
William M. on Jan 22, 2019

Awesome pocket knife love it my first auto and cant wait to get more..

My 2nd Boker Auto
Jeff R. on Nov 30, 2018

This is my 2nd Boker Auto type knife and it’s awesome! I love this knife and bought some for gifts this year for friends and Family. Great action and quality, by far the best bang for the buck in my opinion!

Amazing Auto
Daniil S. on Dec 29, 2021

I want to start by saying that Bladehq sent me this knife in 2 days. Insane. For just 2 dollars shipping and it comes in 2 days is unheard of. Thank you so much Bladehq for such quick shipping. Now the knife, it is a very light weight knife that barely feels like your carrying it but not so light to where it feels cheap. This knife feels far from cheap; extremely sturdy construction, ZERO blade play. This knife features D2 steel now which is a huge upgrade from the original AUS 8 steel that it had before. The action is crisp and is very satisfying. Overall, I highly recommend this knife for anyone looking for a good auto at a friendly price point.

Excellent knife
Dephen C. on Mar 15, 2019

The only thing that would make this knife better is if the button was recessed and it didn't have a safety. Other than that this knife is sweet! The copper and OD go together so well mixed with the tanto blade. I think this is the best version of this knife. It is an absolute beast and I carry it often.

Great value
Spencer C. on Apr 28, 2018

Very sharp and solid. The quality of the knife is great, especially for the price. It is very snappy and still feels the same after about a month of having it.

Worth every penny
todd p. on Oct 13, 2020

This is a hard working auto. Sharp right out of the box and easy to sharpen. Everyone should own this knife for a work , camping , or just a beater. I will be ordering more for friends and family.

Best auto under $50 , get it before it's discontinued...
PARRIS P. on Jul 26, 2020

I'm going to buy one of each and then purchase a couple more every several weeks by virtue of this price and BLADEHQ's best selection on the web...When you find something you really appreciate , buy as many as possible!!

Great Knife
Cameron S. on Nov 30, 2019

Great knife for EDC I love it

My First Auto
Michael G. on Oct 2, 2020

And I will never look back. Very Solid and I dig the color combo. Ordering 2 more of the same model, but in different colors.

Awesome knife...
Joseph R. on Nov 21, 2018

I'm rewriting my review... I love the knife... It's built solidly and looks and feels excellent in the hand... My particular knife arrived with a ever so small nick/chip in the blade edge, but it's so minute and after some sharpening and use will be fine... I do honestly believe BladeHQ would exchange it if I wanted, but I like the knife so much, I don't want to return it for the exchange... Anyway, I'm leaving five stars because shipping was LIGHTNING fast and the knife is excellent quality for a budget auto. I'm updating this review... I ordered another knife from blade HQ and it also arrived damaged... I ordered a Linder dual action...I waited 11 days for it to arrive (all other items have arrived to me in three days) and to my expectation, it has several hairline cracks in the polymer scales near the Tang... So, my first two orders from these guys arrive damaged and delayed shipping... There's no way I'm sending them back because I already know what will happen... They'll get "lost" or "delayed"... Screw it... The only way I'm ordering from these guys again is if it's something I can't find elsewhere... Sorry BHQ, I would call and complain but when I tried to, you either didn't respond or gave me generic responses...

Killer Deal ;-)
Peter H. on Oct 28, 2019

Really Nice Knife.... Beautiful look, and I love the Color. The Auto Operates really smooth. You CANNOT Beat this Price - Thanks Guy's (and Gals) Pete

Freaking Awesome!!!!
Michael H. on Sep 20, 2022

This knife is so much nicer than I thought, the blade is shave your face sharp (I tried), there is absolutely no slop between blade and handle, the spring action is very quick and strong, the handle feels great and is definitely none slip, the safety switch works perfectly, and I couldn’t believe what a beautiful case that came with it. You absolutely will not be disappointed if you buy this beauty of a knife, worth every penny. Thanks Blade HQ Oh yea, the engraving I added to the blade came out great too.

Super auto for the $$
Jewell R. on Feb 9, 2019

First off, thank you Blade HQ for extremely fast shipping. I'll start off with my only complaint, which was the blade was a bit dull out of the box. But, the rest of the qualities were excellent. The ergonomics were great for my large hands. The button is recessed enough that there would not be any accidental firing, at least for my hands. Good placlement of the safetly. And the blade snaps open with authority. i'm very pleased with this for what little it costs. Thank you

First Boker & Auto
Joseph H. on Oct 28, 2019

This was my first Boker knife and first auto (non OTF). Not real big on “flashy” but this knife looks great! It’s really cool with the copper and drab color combo. I just don’t see how Boker makes these knives at these price points. The opening mechanism has power to it. Great EDC knife!

Amazing Daily
Parker C. on Nov 24, 2020

I use this every single day and I was very surprised by how it retains its stiffness especially for auto and it also wears really nicely

Different than all my other blades
Tyler P. on Oct 22, 2018

If you couldn't tell from the other reviews that this is a great pocket knife for the money then my review won't make much difference to you. I liked the Tanto version of the Strike with the copper/green finishes but it was out of stock for a minute. I finally was able to snag one up and I am not disappointed. Blade is centered and sharp as a tack out of the box. The lock actually works and is easy to flip back and forth. The button squeaks a little bit on mine but I forget all about it when that blade comes flying out. I really enjoy the color because it's so different than the rest of my blades. Overall, you just can't go wrong with a knife like this for under $50 shipped. This would make a great groomsman gift or maybe a bday gift for a teenager. One huge plus, in my opinion, is that it already has a deep carry pocket clip which I think all knives should have that option.

Worth WAY more than I paid
Alex G. on Oct 5, 2020

This is my fourth automatic knife, and by far the least expensive, but it is as good or better quality than any other I've owned. The action is crisp, the lock is solid and the feel is sturdy. Also, the blade is sharp as heck and made from great blade material, so I am sure it will hold its edge no problem with normal use. At this price I'm going to buy one or two more just so I can not worry about abusing it a little. GREAT BUY!

best knife
GABI Y. on Jan 8, 2020

awesome knife auto is awesome only complaint is the safety its a bit loose other then that perfect

Great knife at an exceptional price!
David A. on Jan 5, 2022

I have lots of knives. Microtechs, Benchmade's, and others that have run me upwards of $400. This knife can hang with any of them. It snaps out hard and has zero wiggles in the blade. It is appropriately heavy and is very well constructed. D2 steel. The copper-colored blade is very sturdy. It even has a safety! I am very impressed!

Pretty Damn Sweet!
Marshall H. on Feb 11, 2019

I’m not gonna lie, for 40 bucks this knife is Pretty Damn Sweet! The only thing I see wrong with it, I can’t say it’s wrong , just could be better is the button lock has some play in it. The Blade came shaven maven sharp out the box! The spring is so snappy if you’re not careful will fly out your hand. The fit and finish on this knife is pretty Spot On. I’m already a big fan of this knife. I would recommend anyone who loves knives to add this to their collection. Thanks to Blade HQ for the fast delivery! Got here in three days. I love this company like a brother.

Awesome knife.
Henry M. on Jun 12, 2018

Worth the wait! Never seems to be in stock because it flies off the shelf. That’s why I bought 2. Great knife, fast action, good blade, nice handle and low profile clip. Love it for my EDC knife. I recommend for anyone looking for a high quality budget knife.

You cant go wrong with this one.
Scott W. on Feb 22, 2019

Great knife for the price! Opens smoothly with the push of a button. Seems well built, almost no noticeable play in the blade when in the open locked position. Also this thing comes hair popping sharp. No complaints.

It's very good!!
Kent P. on Jan 5, 2022

I love this Böker Strike knife with the desert tan tanto blade & aluminum OD green handle! It's action is snappy & crisp & the button doesn't stick. The safety switch is a bit loose & it wasn't sharp right outta the box. But I'll give it a keen edge tomorrow. Those r the only negative things about it. I've wanted this color combo for at least a year & I finally got one. I highly recommend it. Thanks!

Nice Knife, My EDC now
Scott W. on Jun 12, 2018

I like this knife. It’s automatic function is snappy and the button is easy to find. I like the tanto tip and the blade seems pretty sharp out of the box. I like the copper blade but I have noticed that it has some discoloration on it after 3 months and that the green grip is wearing off in a few places. I would have thought the color would stay longer than that. It just makes it look used which it is since I carry it every day. I would like to figure out a way to get the blade back to the original color. I haven’t used this for anything that should have discolored it. Other than that I like this knife and would recommend it. I think the copper blade makes it look cooler than some of my other knives and it’s probably the fastest of my automatic knives. Recommended!

Hard hitting workhorse
ARI L. on Dec 10, 2019

This bad Larry feels super nice in hand and is snappy on the open. This was my first full auto and I am very pleased. The Copper blade is a nice color option that you don't see around much, and the OD Green scales are always in style.

Best knife I have
Wes M. on Dec 23, 2018

Very happy with this knife. I did lots of research and decided on this one. So far very happy fits well in my hand automatic function is smooth and snappy. Very sharp out the box and is holding a great edge so far and I use it daily.

Great auto at a great price
Guy C. on Dec 10, 2019

Don't let the price or the blade steel fool you. This is a great snappy auto at a steal of a price. It delivers, as is expected from Boker. It has certainly found a place in my EDC rotation.

Good Looking Knife
Hector L. on Jan 22, 2020

This Boker Strike is perfect for cutting anything in your everyday carry. its is light for aluminium handles and the action is nice!

Love this knife!
Stan W. on Sep 22, 2017

I have been fighting my knife addiction and swore I wouldn't buy any more knives. Then I saw this Boker in copper and at $40 couldn't pass it up. This is a great knife at twice that price. Nice slim profile, light at 4.4 oz and absolutely beautiful blade. Knife is razor sharp and auto action is strong and quick. Textured auto button is slightly raised and easy to find in the dark. It also has a safety switch to avoid accidental deployment and additional safety when open. I have a number of Kizers, ZT's, Spyderco's and Kershaws and this is my new favorite EDC. Aus 8 blade takes a wicked edge and holds it fairly well , also I won't have to "baby" this knife at $40.

Superb design
John W. on Sep 22, 2017

This little machine is perfect in every way. Excellent design and craftsmanship. Strong, sharp and the clip can be switched to suit. Has some weight; but that's ok. Feels good in the palm. I can understand why it is out of stock. I will probably go on the waiting list for a second one. This is definitely a home run.

Beauty & the Beast
Michael B. on Sep 23, 2017

Aesthetically this is a beauty; the color scheme is terrific. The handle scales are well sculpted with good traction. Functionally this is a beast. The spring is fast, fires with authority, with a solid lock-up. Out of the box my knife is very sharp. Hello to my new EDC.

First auto
Elijah S. on Nov 10, 2018

First automatic knife I have owned. Flips open nicely with a good snap. Color scheme on it with the OD green and copper finished blade looks wonderful. The blade could be a bit sharper but still out of the box it cuts through various materials without much issue. Very satisfied with this purchase and would highly recommend this knife to anyone who is in the market for an affordable automatic knife. Thanks Blade HQ!

I surprisingly like this knife
Trey C. on Jan 8, 2019

Bought this out of impulse due to the copper colored blade and green handle. Not a fan of tanto blades but i really dig this knife. Had to sharpen blade due to it struggling to cut printer paper right out of the box. Ergos are nice and sits well in the pocket tip up. I already ordered the same knife in a drop point.

Good Auto
Jack C. on Jan 24, 2020

Kicks like hell! Very satisfying

Smooth action
Brandon M. on Nov 15, 2019

Maybe the smoothest action of any auto I own. Fires hard enough, but doesn't jump out of your hand. Blade runs very smooth, breaks in nicely. 2 issues: Yes, they come very dull. Could not cut rope let alone magazine paper. Worksharp took care of that quickly. Secondly, mine has front to back rock. You can hear and see the button lock move slightly as you rock the blade forward. Not a deal breaker because rarely if ever does the blade move forward while cutting, just an FYI.

Good Value
Travis C. on Feb 6, 2019

Good value, good grip & ergonomics. Fairly cool. Found a small nick on the blade right out of the box. Not a huge deal but they need to tighten QC. The deep carry pocket clip is mediocre. I do like that the option is there for tip up carry though. Nice copper colored blade. Comfortable in my XL hands. Very strong spring. The plunger release button was a tad rough feeling out of the box - worked in a couple drops of oil to help but still not as smooth as I’d like. All in all an interesting looking knife at a decent price.

Good action but the knife was dull!!
Alan E. on Apr 2, 2018

For the money I would buy this knife again. I like every thing about knife but be prepared to get the stones out.

Andrew P. on Aug 7, 2019

I’m satisfied with it, and I also like the great quality of the knife. Took a little bit of opening to break in, but overall it’s a 4 to 4 and a half star knife. 👍

Nice buy
Faustino G. on Jun 3, 2022

So first off the slight short comings. The grind is a slight bit uneven the blade came working sharp not overly sharp. Now the positive the weight feels great the action is smooth and the blade thickness just feels very solid for the price a great knife I'm just sad bladehq doesn't offer it in s30v for $10 more they have it in s30v on bladops that being said seems very solid will put it to the test been carrying mostly d2 for few years this is definitely going in rotation

Great value
Markus C. on Jan 29, 2020

Feels very comfortable in hand strong lock up easy to maintain Edge for this price I'm not afraid 2 carry at work and abused it

Boker plus striker
Chad k. on Jul 24, 2019

Decent action when opening safety works good, but the blade doesn't keep an edge. But overall for the price it's a good knife

Awesome Knife
Ken L. on Sep 25, 2020

Great Knife for this price range. Was hoping for D2 steel but I guess you can't have everything for under $45. Nice snappy action. and great looks.

Love it
Albert A. on Aug 24, 2020

To keep it short i love the knife it feels great gets the job done for what I need it to. The colorway is dope my only problem is the lock switch seems loose and is easily engaged accidentally

Beautiful Knife if kept clean
Stephen D. on Feb 3, 2020

I love this knife. It is gorgeous. The coloring is awesome and when it opens, it hits like a Boker. I would have given it five stars but it is a pain to keep clean. I feel that is more on me than the knife though.

Had higher hopes...
Reid J. on Nov 25, 2019

Really like the shape and colors of this particular knife. The grip is easy to get comfortable with, and I'm a tanto fan, and I'm a Boker fan. But after only a couple weeks of EDC with this particular knife the green started wearing away all around the scales and, while I know AUS-8 isn't the 'greatest' blade steel out there, after several months I can't seem to keep a decent edge for any length of time. I open and breakdown a lot of boxes at work and it seems like I'm always wanting to strop it. Maybe the factory grind was off to begin with? So I still really like the look and shape, but the materials and finish have have left me wanting. I guess maybe there's a reason the price is so attractive. My advice, save your pennies a little longer for something a bit higher up the quality spectrum.

Boker Plus Strike Tanto Desert Warrior
Larry C. on Aug 4, 2020

I waited to get this knife because it was out of stock for a time. When it was it stock I purchased the knife and was excited for it to arrive. When it did arrive I was very disappointed. The knife looked great but the edge was not sharp and the auto mechanism was very jerky and not at all smooth. Again, very disappointed!! I would not purchase this knife, even on sale!!

ben m. on Jun 28, 2022

I bought this knife because I wanted a cool useable auto that felt good in the hands. while it is cool an auto and somewhat comfy in the hands it came with a terrible factory edge. I would not get this knife again. it's disappointing to me as I spent a decent amount on this knife for it to be dull.

keith j. on Feb 12, 2019

I ordered one of these for my son for Christmas and it was awesome. So good I ordered one a week ago for myself. Mine not so much. When you go to release the blade, there is a definite catch/hang before it opens. Plus it takes quite a bit of force to push that button down to release it. Neither of those happened with the first one I purchased. (it's weird, if I put the safety on, then push the button, then take the safety off it takes very little effort to push the button to release the blade.) Positive is that it arrived dang sharp. Think I'm done with Boker though. Plenty of others on the market. 50-50 chance isn't really worth it.

Done giving Boker chances
TRAVIS F. on Apr 4, 2022

Picked this up to try something new after a less than stellar example of the kalashnikov 74. There was so much side to side blade play when deployed i figured there must be something wrong. I was going to disassemble the knife and apply some fresh oil but the torx screw stripped almost immediately with light pressure. So now i have a knife with questionable safety that i can not disassemble and fix. This was the last time i'll give boker a shot, the quality is just too low even with the low price

Bit disappointed
Hugo H. on May 17, 2019

What to say 1st of all the knife is made in Taiwan. I was expecting a made in Germany knife so some point less here, second it came very dull and it has been really a problem get the blade sharp, no is kind of ok now but not as sharp as the Benchmades or Spydercos. The mechanism that opens and keeps the blade open does not look as robust as others time will tell. Also when it hopes you can feel like a small stop and the opens. Fields wired On the good side the knife looks amazing but if can not perform is useless.

Just ok
Colby W. on May 7, 2019

Functionally, the knife performs great. The blade however...mine came dull. Like, really dull. I've sharpened many 'o knives to shaving sharp and I cannot for the life of me get this thing to take an edge. Maybe I just got a bad one, but I cannot recommend it.

Bad Pocket Clip
Joe B. on Jul 25, 2019

Just wanted to drop a note about the clip. I had my new knife securely placed into my pocket for a regular use type of day and lost it within 48 hours. Please beware that the clip does not have a lot of tension and may not be deep enough to keep your knife secure with normal use.
