This Blade HQ Exclusive Desert Warrior XXL Kalashnikov features a copper blade with D2 steel and a OD green aluminum handle.
The Boker XXL Kalashnikov is big. It's really big! It's so big it warranted a new box, a new handle shape, and a new aftermarket spring. This beastly Blade HQ Exclusive is a great option for a tactical knife, a real statement of an EDC knife, and thanks to its extra length, even a folding automatic kitchen knife!
Boker Kalashnikov Knives come in many sizes, a variety of blade shapes, and tons of colors!

This is the one I’ve been waiting for. I prefer this dagger or drop point type of blade. First off the overall fit and finish are great, especially the blade. It almost looks PVD coated. The lasered markings are perfect. While the blade wasn’t shaving sharp it wouldn’t take much more to make it so. Blade was a little sluggish at first until I put a couple drops of thin instrument oil on both sides of the pivot point and worked it in for a minute or two. Fires good now but not snappy like it’s smaller Boker Kalishnakov cousins. I think this is a pretty good value for an auto knife this big and well made with a D2 blade and adequate for several tasks or purposes.
This knife is fairly impressive. Comes sharp. I think the thing needs played with to get the blade to swing better or lubed better. It is sort of sluggish. Otherwise good buy for the money.
