This Blade HQ Exclusive Boker Desert Warrior XXL Kalashnikov features a copper D2 blade and a OD green 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 self-defense knife, or a real statement of an EDC. The enormous Bowie blade is made of tough D2 tool steel, and the handle is made of aluminum. Add a huge automatic to your collection today.

A kalashnikov's a kalashnikov.
It’s a big knife but carries well for its size and isn’t heavy at all. It’s pretty snappy for the size and came decently sharp and centered. Definitely a good price for such a Beast of a blade!
This knife is actually a good size, big without being ridiculously big and heavy. The action is not super snappy, but its wearing in nicely. My only criticism is that it wasn't very sharp out of box. It will slice paper, but won't shave hair (which is basically the lowest level of what i consider actually sharp). Overall though, I'm very happy with it.
I was looking to buy the regular Kalashnikov but the model I wanted wasn't available. I purchased this XXL and wow! It's bigger than I expected. Great design, balance and weight. To me you can use it as EDC if you wear jeans or cargo pants, nothing too tight, LOL. I am just starting to collect, I am glad I chose this knife. Next up the regular and the mini.
They should have made this AGES ago. Perfection, for what it is. Great blade/handle color combo as well.
Ships fast! This is a beautiful large auto that snaps out with major authority. The button is crisp and low profile in the pocket. I also have the Boker Burnley Kihon Desert in the same color pattern with 3.25 blade. These are very well finished and feel great in the hand! It fits awesome in the pocket too. AMAZING!!!!
Great addition to the kalashnikov line. Is it weird that I thought it would be bigger? ;) Action does not disappoint, very snappy. Great color scheme as always. Thanks BHQ!
Oh yes. I feel like I have to quote Crocodile Dundee every time I pull this beast out. It is a nice weight for the size, not overly heavy, fits in most pockets (no skinny jeans here), and the finish is great on it. It snaps nice and strong. It will be in my EDC rotation. Go big or go home.
Locks up nicely, opens smoothly. D2 steel holds a nice edge. Carries discreetly for how large it is! Love it!
WOW!! This Böker+ AK74 XXL automatic knife is very, very good! It's so big, but I like that a lot, that's why I bought it. The automatic action is pretty quick & crisp & the button doesn't stick. There's only one thing about it that needs improvement. It wasn't very sharp from the factory. It wouldn't shave arm hair right out of the box. This is unusual for Böker knives, ime. This is my 5th Böker knife & my fourth automatic one. I love the desert tan blade & aluminum OD green handle. It's a very impressive looking knife! I'm surprised at how thin the handle is, but it's not too thin. I have fairly large hands & it feels good in my hand. My first Böker knife was the Magnum AK47 automatic before they started using D2 steel. It's still razor sharp & the action is still snappy & crisp & it's 15 years old! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this AK74 XXL. Thanks!
Size is outstanding not noticeable when carrying in pocket addition to my other Boker Kalashnikov knives.
I have the mini, regular and now the xxl. The xxl is a lot bigger than I expected, it fits really nice in my hand. It does't carry to bad with jeans on. Love these knifes.
The large blade opens with an authiritative "thwack". Watched some reviews from nearly a year ago, all I can think is Boker increased their quality control as mine had no play or stick. Bought two, one for a friend as at this price point, why not. I got the green with bronze blade and all blacked out versions. Both came out of the box (shapped like an AK magazine) working perfectly. Great work guys!
Broker were the first ones to make the gigantic auto and it's not that bad actually. It's light weight, very ergonomic and handles well. I'm a diehard cold steel fanatic and I'm always packing a recon 1 XL, but I've been carrying this since I bought it and I like it. So far I haven't found anything I don't like about the knife. I'll probably buy another.
This thing is a beast! A ton of knife with decent fit and finish for the price point. Maybe not the most practical choice for EDC but definitely one of the most fun!
I own way too many Kalashnikovs, and have given away almost as many as I own! But I couldn't pass this up...big and bad, indeed! Deployment a little sticky out of the box, but I'm sure it will work its way out with a little oil and TLC. Closing is a little easier. D2 steel is appreciated. This knife might make a good camper, but EDC? Probably not so much! Can't wait for DW OTF; coming soon, right?
I wish this knife was made in a better steel. AUS8 would have been better. I carried it a couple of times and it already has a lot of rust spots from very light use. It would be a 5 star knife if it wasn't for the sorry excuse of steel.
