Boker’s Automat Kalashnikov Folders: A fantastic new offering from Boker that comes by way of Asia. These are full sized folders with large blades and Zytel handles with steel liners. The action is easy and fast as you use the lever (base of blade) to swing that big blade open and feel the “ca-chunk” of the liner lock flexing into place. These Bokers are not assisted openers or automatic openers (switchblades) but they are fast. Here is some more information:
Officially licensed Kalashnikov knife series. Although the name includes the word “automat” – these are not automatic opening knives. With an overall length of 9 7/8″, the design is a massive heavy duty knife, which performs extremely well, not only in tactical situations, but also in the great outdoors. The FRN handle provides for a safe and secure grip, and the 1.5 mm stainless steel liners underneath the handle scales provide additional stability. Friction grooves in the handle and thumb ramp allow safe handling. The rust resistant 440C stainless steel blade can be opened with the thumb stud or the side-guards, even with gloves on. The glass-breaker tip at the end of the handle is another useful feature of these. Liner locking system and pocket clip for tip-up carry. Blade length: 4″. Weight: 6.4 oz.
