This week’s special pays tribute to one of the most influential weapons designers of the modern age: this is the Böker Plus Kalashnikov 12.
The three-and-one-eighths inch blade is made from 440C stainless steel with either a combo spear point or combo tanto shape. Both deploy via the dual thumbstuds. The spear point version includes a flipper feature, as well, though in my opinion the thumbstuds offer better functionality.
The handle is extremely stylized aluminum with a liner-lock design, a glass breaker and a cord cutter. A cordura sheath replaces a pocket clip feature on these models. The milling does give the handle a lot of texture and good grip, and the overall hand-feel is quite comfortable.
