BO01KALS173N: Automat Kalashnikov Mini 70th Anniversary
Boker Plus
 
General Mikhail Kalashnikov was a longtime friend of Boker's, and the Kalashnikov series of knives have become a fixture in their lineup over the years. For the 70th Anniversary of the Automat Kalashnikov 47 assault rifle, Boker wanted to offer fans and collectors of these knives an especially exclusive model. For the blade steel, they use the powder metallurgical steel CTS-XHP, which stands out due to its superior edge retention. The fine satin finish of the blade along with the anniversary logo, underline the exclusivity of this line. The aluminum handle in gunmetal gray completes the look, and the pocket clip allows easy carry. Each version is limited to just 1,500 pieces worldwide. Available in four different models. This mini version features a push button lock (non-automatic). Blade length: 2.5". Blade thickness: 0.11". Overall length: 5.75". Weight: 3.4 oz. Made in Taiwan.

This is NOT an automatic knife.

Knife Makers – Listen Up
This knife is almost there. Where, you’re wondering? Almost, a good “Chicago-Carry Knife” (jurisdictions that prohibit carrying of knives over 2.5”). The problem with almost every 2.5” bladed knife is, that the knife makers make the grip in a small, pen knife size to keep the knife well balanced. Balance be dammed! I don’t care about balance. I’m carrying a 2.5” blade as a compromise to satisfy some stupid law. What I want is control, and a secure, full sized grip in that compromise. My hand, index-to-pinky, measures 4”; not, 3”. I want a stout .125” thick blade for strength, deep long hollow grind for slicing, some belly to extend the cutting edge, strong point, strong lock-up, with a strong, easy opening pivot. I don’t care if a 2.5” blade looks ridiculous with a 4” handle. I’d be carrying a 3.5” bladed folder if it weren’t for these stupid knife laws, and my 2.5” folder needs to perform all the task of the larger knife. >>>>> The mini Automat Kalashnikov is perfect if you’re looking for a small collectable paper weight. I don’t collect paper weights. My pinky finger hangs uselessly off the handle. I would recommend this for Lilliputians, elves, and hobbits, but there is no thumb stud, fingernail nick, or flipper to aid in opening. I know they said this was NOT an automatic, but this is not even a manual-matic. As is, this is doll house furniture. Nice blade, and grind on the blade, though. >>>>>> I’m giving the mini Automat Kalashnikov, 2 stars. Sometimes, if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s still not a duck. At least, make it usable.
