At nearly 10" overall the Boker Plus Manual Kalashnikov Folder is a big sturdy knife. The grip is contoured and feels very good in the hand. The action is smooth and the lock-up is like a fixed blade. The Boker Kalashnikov 101 features a powder coated black aluminum handle and a bead blast finished 440C blade. This manual-action blade is opened via ambidextrous thumb disc. There is a flipper on the back so the operator can push the blade out a bit and finished the job with a simple flick of the wrist. Other features: Black powder coated handles, 1.5mm stainless liners, glass breaker, liner lock and a pocket clip (tip up).
