This knife is a work of art and one of Boker' finest pieces. The first thing you'll notice when you get your knife is that the box is shaped like an AK-47 magazine (the name "Kalashnikov comes from the Russian who designed the AK-47 assault rifle). The knife features a grey aluminum handle with molded finger grips. The design is thin, elegant and comfortable. The blade is AUS-8 steel with a black finish. The action of this knife is first rate and comparable to that of the Boker Magnum series. All Kalashnikovs come with a pocket clip for easy carry.
