Boker Kalashnikov AK47 Tactical Folding Knife
- Made in Solingen / Germany -
The task in developing the Boker Kalashnikov was to integrate design elements of the AK-47 assault rifle and base the design on the world-famous rifles. General Mikhail Kalashnikov has personally convinced himself of the production quality at the Boker Knife Manufactory. As manufacturing method CNC-milling was preferred to casting to ensure the highest possible degree of precision. It is made of black hardcoat anodized 6061-T6 aluminum and provided with noble inlays of certified imported cocobol wood. The handle inlays show the same contour as the forward hand grip of the famous assault rifle. The clip (tip-up) is located on the back. However, the most striking recognition feature of the pocket knife is the PVD-coated 440C blade, which stylistically corresponds to the bayonet blade of the AK-47. When open, it is secured by a stable linerlock.
