Boker Magnum

Boker Magnum

Another genuine Boker automatic knife. This knife has a black-anodized aluminum handle, but is otherwise very similar in operation and quality to the Boker Automat Kalashnikov. There is no safety mechanism, but it would be pretty difficult to depress the release button accidentally in normal use or carry. The blade is finished in semi-reflective black. The knife can be totally disassembled, if required. This knife is slightly smaller than the Automat Kalashnikov, but is still much too large to carry comfortably in the pocket of your slacks. Hold on to it when you push the button, as this baby really snaps out.

These knives are frequently on sale on-line...guess there's a bunch of them out there. Excellent choice for a durable, useful automatic knife under $40.
