Boker’s Kalashnikov series of automatic knives is one of the community’s favorite choices for EDC in that category.

It features a 3.375" AUS-8 stainless steel blade and an ergonomic aluminum handle that makes for an easy grip during use. Just check your local laws before ordering to make sure that you’re allowed to have this beauty of a knife first.

This model features a beautiful copper handle and a 2.5" CPM-S35VN cleaver-style sheepsfoot blade and an easy one-handed flipper opening that makes this knife a joy to use.

Butterfly knives (also known as balisongs) are pretty cool, but it’s really important to know how to use and flip them properly and safely before you even think about carrying them every day. And finding a good training knife is hard, since it seems there’s only super-expensive models and then cheap, flimsy offerings that might actually hurt you more than if you flipped the sharpened real thing instead. Now's the chance to pick up Boker’s line of balisong trainers available at the BladeHQ anniversary sale for a song at $29.99 right now. While you aren’t going to accomplish any cutting or slicing tasks with it, you can get some training in or have some fun flipping it around without hurting yourself.

The Sinkevich-designed 0452CF is one of the most-carried ZT knives ever made, and from its gorgeously-sleek looks to its premium design it’s easy to see why.

The Bedlam is one of Benchmade’s premiere tactical knives, featuring hard (58-60 RC) 154CM stainless steel with a wicked clip point blade shape that features an upturned blade that makes fine detail slices an easy thing to accomplish. The AXIS-lock ensures zero blade play during even serious hard use, and the full-size 5.76" ergonomic handle lets you get a complete grip on the blade for total control. For emergency situations, the pommel works as a glass breaker, and the combination serrated blade lets you cut through rough material like rope in a flash.

With a design by Lucas Burnley and premium Bohler M390 stainless steel for its 3.35" blade, you already have a recipe for success with this EDC knife. But the fact that it’s marked down 50% off and just $129.99 almost makes picking this up a no-brainer. Its wharncliffe-style blade is well-suited for more than your average daily cutting and slicing tasks, but there’s also enough of a point to pierce through most anything you need. And because the design of the knife allows for a liner-lock that has the reliability of a framelock but giving you G10 scales on both sides, you have complete ambidextrous control over the cut even if things get wet during use.

Awesome tip-- thanks for sharing! I just grabbed one of the Boker Kalashnikov Autos. They have them on sale in a number of different colors and finishes, not just the white handle. Quite a few more traditional choices for the $35 price, and the traditional black & beadblast is even cheaper at $30.
It's nice that you guys are repping BladeHQ more now too. A lot of links used to go to Amazon, and as much as I love Amazon, if I want a knife then I go to BladeHQ. Most times they are cheaper, and offer better descriptions and reviews, as well as video "walkthroughs" which is an absolutely stunning feature.
