First four models of Mikov automatic knives were introduced in 1989. Now two decades later you can choose from almost 100 different varieties. All Mikov autos are side openers, blade is sharp only on one side. Unlike on other automatic knives the firing spring (two firing springs in new models) can be easily replaced. The spring can be also removed (cut in half) - that way you can turn the knife into a manual folder.
Three videos (youtube.com) on How Mikov auto works, How to remove the spring and How the manual Mikov works are right here.
Mikovs are not high-tech autos but they are well designed, reliable long lasting users with very safe locking mechanism. Great value for the money.
All singlebladed models (including kits) are available for left-handed users as well (L).
NEW: All Mikov autos (also multibladed, RWL-34, damascus) can be now ordered with EXCLUSIVE or UTILITY (clip point) blade. Pocket clip can be added as well.
Lead time - 2 weeks. E-mail me for prices.
