    Mikov switchblades

    Been looking at these for a while and thinking about getting one. Seems to be built like a tank. Does anybody have any experience with them?

    I'll be keeping an eye on this thread, as I've also been looking at the Mikov automatics.

    Can't go wrong. The hard part is deciding what model to get. To solve this issue buy multiple models.

    I like the plain 241 model. Probably go with the abs black plastic scales on it for now. Although the stag handled one looks pretty sweet!

    I have a variety of automatic knives and the Mikovs are better than most and as good as any in my book. Only problem, despite the fact switchblades are now legal to carry in Texas, the Mikov blade design precludes it from being carried. There is still a law on the Texas books that makes carrying a "dirk, dagger, poniard, or Bowie knife" illegal. (I know it seems silly as hell that a Bowie knife is illegal to carry in Texas). The center line blade makes the Mikov a dagger. Hopefully this latest Supreme Court ruling about Tasers in MA will have some carry over and we can get this silly as law off the books in TX.

    They do them with regular (non-dagger) blades now too.

    Left-handed auto knives? Great, something else I didn't know I needed.

    I need to get out more. I think that's the first time I've ever seen a switchblade with a can opener, bottle opener, saw and corkscrew.

    When I lived in Europe I saw Hubertus equivalent of a Swiss Army knife with the main blade being automatic. That was in the late 80's so this is really nothing new.

    I'm willing to bet plastic and/or pot metal is used in the mechanism. Inexpensive auto knives always fail if opening and closing repeatedly period. Get a quality flipper and play with it all you want.

    Can't wait to see it. I collect switch blades, and I'm interested to see how the mechanism is built on this one. It looks like its built like my Boker, but I'll wait for your pics.

    I picked up a Hubertus in W. Germany in 1989, great knife, but just has the single automatic blade. Interesting though, it has the same type of opening flip lever mechanism as the Mikov.

    The lever is one of the best designs that lasts for years. I have 2 Hubertus, and one Boker in that style. The Boker I've had since 1994, and it still works like the day I bought it.
