Due to the popularity of the Begleiter, and the requests to make an even more pocket friendly version, Kizer has created the Mini Begleiter. It features all of the things that made the original so popular, just on a smaller scale. It has an open-build with two barrel spacers on either side of the elongated lanyard hole. The EDC-ready design includes a tip-up carry clip, and a caged ball bearing pivot ensures a smooth and reliable action.

Looking for something a little bigger? We got you covered. The Kizer Begleiter Folding knife series has regular and mini models with unique handle materials, colors, and blades.

Compact and snappy knife
Aaron V. on May 12, 2021

Kizer pulled it off again with this compact EDC. The finish and materials of this knife are simply unbelievable it you consider the price point of this one at just $55, Black Micarta, Black coated N690 Steel, deep carry pocket clip, super snappy action... Summarizing, this is a great small EDC that will find its way into my pocket rotation quite often, from what I have experienced so far. Dont believe me, get one for yourself. (:

Love the Pocket Knife but the clip could use some work
Jacob H. on May 31, 2021

I love this knife. Snappy out of the box. Lightweight. It quickly became my favorite EDC knife. The only hiccup is that the pocket clip bent on me after a few weeks right at the hole to access the screws. If they make the clip just a little thicker in one way or another that would fix it. I love the knife but I'm worried to carry it with the danger of the clip bending and losing the knife.
