The Kizer Begleiter gets the Blade HQ Exclusive treatment with a natural G-10 handle and a black finished 20CV blade.

  • Black finished, CPM-20CV blade in a drop point style.
  • Dual thumb stud openers.
  • Natural G-10 handle with black finished hardware.
  • Stainless steel liner lock.

Begleiter comes from the German language meaning "companion". Designed for those who prefer a slim profile, the Begleiter delivers. The handle is inset from the liners and keeps this knife incredibly lightweight and subtle in the pocket. It has an open-build with two barrel spacers on either side of the elongated lanyard hole. The EDC-ready design includes a reversible tip-up carry clip. A caged ball bearing pivot ensures a smooth and reliable action. The craftsmanship of the Kizer Begleiter is finished off completely by hand for sharpening, quality inspection, and is put to the test. Kizer Cutlery strives to bring the best knives forward while keeping them affordable.

Looking for something similar but smaller? We have got you covered. The Kizer Begleiter Folding knife series has regular and mini models with unique handle materials, colors, and blades.

Stupid sharp

Just got this knife in 20CV delivered yesterday. RAZOR sharp out of the box. I damn near shaved half my arm with it. Action is smooth and pocket clip stiffness is just right for the weight. I like the translucent look but I might swap the scales.

Bought forever ago. Super buttery and scary sharp.

Can't be happier
Jeremiah B. on Mar 22, 2021

NKD!!! First day with my Kizer and I am super happy with it. Great blade material and smooth Kizer action make for a wonderful carry on a great designed knife. I'm glad I waited for this version.

Seriously buy this knife
DANIEL M. on Jul 22, 2021

I bought this knife to have a cheap m390 steel for cheap. I could not be happier with the edge retention and how well the black finish has stayed on the blade. The only damage I have done to this knife is dull the blade to point where it does not cut me on contact anymore and some wear on the closing mechanisms do tiny dents on the g-10 handles where I’ve dropped it. Overall if you want a sleek sharp as a mother knife buy this bad boy.

really smooth
Hector B. on May 31, 2021

really nice knife extremely well made but one bad thing was the blade grind was uneven on one side but can be easily fixed ,nice jade g 10 handle and awesome M390 steel
