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.

I could not be happier with this knife. I have been wanting a Begleiter for a good long while now and have gone back and forth on it. Once I found out they come in BD1 steel I couldn't hold myself back anymore. The thumb stud action on this knife is amazing, more fidgety than any of the flippers I currently own. This is my first folder with micarta scales and definitely won't be my last. Overall the build quality and fit and finish are superb and the attention to detail is the best I've seen on a Chinese-made knife thus far.
