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.

Customer Reviews

John M. on Jul 21, 2019

Was skeptical at first when looking at this knife. Bit the bullet and ordered it. I am very impressed. My "go to's" have always been Benchmade and Spyderco and I would put this in same class from build standpoint. Solid and well done. Excellent value.

Great EDC for the money. VG10 blade with G10 handle. Extremely smooth action and sits well in a pocket.

Great knife
Andrew H. on Jul 17, 2019

I have large hands and this knife fits them extremely well. The action took minimal break in and is amazingly smooth. Given its size, it is fairly light and sometimes I forget its in my pocket. I make sure and carry this one often.

My first Kizer
William S. on Dec 30, 2019

I have read many good things about this knife, so I decided to get one. just received it today, and right out of the box I am very impressed. The fit and finish are fantastic, and the action is superior to most other knives I own. I have an older Kershaw Liner Lock, that has been broken in to the perfect action(I always use this knife to judge the others against). I'll have to admit, the Begleiter is every bit as smooth, maybe even requiring a little less effort to open, even with a larger blade. as for the blade itself time will tell.

New favorite!

Never owned a Kizer. Fell in love with it the minute I saw it. Love the long, thin look. Arrived fast From BladeHQ, I even ordered the Mini Begleiter which was on sale. Both arrived fast. Didn't care much for the Kizer packaging but they did include a microfiber and instructions. The brown g10 is nice and grippy. I really like the lanyard hole being oval and not just a round hole. Mine came a little stiff but after a little break in the action is great. Came super sharp. Nice pocket clip tip up L/R carry drop point vg10 steel. Very happy with the purchase and into the rotation. Thanks BladeHQ

Absolutely flawless- It feels as smooth as any of my knives with bearings. I thought that the revews were maybe too enthusiastic to be real, but this knife deserves every great review. Centering, detent, sharpness, and action are all great.

Great sleek knife
Dylan M. on Feb 21, 2022

First "real" knife I've owned. Impressed by the steel quality and handles, but the blade is not sharpened that well and the liner lock is somewhat stiff, but it's still being broken into.
