Description

This model of the Kizer Mini Begleiter comes equipped with a stonewash finished drop point blade and blue G-10 handle scales.

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 a capable 2.8" stonewashed blade and reliable stainless steel liner lock mechanism. The handle is outfitted with G-10 scales, inset from the satin liners, and the pivot features blue collar accents. 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.

It's smaller in the hand than I expected. The action is smooth but not fall shut. A mini knife good for mini tasks.

In an time when so many things seem very heavily polarized, I get that for some folks, buying a Chinese made product is something they have difficulty with, and to each their own. But in this case, you'd really be overlooking a really nice item.

We often hear the expression, "that's a really great (fill in the blank) for the money." In this case, this is just simply a really great knife. It has a sleek, no nonsense, nothing fancy kind of design that I just find really appealing. Not heavy on the bling, but just attractive enough to be appealing.

It's also what I personally would consider the perfect size to make it the right knife for probably 90% of your cutting needs. You probably won't want to dress a deer with it, but for just about everything else, it's not going to seem too big or too small. I like this knife so much that I bought one in each color. And they truly do find themselves into my pocket or my pocket slip as often if not more often than knives that I paid three times as much for. Kizer hit a winning combination with this knife. It's just right.
Looks great, but difficult to deploy

This knife is very well made. The fit and finish is excellent. The steel bits are nice and smooth with perfect tolerances. The grayish blue color is perhaps my favorite of all my knives. The small details really build up to a great looking and feeling knife. It is a little small for my tastes, but not by much.

The big problem is deployment. All thumb stud knives have a certain angle they need to deploy smoothly and I am finding it hard to find this one. One time it will come out with little effort, the next it will just not deploy at all, no matter the pressure. The sweet spot is very small.

I think the main issue is that the handle depth is so narrow that I'm having a hard time getting a proper grip on it and still have my thumb in the right spot.

The standard size is a bit large, the mini is a bit small. If they had one right in between, I think I would have a "Goldilocks".
Great knife

I inadvertently lost my knife in a snow pile for two weeks. Needless to say it emerged from the snow as if if came right out of the box. Love the overall design and size of this knife, only downside is not deep pocket clip.
Beautifully made knife

This is a sweet midsize knife and it seems to be very well made. The only issue I have is that I have some arthritis is my thumbs so it can be a bit hard to get the blade to open but that may change the more I use it but other than that this is a very nice knife.

This was my first Kizer knife, and it turned out to be a winner. I gifted one to my brother and he loves it. I too find it extremely versatile as an EDC. It fits perfectly into any pocket desired, or can be clipped to any pocket. Sharp and true right out of the box, this knife is well made, easy to deploy and close. I'm glad I took the chance on this one, albeit, the price was pretty good too.

As always, BladeHQ delivered quickly, well packaged with GREAT service.
Great size for a woman

I've recently become a knife bro and I could tell my gf was becoming interested as well. When I saw this mini begleiter exclusive I knew it would make an excellent 1st EDC for her. She couldn't be happier with it! The quality is out of this word and the blue color w/stonewash blade looks beautiful! I'm curious what the normal size is like now
Perfect EDC

I was looking for an EDC folder with a smaller blade length that could be dressed up or down. The Mini Begleiter seemed to be the perfect combo of price per materials, with a minimalist design and some extra color!

The knife comes with a hair-popping edge and the 154CM should be an upgrade from the AUS-8 I was carrying before.


I took off a star because one of the G-10 scales has an imperfection around the screw. It APPEARS to have some metal stuck in it? It's nothing that stops the function of the knife, so I'm not too beat up about it. I just hope it doesn't prohibit servicing the knife down the road.

Definitely happy with the size, function, and design of the knife!
