One of the things I hear all the time about these knives is that they’re great “for the money.” It can be hard to compare knives in different price ranges, and the Kizer Begleiter falls in that zone that’s too expensive to truly be called a budget knife, but not high-end enough to be a premium knife.
I have reviewed a lot of budget-friendly EDC knives over the last few years, and I have seen many disappointing knives come my way.

They say go big or go home, and it doesn’t get a whole lot bigger than Cold Steel’s All Terrain Chopper. This is one big mother of a machete, and I knew as soon as I saw it that I would eventually have to get one and test it out.
The idea behind the Gerber Versafix is to provide the advantages of both a camp knife and a machete in one package. At a glance, I’d say they’ve succeeded. Bigger than your average bushcraft knife and smaller than your average machete, the Versafix threads that needle nicely.
I picked up a Tops Machete .230 in the hope that it would be the ultimate slashing and chopping tool. And while I perhaps wouldn’t go quite that far after putting it to the test, I have to say that this really is a premium machete, and one that I’m very impressed with.
It’s small, but not too small, and light, but not too light. The handle is very smooth and fits my hand perfectly, and the stainless steel blade is beautifully shaped and finished, with clean lines and great attention to detail. Overall, the Arrui is a simple but impressive knife right out of the box.

I bought the knife in June of this year (2022) and never got around to writing a review until now, so my opinions have changed. First, don’t waste your money on a $20 knife…ever. Save a few more bucks and get to the $30-$50 range. However, if you were to spend your last $22 on a knife, should it be the Zilch? Maybe, it’s not a total loser considering the entire cheap knife landscape.
