The Benchmade Infidel is a popular OTF knife featuring a sliding button on the face of the handle, instead of the side as many other OTF knives. This amazing OTF automatic represents everything you have come to expect from Benchmade: Exceptional construction and smooth reliable action at a great price.
Benchmade changed the OTF world forever when it released the Infidel 3300 over 15 years ago. The front loaded firing button, super sexy ergonomic handle profile, and double edged dagger blade have made this a standard go-to OTF for tactical operators and OTF aficionados alike. One of the only changes to this proven model was the addition the Mini Infidel with a 3.1" blade and 7.1" in overall length. Whether you go with full-size or mini, both models feature Benchmade's state of the art OTF mechanism that provides smooth and responsive action with every fire. A deep carry pocket clip comes standard and comfortably carries the knife in a pocket or secured to a pack. It also includes a MOLLE compatible nylon sheath for more secure pack carry. There's a reason Benchmade has a reputation for making some of the best knives in the business and the Infidel OTF is one of those reasons!
Which Infidel Should I Get?
If you've sorted through the plethora of OTF automatic knives and ended up here on the Benchmade Infidel I have to say great choice. You have excellent taste and a discerning eye that only comes with years of formal knife education. Or you just trust Benchmade and that is also another solid choice! The first thing you may want to consider is that Blade HQ has the coolest exclusive Infidel model ever made with upgraded premium S30V steel and an OD green handle. If you're looking for a little less flash the full size model is also available in black with a satin or black finished blade. For those a little more EDC conscious, the Mini Infidel is also available in a black handle with satin or black dagger blade models. If you had been around a few years ago you could have taken advantage of this sweet limited edition burnt bronze Infidel! But don't be too sad. Blade HQ has always got something up its sleeve and you never know when another limited exclusive may drop. If you still can't decide be sure to check out our Mini Infidel video above or the full-size overview up top!
From Benchmade as of July 2020:
"Each new Benchmade knife is packaged with written documentation of the Benchmade Lifetime Warranty. Benchmade Knife Company, Inc. warrants to the original owner that Benchmade knives purchased from authorized dealers will be free from defects in materials and workmanship. Benchmade will, without charge, repair or replace at our (Benchmade's) option, any knife purchased from an authorized dealer and returned for warranty work by its original owner that is found to be defective by Benchmade."
There's never a dull moment with a Benchmade... That's right! We will gladly re-sharpen your Benchmade knife to a factory razor sharp edge (service does not apply to any serrated portion of the blade). If you prefer us to sharpen your blade, or if you may have neglected to maintain your edge for a while, simply ship your knife to us. We'll not only sharpen it, but we will also inspect the knife for any warranted repairs and "tune" the knife for optimum performance.
We understand that our customers may want to modify their Benchmade knife to meet their own expectations. A modified knife will void the Lifetime Warranty, but we will still offer a limited version of our LifeSharp service to these modified knives. Specifically, we will not inspect, clean, repair or replace any parts for a modified knife as we do with our standard LifeSharp Service. We will only sharpen the blade (excluding aftermarket blades) and return the knife to the owner.
