If you've seen one, you want one! I finally got mine here, GREEN. It's action is awesome, with the blade extended it very tight. It's feel in the hand is very secure. For it's size it is so lightweight. Compare it to a cheaper knife half it's size and you'll see. It's a Benchmade and it lives up to it's name!
Worth the price

I had spent a while looking at cheaper OTFs but didnt really like the systems they offered. This knife has a little bit harder button/tab to slide, but this is important so as to avoid accidental ejections. This also helps avoid the need of a safety(which in an emergency could make a huge difference, no need to attempt, then realize its on safe, then have to take it off safe- saves time). It only took me a little bit of playing around to figure out how to manipulate my thumb for smooth function. I would not recommend purchase to someone with weak fingers or particularly small hands without first handling one.(I have never handled a mini, but if my wife wanted one, that's what I would get her) Great knife! I Love It

Also for those that have never shopped Blade HQ. It is a great place to buy knives online. I have used them for years.
well made, very sharp

I really like the infidel in green. It's not a very utilitarian type of knife, but I have others that do that. It's just a cool knife. Let's not kid ourselves here, it's primarily a weapon. That said, I would never carry a knife for self protection, that's what a concealed pistol permit is for. Really wouldn't consider it for EDC, not really what it's about. Too big legally to put in your pocket in CO.( over 3.5"), and I don't do pocket knifes in holsters on my belt.
I laughed when I saw someone say it's a $400 fidget toy, but it's not far off the mark. Well worth what I paid for it on sale at Blade HQ. Great place to buy knives.

What a great OTF Knife, the only other OTF I own to compare it to is the Microtech Ultratech Bounty Hunter which is also a sweet little OTF, the Benchmade is smooth operating and very easy to deploy and retract the blade. The Forest Green color is very nice and the price they discounted it to was a great deal coming close to $300 for an Infidel is about as good as it gets and I can say this is a solidly great EDC Knife. It is also fun to just sit there and push the Blade in and out!

After years of drooling over pics of the "Infidel" OTF. Finally being able to hold one, did not disappoint. It's weight, balance, Solid Lock-up, Razor sharp double edge blade. It made the wait all worthwhile.
Just a tiny bit of up-down play, but thats to be expected for reliability. Absolutely no side-side play. Crisp, fast, and the fitment of this OTF cannot be described. You have to hold one, and slide that perfectly grooved firing button yourself, to understand.
When Blade HQ FINALLY put them on sale, I had to jump on it. Good thing I did too, because they are sold out as of today 11/22/19.
Is the knife spendy ? Yes, But it's a Benchmade. My first, but it won't be my last.....

I received this knife in a factory sealed box. The knife had a blade that had so much side-to-side and up-and-down play that the knife actually rattled when the blade was extended and the knife was moderately shaken. I e-mailed Benchmade and described the condition of the knife. I was told that "The tolerances within the Infidel can change over time and it all depends on who assembled the knife here in Oregon". They offered to repair the knife for me but I decided to return the knife instead. Blade HQ refunded my full purchase price and even paid for the return shipping. I give Benchmade a grade of D and Blade HQ an A+!

I'd held one before and yeah, it fits great in the hand, but after actually carrying it i noticed ridges on the handle are cleverly andgled, make getting the knife out of your pocket fast and easy.

Typical pristine Benchmade quality. Heat treat is always spot on. The Benchmade warranty is legendary.

I will tell you from personal experience that the deployment action on this knife is outstanding. I thoroughly tested it one day in class and the blade shot directly through the palm of my hand. Please do not do what I did. I am telling you right now: this blade deploys hard enough to go through flesh, and it dependably can be re-mounted back onto its spring housing when the blade hits bone, all with a flick of the firing mechanism. Its a great design and is perfect for soldiers and lawmen in need of a last ditch friend.

Seriously. Don't deploy it into your hand. Yes, it works.
Great OTF automatic

Looks great and feels comfortable in the hand. Deployment does take a bit of effort but it's not unreasonable and there little chance of an accidental opening. The texture on the deployment slide is course and will test the callouses on your thumb but there's almost no chance of your thumb sliding off. The blade both extends and retracts with authority and there is little play when extended. I have handled a few but this is my first automatic and my first OTF. I think that I've spoiled myself.
Great knife, excellent build

Yea itís a bit pricy but you get what you pay for, made in Oregon city, Oregon USA. Very quick and crisp action with just a little play to compensate for a little dirt should one be in the sand box. And a crazy sharp durable blade.

I love the handle, great ergonomics and deployment switch. Only issues I have with it are the blade play and weak spring tension. Most OTFs Iíve used fire out with much more authority.
My Worst OTF

Brandon D.

Have many OTF knives, from a cheap Lightning OTF, to Microtechs, to custom Deadlock. This Benchmade OTF has the most play out of any other OTF I have ever handled, including my Lightning OTF, which is saying something. Might just be mine though, as I've handled other Infidels at the store and they did not have the same blade play as mine (granted it was the 'standard' version). I've had this blade for a while now, but didn't try another Infidel until recently. I just chalked it up to it being a Benchmade... :/ If not for the blade play issue, it would get a higher rating.
perfect color for this knife!

just got mine in the mail....the pictures online DO NOT do this color justice, it looks like a matte pearl green, should have been the 10yr. anniversary color over the silver. Excellent exclusive Blade HQ!!! got this for myself for my birthday and I'm more than happy with it. oh and great shipping from you guys, I paid 3$ extra for Express and you guys got it to me in 2 days! just a day after my Bday!! Beautiful knife and excellent service!

Yea itís a bit pricy but you get what you pay for, made in Oregon city, Oregon USA. Very quick and crisp action with just a little play to compensate for a little dirt should one be in the sand box. And a crazy sharp durable blade.
Awesome Knife

The look of this knife is top notch and the deployment is superb. The knife was a gift from my wife and the guys at Blade HQ helped her with making the purchase over the phone amazingly easy. Canít say enough about this place and this knife!!!
Good but could be better

I love the handle, great ergonomics and deployment switch. Only issues I have with it are the blade play and weak spring tension. Most OTFs Iíve used fire out with much more authority.
My Worst OTF

Have many OTF knives, from a cheap Lightning OTF, to Microtechs, to custom Deadlock. This Benchmade OTF has the most play out of any other OTF I have ever handled, including my Lightning OTF, which is saying something. Might just be mine though, as I've handled other Infidels at the store and they did not have the same blade play as mine (granted it was the 'standard' version). I've had this blade for a while now, but didn't try another Infidel until recently. I just chalked it up to it being a Benchmade... :/ If not for the blade play issue, it would get a higher rating.
perfect color for this knife!

Excellent exclusive Blade HQ!!! got this for myself for my birthday and I'm more than happy with it. oh and great shipping from you guys, I paid 3$ extra for Express and you guys got it to me in 2 days! just a day after my Bday!!
