I bought my Mini in December of 2015 and carry it everyday as my duty knife. Never had any issues with it so far other than doing periodic (twice a year) cleaning to make sure gunk doesn't hamper the action. I start with using canned air to blow out any particles, use non-dust attracting light lubrication by working the action several times, and then finish off by wiping clean excess oil. I make it a habit of playing with my Infidel a couple times a month, to make sure there's no sluggishness with extending or retracting the blade. So far so good and my fellow officers are always envious my Mini and how low profile it is when it's in my pocket.

The first knife I received had two defects in the blade, (surprised it got out of the factory in that condition) but hey... sh** happens. I returned the knife and quickly received a brand new one with a razor sharp blade. It's my EDC along with my 9mm. God Bless America!

Let me start off by saying that I didn't want to have to write this review. I feel like there is an unfortunate bias when it comes to reviews in that the vocal minority tend to be the ones leaving negative reviews, whilst the vast majority with positive experiences tend to be silent.

I received the Infidel mini on January 2, 2018. The purchase and shipping process went pretty well besides a request to change the shipping method going undiscovered. I wasn't too bent out of shape considering the holiday seasons were in full swing. When I received the product however, I was very disappointed that the knife would not function well at all. It misfired 80% of the time and only managed to lock in place when the knife was held parallel to the ground. Even then it would only fire about half the time. Being that it's a $350 knife I was rather alarmed and knew something was wrong. I immediately (January 2) wrote a support/warranty request explaining the issue I was having. What dissatisfied me the most is that I have yet to be contacted by the Benchmade staff.

Finally having been frustrated enough, I decided to take matters into my own hands and disassemble the knife. I should mention I'm rather technical in engineering and would not advise other customers in doing the same especially considering it will void your lifetime warranty. After disassembling the knife I found a screw floating around underneath the blade which I discovered belonged to the spring locking mechanism attached to the rear of the blade. Adding a bit of blue loctite to the screw and tightening it, I reassembled the knife and tested it's function. It worked flawlessly, although, there are some internal scratches in the knife

Having do do this work myself and voiding my lifetime warranty, is not acceptable. Seeing that it failed to function right from the get go, tells me that any sort of quality control Benchmade has is non-existent. Like I said my knife now works fine and I'm certain my case is the outlier. Just be aware this could happen to you and you may not be contacted by their customer service department. I have always considered Benchmade as being one of the highest quality knife manufacturers in the world, however, I might be rethinking this statement.

I knew this knife would be incredible due to the overall quality of several other Benchmade knives I own, but this thing blew my mind!
Button was a little stiff at first but it got better with time.
Buy one!

After 12-15 light uses it failed to close. Blade remained loose, sliding back and forth by finger pressure.

I have had my Mini Infidel for over 10 years and carry it every where I go. I consider it an amazing tool but also a quick show-stopper for self defense. I keep it clean and oiled every few months and it continues to work flawlessly. The ability to personalize and etch it is a big bonus although I only recently found out that was an option. I bought mine from a Army/Navy store and didn't know about that as an option.

Veteran, Gunsmith, Mechanical Designer, and Machinist. All 4 of my personalities approve. The perfect blend of size and function. For big days, I have my Pagan. For those other days, the mini infidel proves more than worthy. Beautiful craftsmanship, amazing design.

Everyone thought that I just wanted to look like a bad ass having a switchblade. In all honesty he it is cool, but on the other hand it is an amazing knife to carry every day. I would choose it over my 25 other bench maid knife's and I do nearly every day. The only days that I don't choose this knife over one of my folding bench maids is on weekends or if I'm going out to dinner or to a wedding or some sort of fancy event. I just wish that they would give us the option to make one side partially serrated. That would really make it the ultimate knife for me that and if we could turn off the auto stopper. I'm guessing they can't do that for legal reasons but it would be nice to be able to just push it up against somebody throat and have it do the work for me if they're truemy trying to kill me. The only thing about this knife is after about six months you will need to send it in to be serviced. As I have recently found out despite keeping it clean and wailing at the blade it does not retract fully every time as it did when it was new which can be quite painful if you don't notice it and you stick it back in your pocket I definitely recommend using the molle case provided with the night. For some reason my knife didn't come with one. Could be because it was a special order and do they just forgot to put it in there I don't know. Either way that would definitely be a nice thing to have. If you're on the fence about this knife, you're exactly where I was six months ago. People may say there it's silly and that it serves no real every day purpose but the truth is it does. It takes a 1/10 the time to cut a seatbelt with this knife then it would with any regular folding pocket knife you just have to know how to use it, it's just common sense, Don't stick the pointy end in to the person that is still in their car unconscious. That's all there is to it. And living in Alaska I don't even have to be an EMT or a police officer, etc. to get this knife.

Anyways in summary it's a kick ass night it's built like a tank just freaking buy it already you won't regret it. If you do call me and I'll buy it from you as long as you don't have your name engraved into it

I was skeptical of getting away from my trusted side folder, but after purchasing this knife I can't live without it. I love the OTF action for one-handed work, and just the ease of taking it out of my pocket and BOOM! I have a sharp blade when I need it! It's stood up to the harsh environments of ocean salt spray to the deserts of the Middle East! I own multiple Benchmade products, but this is my GO-TO blade!

I have a broad collection of pocket knives and I can't help but reach for this one every morning when I leave. It is a conversation starter for anyone that knows knives but to anyone else its just a cool pocket knife. It is small enough that it is comfortable in your pocket and light enough that if you wear loose shorts it won't bruise your leg if you go for a run. I love mine but it's definitely not cheap. I wouldn't recommend this to someone who leans towards more traditional pocket knives but for a gadget enthusiast or Bond fan that doesn't mined paying for it this is the knife for you.

High quality construction, let down a bit by the inherent weaknesses of an OTF, namely play in the blade, and a thin, small blade. Additionally, the grind on the bade is clearly designed for display, and has a rather poorly finished 'backside' for a $400 knife.
Also, as noted by others, can be difficult to retract at times, and the pressure required to retract or deploy seems to vary.

However, this is my fifth Benchmade, and I'm keeping it, and will buy more.

Question for Benchmade: What is the included angle for sharpening?

Thanks.

Got my Mini Infidel about a year ago now, I tend to wait on writing reviews until I have really used the product for a while.

Fits in your hand great, easy to slide spring loaded knife open, sometimes difficult to retract blade with one finger. Mine is the coated black finish, there is a little wear of the coating after repetitive use/training. Slight blade shift when extended, belt clip works well, easy to conceal in jeans/pockets.

The only problem is that sometimes the blade fails to extend fully when sliding the trigger upwards, not sure if its a knife malfunction or just needs to be lubricated/cleaned. Haven't sharpened it yet, still extremely sharp!

Price is ok, everything could always be less, quality is alright minus the random misfire of the blade.
