BLUF: After 8 yrs of daily carry I recommend this knife for it's quality, resilience, and wow factor.
I purchased this blade 8 yrs ago as a gift for myself based on Benchmade's reputation, and it's wow factor, but it has become so much more than that. It has been my daily carry both in and out of Marine Corps uniform for that time and it functions just as it did the day I got it.. It's price would probably encourage you to lock it away in a glass case, but mine is well worn and has never been treated like a princess. The black finish has faded and all the handle edges shine, but the blade extends and retracts with a flash, holds an edge, and does not have excessive side to side play (some play must be expected from a OTF due to the design, but a Benchmade is the tightest you can get. I never notice any play in daily use and had to check it just based on the comments from others in these reviews). It has seen the sand of numerous austere combat deployments and the wet of Southern training. What are my qualifiers, you ask? First, the blade edge will rust without care. I'm not talking about excessive care, but now and again it needs to be scrubbed and oiled, no biggie. Second, the mechanism needs to be periodically cleaned and lubed. Dirt, pocket lint, etc will get into the mechanism over time and slow/stop it's movement. For daily pocket carry this normally only entails applying some oil on the guide rails where the blade extends every now and again. If mine has gotten exposed to real dirt then I use an aerosol lube that evaporates like a hair clipper lube. This allows me to spray it in the blade opening and allow the excess and dirt to exit out the drain hole in the bottom. Lastly, it is an OTF dagger not a camp knife or a multitool, so that should be kept in mind with what you think you will use it for. I carry mine daily for defense but also use it like a utility knife, but there are times that another more robust blade might be better. In my mind it is a defensive blade that I can also use for basic living. If I was expecting significant daily blade work outside the design specs for a thin dagger I would carry another blade that would be thicker and larger (and probably cheaper and more expendable) to do that heavy duty grunt work.

Just bought this knife and absolutely love it. Price was a little outrageous but it is a cool knife. Definitely not an every day knife but nice addition to your collection. I love Benchmade and will continue to use thier products.

This was an investment. My wife would panic if she found out I paid this, but I know knives and I know I wanted a knife I could trust. An infidel is quite unique among the many knives, which is a selling point, but I like to know I have backup from the company if I have issues. I really wanted a 940 and will surely get one, but I have many good folders. Until now, I had nothing like this.

Reading the other reviews tells me the blade can be affected by weather so I will keep this in mind. It remains to be seen how many miles can be placed on the opening mechanism, but knowing I can send it in for repair feels good. This ought to be the case at this price. The heft is nice, not being too light but yet not too bulky. The construction is solid and due to my other D2 blades, I know D2 is a great knife steel, but have patience when you sharpen it. As said, my biggest concern is the opening mechanism, as this opens or it doesn't. But I have faith in Benchmade and know they wouldn't do to themselves what Buck did with the BuckMaster years ago.

I am not sure this is everyday carry as it is tactical, but then, why not? A quality blade is a quality blade and I won't be lifting cars with it or digging up rocks. Don't abuse it and it should be just fine for a long time. Besides, I sincerely doubt an owner of this knife only owns this knife.

Owning this and a 940 would solidify a personal cutting inventory if you want to carry both. Keep in mind that The Infidel isn't for everyone, so know that having this means you have a singular, fascinating cutting tool made by a great company. Show it off. Brag about it. Take care of it. Eventually pass it on. I am holding it, playing with it and looking it over while writing this, and I can say that while I'm a bit dizzy for spending this much, I can't deny the smile I get when holding it and watching that pretty blade appear and disappear. Overall, I am happy with this and I'll care for it.

this is a good knife and i like it a lot. I bought the satin blade...but, i didn't realize that the D2 steel does not hold up to any moisture at all... i took fishing a couple times and wiped the blade off after, but the blade still started to rust within a couple weeks on the edges.... had i would've know this, I wouldve bought a black blade that has a little more corrosion resistance

I thought that I would never spend this much for a knife, but I had to have it. This is a killing tool. It's not a everyday knife.Absolutely perfect for the intended use. I love this knife, but I hope I don't have to use it.

I am currently on my third blade on my second Infidel. The Infidel is very aesthetically pleasing to the eye but with terrible design flaws that must be addressed in the future. Horizontal and or lateral movement within a few light uses of the tool at the base of the blade. Benchmade fixes problem but lasts long enough to butter and few pieces of bread, then back to the shop with the Infidel. Blade is very nice, holds an edge and durability of the blade is excellent. Owned the Infidel mini but sold it right after having to bring it back for repair within three weeks (21) days. Having been both assistant instructor as well as lead instructor in numerous edged weapons courses. Specializing in carry and quick deployment techniques as well as lethal strikes. The two sided spear blade is an amazingly lethal configuration. I'm a civilian now, stil carry my Infidel but it's a solid number 5 of 5 in order of deployment. If the unfortunate were to happen and I was forced to defend myself or others. Left and right hand would have an AFO 2 TANTO 50% serrated. In case of loss of either primary, would then cross draw my ADAMAS 375BK. Worst case scenario loss of weapon or weapons already deployed, due to multiple attackers and or having to throw your primary or secondary edge, only after deployment of my third AFO 2, then and only then would I use my Infidel to dispatch my attacker or attackers. I've been carrying Benchmade products since I can remember I am a huge fan, the Infidel is pretty to look at but so was my 5th ex-wife but I couldn't trust her either. ...

Mini Infidel Super awesome tool. Everyone that encounters this tool, again is in awe. Benchmade all the way. Like everything else that is used in harsh environments it must be cleaned and well oiled to maximize functionality. Thanks to customer service,sales,and the men & woman that make it happen over there.

Sincerely
Artemio

While I know Benchmade knives to be some of the very best, with customer service that ranks number one in my book, the Infidel is a huge disappointment. The blade quickly becomes loose and Benchmade needs to really improve on this item.

So out of all the benchmades I own, this one troubles me the most, for 400 bucks you wouldn't think that you would have to send it in every couple of months because the blade comes loose and jiggly, or the spring gets weak and won't deploy the blade every time reliably, it's geared toward military and police however u couldn't see it serving a purpose for armed forces any where that has adverse conditions such as humidity, sand, rain, or water, hate writing a bad review but this blade I just sent back got it refinished and retired it to a safe queen because it became too troublesome.

The infidel molds to your hand and the fact you can rest assure that BenchMade will be there to service it anytime it needs it really is a selling point..... Great job BenchMade
