A review from: Brett
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!
A review from: Ric
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.
A review from: John
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?

A review from: Bowker
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.
