Product Review (submitted on January 16, 2018):
I currently carry an Infidel in each side pocket of my uniform - and I have for 8 years.
I wanted to have a knife that was easily accessible and operated by either hand - no matter how I draw it out, or which side I needed to draw it from. I didn't want to have to think about manual safeties or which way the blade was going to swing, or how the knife was oriented (sharp edge toward attacker) if I had to use it in a stressful situation.
The Infidel fits the bill. It is sharp on both sides, the mechanism is strong and resilient - allowing for reliable operation, while remaining safe against unintentional deployment of the blade.
I have had to send them both back once for a good cleaning and re-sharpening - I had also lost the tip on one - but Benchmade took care of me with no fuss - they were able to re-shape the blade back into a tip and get everything running like new again.
Good product. Good company.
