Product Review (submitted on June 28, 2016):
The Infidel that I purchased several years ago while I was in law enforcement stopped functioning properly after about a month of carrying it. The blade sticks when I try to extend or retract it. I read other reviews, both positive and negative, about the Infidel. Some of the negative reviewers seem to experience the same problem that I did even after returning theirs for repairs. I tried blowing it out and oiling it as others said they did but neither worked. I was so disappointed with the knife after spending so much money for it that I put it away and never bought another Benchmade. I own three others.Those three are great.(2 mini-reflex and 1 other that's now discontinued) Those styles I can speak about but in my opinion $475 would be better spent on any other style instead of the Infidel plus be a lot less expensive.
